Project Put on Hold

Thank you for your support for ASAP’s Vocational Training Project.  As some of you know, the political situation in Zimbabwe is very tenuous right now with presidential elections on the horizon.  Organizations like ASAP, working to help families survive in the rural areas are being harassed.  During the 2008 election all organizations were forced to close and meetings of more than 3 people were not allowed. <> 

The situation in 2012 is again unpredictable and as a precaution, ASAP will change its approach on the ground and only focus on school fees to keep girls in school.  These project funds will therefore be redirected to support ASAP’s School Fees for Girls Project. Your understanding and support to help children during this time of great need in Zimbabwe is greatly appreciated.
