The Forum for African Women Educationalists Zimbabwe (FAWEZI) is excited to share that our first beneficiary of the Global Giving Funds Grace Chirume is seating for the National Examinations this October.

 She will be writing the following 8 subjects: English Language, English Literature, History, Geography, Shona, Science, Commerce, and Mathematics.

We have confidence in her as she has achieved pleasing results since her enrolment early this year. As a teen mom she has managed to balance school and taking care of her daughter and mother who is of ill health because of the Non-Formal  Education programme.

 As shared in our previous report FAWEZI has also selected a second batch of beneficiaries whom we have given a second chance at education and these will be seating for the public examinations in 2018.

All our beneficiaries received tuition fees, uniforms, stationary and sanitary wear-Thank you for making this possible.

One other pleasing thing is that due to the continued support of you our donors we are working on enrolling another group of out of school girls and give them an opportunity to attain a basic education.

 FAWEZI believes that not all hope is lost for the teen moms and other out of school girls in the Epworth-Mabvuku-Tafara District as we will continue to request your support in taking them back into the classroom.

With your continued support FAWEZI intends to take all these girls up to tertiary level so that they become citizens who are able to contribute positively to the development of their country.

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.

We are grateful to have you on board.

From all of us at FAWEZI, thank you

Gearing up to fund a new school

FAWEZI is excited to begin funding the construction of a classroom block for primary school children in Chechiri. Chechiri is a fairly new resettlement area. The area is far away from social amenities like hospitals, schools and shops. FAWEZI hopes that this project will avail a safer and conducive learning environment for the children. Currently, the nearest school to the area is East Range Primary, which 7km away followed by Pfupi Primary, which is 8.9 km away. Roads in-between are bushy and infested with snakes thus dangerous for kids. FAWEZI thinks this project is of the upmost importance, unfortunately we are not quite prepared to begin the large scale funding of it necessary with the other programmes we have going on. We are therefore putting the project on hold but hoping to mobilise and reactivate it on global giving with a bang in the coming months, stay tuned!

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.
