The New 2014 School Year

The school year begins in mid-January for all Zimbabweans.  Its mid summer, which means very hot and humid.  The economy in Zimbabwe is not doing well since there is a shortage of hard currency. Shops don’t have as much food and prices have gone up quite a lot. The government actually has plenty of income from the “blood diamond” fields near Mutare but most of it goes into the private coffers of the president and his men.  Yet Zimbabweans still say they have hope of things getting better. We hope so.

We are still waiting for the information from the school on the girls that may be assisted with their school fees. We help as many girls as we can each year, depending on the donations we receive.  This past year has been particularly quiet on the giving front for these girls.  So the number of girls assisted will depend on how much each needs.

Please make a contribution.  You can help one more girl stay in school and have a better future.
