Mid January saw a new school year start in Zimbabwe. The well deserving girls that ASAP is assisting with their school fees have been selected. Their names and photos are below:

These girls all attend St. Dominic’s High School in Mutare, Zimbabwe where they get a very good education. You will notice that there are no fancy hairstyles allowed. The girls are strongly encouraged to focus on their studies with few distractions. Just by being in school gives these girls an advantage in life. They have much less chance of contracting AIDS and much greater chance of a better life. Your support is instrumental in making this happen. Thank you.
