The kiddies life-skills development and exposure program ends on a good note today as 20 of the girls and boys toured The Zambezi Explorer in Victoria Falls. It was an amazing experience seeing how much joy the children had and passion some of they carried away from the event.
Special thanks goes to Michelle Gapara the Founder of Bella Bright Enterprises for organizing this holiday life-skills program and The Zambezi Explorer for hosting the children.

Construction works taking place at Chewumba and Kanywambizi pry schools. We have reached this far through collaborations with Hwange Rural District Council and School Development Committees who have contributed bricks, river-sand and labor respectively.
Our role is coordination and providing such materials which local authorities could not provide i.e cement, brick-force, window/door frames, roof and other such materials which are not locally available.
