Dear Friends of FAWEZI,

As promised in our last report, the Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWEZI) has begun the enrolment process for three other beneficiaries at Domboramwari High School. The girls will be starting form 3 early June and it is the organisation’s intention to keep on raising funds for them until tertiary level. These girls have been selected from the Epworth Mabvuku Tafara District which has a high number of economically challenged households and child headed families. Once again thank you to our supporters; it is you who have made this possible!

Two of the girls are joining the school under the Non-Formal Education Scheme — Nyengeterai and Angeline  — while one is joining the main stream education — Nomsa.

Nyengeterai and Angeline are 18 and 24 respectively and grew up in Epworth. Their father is still in college and not yet working and their mother has been unable to find work, resulting in their dropping out of school. With FAWEZI support they are starting school this coming month. Nyengeterai hopes that finishing school will help her pursue a career in travel and tourism, and one day become an air hostess. Likewise, Angeline wants to go into the travel and tourism industry but is more interested in the management side of things.

Nomsa is 15 and was raised by her single mother who paid her school feels until she was in form 2 and money became too tight. She is excited to return to school and 'plans to work hard to eventually become a nurse'.

Kindly consider donating again so that we continue achieving our goal of changing the lives of disadvantaged girls who dropped out of school due to pregnancy and financial challenges.

FAWEZI’s appeal for support on our ‘send 20 girls back to school’ project has been up on the Global Giving site for a year now and we are happy to have you on board — thank you. Also stay up to date on FAWEZI through Facebook here and at www.fawezi.org.

From all of us at FAWEZI, thank you.

School Re-entry for Girls on the Move!

The Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWEZI) has had a busy beginning of the year, all thanks to you for supporting our ‘send 20 girls back to school’ project throughout 2016. We are glad to notify you that we have started enrolling our selected beneficiaries into secondary school one at a time.

Our first beneficiary, a teen mom has started form 4 at Domboramwari High School in January under the Non Formal Education Programme(NFE). She will be writing National Ordinary level examinations this November. She will be writing the following 8 subjects: English Language, English Literature, History, Geography, Shona, Science, Commerce, and Mathematics. FAWEZI has paid school fees for this term January-April, bought school uniforms and stationery. Once again thank you to our supporters; it is you who have made this possible!

The NFE Policy was launched in 2015 by the Government of Zimbabwe to provide alternative pathways and widen access to education for various categories of learners such as young people and adults who had never attended school or had dropped out of school. Therefore, according to this policy, every school in Zimbabwe is a centre for learners who would want to access education through Non Formal means.

This NFE policy reaffirms Government’s commitment to increasing access to education for all Zimbabweans and facilitating the fulfillment of the learning needs and basic rights of all learners in line with the Constitution of Zimbabwe.

FAWEZI has also selected three more girls who will enroll by the end of March 2017. Two of the girls will be enrolled in form 2 mainstream classes at Epworth Secondary School. FAWEZI intends to support them up to O’ level. If funds permit, phase 2 of this project will raise resources to take them to Advanced level and further to tertiary education.

Our third beneficiary will be starting form 3 at the same school. These girls all dropped out of school because their parents and guardians could not afford paying their school fees.Currently FAWEZI is in the process of securing uniforms and stationery that will enable them to start school. Our girls were selected from the Epworth Mabvuku Tafara District which has a high number of economically challenged households and child headed families.  

We would also like to make a specific call for support during the  Global Giving Girl Fund Campaign  were you can help us  secure funding for the whole year by donating as little as $10.

Kindly consider donating again throughout the year so that we achieve our goal of changing the lives of disadvantaged girls who dropped out of school due to pregnancy and financial challenges.

FAWEZI’s appeal for support on our ‘send 20 girls back to school’ project has been  up on the Global Giving Site for a year now are happy to have you on board-Thank you. Also stay up to date on FAWEZI in general here and at www.fawezi.org.

From all of us at FAWEZI, thank you

Sending 20 Girls Back to School

Season’s greetings

 

Firstly, and most importantly, thank you for supporting our project to send twenty girls back to school, we appreciate all the input all of you have made so far.

 

The Zimbabwe chapter of the Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWEZI) is having a busy end of year as we prepare for our project start up in 2017.

 

Our ‘send 20 girls back to school’ project has proven to have great potential even though we still need more funds to achieve a great start.

 

 This project has been on the Global Giving site for nine months now and we are happy to have garnered your support.-Thank you.

 

 Times are hard but we are determined to continue to seek for means to raise money for the girls because we strongly believe they need a second chance.

 

FAWEZI has a greater vision than this, and with your continued support we wish to increase the number of our beneficiaries.

 

Amongst our three selected beneficiaries is a single teen mom, we understand that if we educate her she we would have made a positive impact on her baby too.

 

With your continued support FAWEZI intends to take the girls back school each one starting from the level in which they dropped out and also pay their examination fees.

 

 Our project was born in the Epworth Mabvuku Tafara District which has a high number of economically challenged households and child headed families.

 

 We intend to begin implementing our project in January 2017 after having further discussions with the beneficiaries and school authorities.

 

Kindly consider donating again during the 2016 Global Giving Year end campaign which is running up to December 31
