The team held a tour of the school and observed the tremendous effort already made by the community, and the new toilets that have just been completed..
Mrs Gumbonzvanda expressed her appreciation to the Asutralian Government who had donated the building materials for a school block; as well as the Magaya Old Students Association (MOSA) for reaching out to former students and others for support. "I am make this special appeal especially this festive season, for us to have a roof for our school children. The rains are here and we all have to do all we can to run the last mile. This is a call to all, the world over to join hands with us in reaching our goal". Ms Gumbonzvanda serves as the Patron of Magaya Old Students Association.
