You have done it-The Classroom Block is up!

Dear Partners and Friends,

We have been quiet for some time-something great was cooking!

We have been busy since January with the construction of a new classroom block. It is now completed; ready for use. Some of you would recall in 2013 when we were running the "Build a classroom block campaign" which was part of this project. Your efforts finally yielded the results. We took long to feedback since we were pulling the resources together but we had not forgotten to share with you the good news.

We are in the process of building 2 classrooms for our second chance education pupils. This year we have 103 children attending classes getting prepared for the formal education. These are children who would have dropped out of school due to poverty and other social challenges. We take them and assist through community based study group learning. When they are ready we send them to the formal school to join their peers. We will then provide educational support. For the planned 2 classrooms, one is already finished and the other one still under construction.

Esther * one of the pupils could not hide her joy " I never dreamt of learning in a proper classroom, I thought I would spent all my time here learning under a tree". The teachers, staff members, board members and parents are all excited about the project. Thank you a million times!

We still need your support for school fees, furniture for the classes, food for the children, uniforms and stipends for the volunteers. We are proud of your unwavering support over the years.

 

Thank you heartily,

Dear Friends and partners,

Thank you a million times for supporting our project. We have finally finished the borehole installation and 300 children are enjoying access to safe clean water. We are always grateful of your kindness. Children are now able to have adequate water for drinking, hygiene purposes and food preparation and watering the vegetable garden. Water problems are now in the past.

Please kindly continue to support us through our project," Second Chance Education for orphans in Mbare which is still featuring on Global Giving Chiedza Child Care Center page. The borehole project is complimentary to the second chance education as it provide water for children who come and learn at the center.

 

Thank you very much!

Chiedza Child Care Centre report- Give-Only one borehole to 300 Children in Zimbabwe'

At last 300 children now have access to abundance safe, clean and portable water

Dear friends,

You did a marvellous job to donate some funds towards the installation of a borehole at Chiedza Child Care Centre in Harare.  Through your support, children are now enjoying their right to clean water! In the past couple of years, water supply at the centre which supports 1500 children per year with 300 children visiting the centre daily has been very erratic. In fact, the water crisis had reached alarming levels to the extent that the management was now contemplating asking guardians to bring water for use at the centre. All these are now history; clean water is now available at the centre 7 days a week!

Cooking and growing of vegetables critical for children’s nutrition are now being grown at a larger scale to reduce expenditures on food purchases.  Even grounds and toilets maintenance are now easy, because water is now readily available. Children could not hide their joy when they were told that the new borehole is now functional.  One child Chido said, “Now we have dignity because we now have abundant water; we were tired of avoiding our toilets just because there was no water for cleaning them after use…..” The local authority water supplies though erratic will be augmented by the supplies from the borehole.

Thank you once again good friends, until next time, Good bye for now!
