Challenge

There is a growing challenge of out of school children in Zimbabwe and specifically in the Mbare community. This is as a result of protracted economic crisis in Zimbabwe which has existed for more than a decade now. The situation has been worsed by the impact of HIV/AIDS which has led to some children being orphaned. These macro challenges have led to households not affording school fees and some children due to death of parents have been found out of school.

Solution

The project will assist to ensure that children are send back to school and are assisted to at least acquire basic primary education. The money will be used to pay school fees, buy uniforms and stationery for the children who will be reintegrated into formal school in January 2017. The money will help children to be retained in school for at least a year.

Long-Term Impact

Education is the key to opportunities and unlocking potential in human beings. In investing in education the country benefits in having citizens who are better able to develop their nation thereby reducing poverty. It also reduces the exposure to immediate risks for children such as early marriages, unwanted pregnancies, drug and substance abuse and theft which are social ills. Literacy enables children to tap in the opportunities on the global market.
