Providing The Best Start In Life To Preschool Kids

By Thelma Sithole | Project Leader

New Preschool Building
New Preschool Building
Thank you very much for your continued support of our Education Project. The vision of this project is to use education to unlock doors of opportunity for disadvantaged rural kids to get them out of poverty. This project also aims to provide the best start in life to preschool children in these rural areas.These are some of the benefits of early childhood education:
  • Children learn skills such as, cooperating, persevering, sharing, teamwork and resilience. It is crucial for kids to learn these skills at an early age.
  • Children build their social skills at an early age.
  • Children develop self-esteem and confidence at an early age.
  • Good values such as respect and honesty are inculcated at an early age.
  • Children who complete preschool programs are more advanced in literacy, creativity, initiative, and social skills and they 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 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.
 
As you can you see in the attached pictures, the pre-school program is doing very well. 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. This year we purchased more playground equipment from South Africa.
 
As you can see in the attached pictures, the kids are having a good time. This is what one of the teachers had to say:
 
In their Own Words By One Of The Teachers
"Thanks for the play center toys and the bikes! The kids are having a good time. They dont want to go home; they want to stay at the preschool riding the bikes and playing with the toys"
 
Pre-school Building Project Update
We are pleased to announce that the classrooms are ready. As you can see in the attached pictures, the lessons are now being conducted in the new classrooms. What's left is to complete the teachers' offices, library and toilets. We are also in need of children's books, furniture and educational toys.
 
As you can see, we have accomplished a lot together! We couldn’t have done it without your help. Thanks again for all your support!
Best wishes,
Thelma
