Education delivery in Zimbabwe's rural communities has all but disintegrated and experts warn that any gains made after independence are rapidly being reversed in the continuing economic meltdown. As basic commodities become more unaffordable by the day, rural parents, who mostly depend on farming, are also feeling the pinch: they can hardly afford the school fees for their children.
In the past five years, Zimbabwe has suffered erratic rainfall, flash floods and long dry spells. Erratic weather has caused major losses for the small-scale farmers, who mostly grow maize. Many families' food supply has been severely depleted. Schoolchildren are bearing the brunt of the shortages ,Over 80 % of the school dropouts are girls." World Vision similarly states that the impacts of drought on children include "early marriage and child labour".
The project will support children's and pupils who are having financial challenges, this act will make sure they is continuity of education to the pupils despite them having financial challenges. The program will target Orphans and Vulnerable children with Goromonzi District, this program will see the decrease in the number of drop-out, a decline in the early marriages and a decline in forced marriages to the girl child. The program will also make sure every child has proper national documents.
The project will educate about 400 children both girls and boys, this will bring equality in terms of development within the community there by eradicating poverty within the communities. Basic education to every child will be accomplished, the building of ECD block classes will see the continuation of education services with the communities. The children who will be registered for national particulars will be able to participate in the national affairs and enrolled in any institution.
