Highlights Of What We Accomplished Together-2023

By Thelma Sithole | Project Leader

The problem is clear. Due to poverty and lack of resources the majority of children in the rural areas of 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. 

Our vision for this project is to provide high quality early childhood education to rural kids. 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.

In keeping with this vision we offer high quality early childhood education through our Beautiful Beginnings preschool. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you for making this work possible. A big thank you to New England Pentecostal Ministries and friends of the foundation who donated the preschool furniture you see in these pictures and for helping us with the funds to ship the items to Zimbabwe. 

Highlights Of Our Organization’s 2023 Accomplishments

1. Official Opening of Our Beautiful Beginnings Preschool

The grand opening ceremony of the Beautiful Beginnings Preschool marked a momentous occasion, bringing together parents, educators, community leaders, and little ones to celebrate the commencement of a new era in early childhood education. Held on December16, 2023 at our state-of-the-art facility, the event was filled with joy, excitement, and anticipation for the wonderful journey ahead. 

The preschool opening event was not just a celebration for the school community but also a platform to foster meaningful connections with the broader community. Local leaders, Pastors from different churches, dignitaries, and representatives from neighboring schools joined us in commemorating this significant milestone, reaffirming our commitment to collaborative partnerships and community involvement.

The event commenced with the Master of Ceremony, Mr Mundeta giving a warm welcome, followed by the preschool Director, Mrs Gata welcoming the distinguished guests including the guest of honor, Mr Gabaza, the Provincial Education Director from the Ministry of Education of Zimbabwe. Then Reverend Thabete gave a charge to the youth to take on the burden of making a difference in their communities.

The day was filled with a variety of activities. The preschool's budding talents gave an enchanting performance. The children's enthusiasm and creativity set the stage for a delightful day filled with various activities and programs designed to engage both children and parents alike.The activities ranged from Cultural Dances by students from Mbeure and Rimbi Primary School, entertainment by our Scouts, Preschool kids receiving toys, Ribbon Cutting Ceremony by Mr Gabaza & Chief Rimbi to Parents and guests being treated to guided tours of the preschool's facilities.

At around 1:00 pm lunch was served. While people enjoyed their lunch, the vibrant sounds of drums and traditional music filled the air as students from Mbeure & Rimbi Primary Schools provided entertainment. As the day drew to a close, hearts were filled with gratitude and optimism for the promising journey ahead. The preschool opening event was an overwhelming success! It served as a testament to our unwavering dedication to providing children with a nurturing and stimulating environment where they can thrive, learn, and discover the joy of learning every day.

2. We provided schools fees to 51 students; 28 High School students,  20 Primary level students and 3 college level students. We also gave school supplies to over 60 students. 

3. We provided uniforms to 75 scouts and we also sponsored them to attend camping events

Thank you so much for what we have accomplished together inorder to reach this milestone! We couldnt have done this without your support.

Best wishes,

Thelma
