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.

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.
From all of us here at FAWEZI -Thank you.

Gearing up for the EXAM term
By Nqobile Nkiwane - Information and Communications Officer
mentorship session with beneficiaries
Greetings to you all dear friends of FAWEZI. In our last report we celebrated the success of 3 beneficiaries who excelled in their National ‘O’ Level examinations. This time around we are happy to tell you that through your support we have managed to pay school fees and examination fees for 8 of our girls whore are currently in form 4 under Non Formal Education. FAWEZI is grateful for your support as these girls are so close to attaining a basic Zimbabwean education qualification. We are confident in their capabilities and can’t wait to be sharing their results come 2020. Besides these examination candidates we also paid school fees for the other 2 girls (one of which is a teen mom) who are in form 3 and will be writing ‘O’ Level examinations next year.
The organisation also bought sanitary pads for some of the girls and distributed them according to the intensity of the need .We look forward to supporting them further with sanitary pads and education on menstrual hygiene management. In line with the 2019 Menstrual Hygiene day (May 28) we will be meeting with our beneficiaries to discuss issues and answer questions surrounding menstruation so that we de - mystify the topic and reduce the risk of them missing or dropping out school due to lack of adequate and accurate information on menstruation and sanitary pads .
We have established that the financial support the girls are receiving coupled with the occasional visits and talks goes a long way in boosting their self- confidence resulting in improved performance at school.
FAWEZI is grateful to you our donors for your continued support, and we believe that we are making a difference to the future of Zimbabwean women one girl at a time. Let us continue to rebuild lives and restore hope!
