What We Have Accomplished Together In 2020 : Pre-school Program Progress
By Thelma SITHOLE | Project Leader
Kids At The Pre-school Wearing New Uniforms
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you for supporting our pre-school program. We firmly believe that children who receive the best start in life are more likely to succeed in school and to end up as productive members of society. Sadly due to poverty and lack of resources the majority of children in the rural areas of Chipinge in Zimbabwe are still being denied the right to reach their full potential. Unlike the urban areas where children have access to high quality early childhood development and learning programs such programs are either non-existent or not as effective in the rural areas due to lack of resources.
Your donations make it possible for the Tekeshe Foundation to continue to provide high quality early childhood education to rural kids. We are committed to providing the best start in life to children in these rural areas. A typical day at the pre-school includes structured playtime, story time, games, singing and playing with all kinds of toys including educational toys. The children's favorite time is when they get to play with toys and ride bikes. The toys and bikes were donated by New England Pentecostal Ministries and friends of the foundation in the US. The kids also get to play on swings and slides.
In Her Own Words By One Of The Parents
"Thank you for providing us this pre-school. Our kids are learning a lot! The teacher is very good and she is very kind. The kids are very fond of her. I am very happy that my kid is enrolled at the pre-school. There are so many kids in the village who want to attend this pre-school but they is limit to the number of kids they can enroll. ”
We are pleased to announce that we now have two teachers at the pre-school. We are also pleased to announce that we introduced a new uniform at the pre-school. As you can see in the attached pictures the kids look very nice in the new uniforms!
Introduce basic computer skills training
Construction of the youth center that will house our pre-school will commence in early April
Thanks again for the major role you are playing in shaping the minds of the little ones in these rural areas. Without your support this would not have been possible.
