Summary

The funds will help less privileged children in Zimbabwe have access to education through payment of school fees and sanitary pads support for less privileged school girls. Millions of children in Zimbabwe are excluded from school every year mainly due to failure to pay fees. Of those who finish primary only 47% proceed to secondary school and this is all because of poverty which makes it difficult to pay school fees. Education is a basic human right which everyone should have access even poor

MASVINGO, MATEBELELAND AND MIDLANDS PROVINCES ARE THE WORST AFFECTED.
