Lets Bring The Smile To Magaya Primary Kids

To The Friend Of Magaya Primary

"Education is the backbone of community development, it brings innovation, it brings the resources and it restores and amplifies the voices of the community to demand for their rights'" the words from the Chairperson of Magaya Primary School Mrs Patricia Dzotso when we met in March 2016 to review progress on the construction of two classroom blocks at the school. In 2013 we started an important journey with you, the journey of constructing two classroom blocks with a total of four classes and four inside offices. With your contributions we have travelled the longest part of the journey. All the classrooms blocks are now complete with the only work remaining being flooring, inside plastering, painting and glazing.

As we celebrate this milestone, we remain touched, in their incomplete state the classrooms are already being used by grade Zeros and the grade Ones (1) students as the school has acute shortage of learning space. Mrs Wachipa the school head at the briefing meeting indicated that they were left with no option but to start using the classrooms in their incomplete state as the school lacks the financial resources to complement the effort of Rozaria Memorial Trust and its partners. The school enrolment has gone down in the past years thereby greatly affecting the cash-flow at the school and the problem is further worsened by the fact that the remaining students are failing to pay their school fees. She said “We are pleading with friends and other development partners that they join hands with us to see us complete this journey, it pains that we are stuck at the very end. Let’s bring a smile to the faces of these kids'.

The Treasurer of Magaya School Development Committee, Mr Chamunorwa Njenje highlighted that for the completion of the journey to be a reality, the school needs US2500,00 to cater for cement and labour costs for flooring, painting and glazing.

It is important to complete this journey as we strive to provide the best learning environment for the students at Magaya Primary School, with this in mind we continue to look for your helping hand to make this come to fruition. We have moved the longest miles of journey together and we will be happy to have you with us until we reach the finishing line. Let’s bring the smile to Magaya Primary School kids.

Menstrual Health The Right of Every Girl

Dear Rozaria Memorial Trust Partner

Adolescents stage brings a major whole some change to the Sexual and Reproductive Health for girls, with them starting to experience their menses. This chanje of nature bring with its own challenges to the rural girls who are hardly able to access proper sanitary wear and menstrual hygiene information because of the taboos that are associated with the subject. In light of this and the experiences of working with girls through Rozaria Girls Clubs, we started a project in December 2015 titled "Menstrual Hygiene Kits-5 Rural Schools in Murewa."

Through you generous support we have managd to raise a about $350 to date. With this amount, we are going to procure a quartely supply for the 100 Orphans and other Vulnerable Girls girls with each girl getting three packs which will be able take them through for the whole of School Term 2. The girls will be selected from five Secondary Schools that are Magaya, Hurungwe, Kambarami, Chemapango and Chipinda Secondary School.Each school will have 20 beneficiaries for a start and it is anticipated the number will be gradually increased towards the target of 500 girls if more financial resources are secured.

In the period running from January to March 2016, through the school based Rozaria Girls Clubs Mentors about 600 girls were reached with menstrual hygiene educational information. The focus has been mainly to the form ones (1) who are starting to experience their periods so the need for them to appreciate more of the menstrual devevelopments in their bodies and the hygiene which they need to practise for their own comfort and of their peers at school. In addition, they are encouraged to have a responsible behaviour sexually as the menses signifies the beginning of the capacity of girls system to get pregnancy.

We look into the future with a lot of optisism that we are going to reach our goal by the year end of 2016 of supporting 500 girls with a monthly menstrual hygiene kits and to reach more than 2000 girls with menstrual helth information and other related Sexual and Reproductive Health issues that include unwanted pregnancies and Sexual Transmitted diseases.

Your continued support and referrals is important as we travel together in this journey. With your support the girls will have a safe menstrual health that builds their confidence and self esteem at school, improve in school perfomance and school attendance and it ensures the girls are saved from using unhygienic products that include cloth and newspapers in the rural communitities.

These Kids Already Using the Unfinished Classrooms

Magaya Primary School Learners
Magaya Primary School Learners

The student of Magaya school have spent the last years following the construction of their classroom blocks, from foundation to near completion. When roofed, the teachers decided that even without floors, painting and decent furniture, the kids had to move in and use these class rooms. Hard decision but what options did they have.

This christmas, help us to give a surprise to these kids. We simply want to ensure that come January, rainy season for that matter, the kids will enter fully habitable, warm and completed classrooms with window panes, decent floor, plastered and painted in welcoming colours. We can make this dream come true.

Thank you for your generosity. Kindly DONATE or share with your networks. Every action counts, and no gift is a small gift.
