O ' level results slip
Greetings to you, dear friends of FAWEZI.
In our last report in 2019 we indicated that 8 of our beneficiaries sat for the final Ordinary level examinations. Amongst these were four teen mothers who had been attending school under the Non Formal Education. We are happy to share that the results are out and our girls performed fairly.
Of late the FAWEZI team has been visiting the girls to discuss with them on the best possible way forward depending on each one’s results. We have also managed to video record the experiences of the girls during their ‘O’ level journey. The girls are grateful for all the support rendered to them and some are appealing for more help so that they move on to Advanced level or tertiary institutions.
It is encouraging to note that those who attained less than the required five subjects to go ahead to Advanced level expressed interest to re do their Ordinary level. We have also taken up nine new beneficiaries and are hopeful that together we help them through their secondary school education.
In January 2020 FAWEZI initially picked up 6 girls who were at risk of dropping out of school. These were selected from our project schools but we have had many other girls being referred to us due to the amazing work that we have done with previous beneficiaries and our total is eleven.
Nine of our girls are in form 4 and will be seating for the final examination this year. We are currently working on paying their fees and also examination fees as the registration is done during this first term. FAWEZI and the girls are forever grateful for your unwavering support rendered.
We really appreciate each and every one of your donations to this worthy cause. All the donations made on this platform make a significant impact in the lives of these girls and young mothers.It has always been our desire to give them a basic qualification which we believe will open better opportunities for the girls in terms of employability and economic independence.
As FAWEZI continues to lookout for any relevant opportunities or applications for those that made it in the final exams we encourage you our dear friends to keep on donating to this worthy cause.
From all of us here at FAWEZI – Thank you.

End of Year for our Beneficiaries
By J. Shirley - Information Officer
Greetings! Thank you once again for the support you continue to show us. With the economic situation in Zimbabwe, our girls and young women need the help now more than ever. Following our last report, in which we gave you an update on our beneficiaries focusing on the final term of 2019, we are excited to update you about this term and look forward towards 2020.
Eight beneficiaries recently sat for their final Ordinary Level examinations! They wrote between six to ten subjects each. We are all eagerly awaiting the results of these examinations. As always, we are in contact with all the girls and young women to provide resources and support in studying and mentoring. We have also been in touch with the school administrators to ensure that records are up to date and the girls and young women who are finishing up their year will be able to do so stress-free. In the last few months FAWEZI has finalized all payments for 2019 and we have collected receipts for the year. FAWEZI is also always on the lookout for any relevant opportunities or applications we may send our graduates’ way for them to consider after ‘O’ Level. If our funds permit, FAWEZI envisions also taking some of the girls further into Advanced Level and Tertiary Level once the ‘O’ Level results have come back. Unfortunately, FAWEZI was not able to host in-person career guidance sessions this period due to a lack of time and beneficiaries writing exams. But we are looking forward to starting these again in the new year. We strongly believe in buttressing the financial support we are giving to the girls with occasional visits and mentorship sessions so that we deliver holistic support to our beneficiaries. FAWEZI and the teen moms are forever grateful for your unwavering support. As the holidays approach please consider donating again, Global Giving donations are tax deductible and you can make donations in others’ names. This is also an excellent time to start a small, $10/month recurring donation. Recurring donations help us plan and Global Giving is offering matching funds on monthly donations. Thank you in helping us make a positive impact on the lives of our disadvantaged girls. From all of us here at FAWEZI -Thank you.

The Final Examination term is here!

Motivational Talk session
Following our last report in which we gave you an update on our beneficiaries focusing on the progress made in the payment of school fees and examinations we are happy to say our beneficiaries are ready for the third and final term of 2019.
Eight of the girls will be seating for their final Ordinary Level examinations writing between six to ten subjects each. FAWEZI has been recently focusing on these girls making sure they give themselves time to study outside the classroom while also engaging them in motivational talks to boost their self-esteem.
FAWEZI representatives have also been visiting Domboramwari School to check if all the girls’ ‘financial records are up to date so as to avoid inconveniences especially during examination period since one cannot smoothly seat for the examinations without full payment and clearance of statements of school fees payments .
While the girls prepare for the final examinations FAWEZI is again now on the lookout for any relevant opportunities or applications we may send their way for them to consider after ‘O’ Level. If our funds permit FAWEZI envisions taking some of the girls further into Advanced Level and Tertiary Level.
Career guidance sessions are also in the pipeline and will be rolled out once the third term opens on the 10th of September 2019. We continue to buttress the financial support we are giving to the girls with occasional visits and mentorship sessions so that we deliver holistic support to our beneficiaries.
FAWEZI and the teen moms continue to be grateful for your unwavering support and also continue to implore that you keep on supporting us in making a positive impact on the lives of our disadvantaged girls.
