While Education is at the heart of The Tekeshe Foundation our Youth Program is committed to the social development of young people. Young people need to be taught to have good moral values, they should be taught to be honest, kind, to respect their elders and to work hard. Yet due to the deaths of many adults young people in these rural areas have no parental guidance and there is no one to teach them good moral values.
As part of our Youth Program we offer a Scouting Program. Currently the Scouting program is offered at Rimbi Township. We are pleased to announce that the Scouting Regional director has requested that we join forces to expand the program to rural schools in Chipinge. Through this partnership the Tekeshe Foundation will organize the Scouting workshops and camping events. In addition the Tekeshe Foundation will provide scouting uniforms and provide the funds for the scouts to attend the annual jamboree that is held in Bulawayo city in Zimbabwe.
The scouting program means a lot to the youth in these rural areas. It also serves as a support program to the vast majority of these kids who are orphans. Your support has made it possible for the Tekeshe Foundation to sponsor the scouts to attend the annual jamboree. The majority of the kids have never been to town - so you can just imagine what this trip means to them. It is a life changing experience where they get to meet kids from the other parts of the country.
Thank you so much for making a difference in the lives of these children.
