2015 Pre-school Progress Update

By Thelma Sithole | Project Leader

Children At Our Pre-School
Children At Our Pre-School

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you for your continued support of our pre-school program. This program is at the heart of our organization and is our strategy for providing the best start in life to children in these rural areas.


Research has found out that children who complete pre-school 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 the majority of children in the rural areas of Chipinge in Zimbabwe have no access to early childhood development and learning programs. Through your donations we are able to enroll 30 children in our pre-school. Our goal is to increase the number to 90 in 2016.

 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 the toys and ride bikes. The toys and bikes were donated by New England Pentecostal ministries and friends of the Foundation in the US. Every year we partner with churches in New England to send a 40 foot container of medicines, food and clothing, school supplies and toys to Zimbabwe.

 Though the program is a big success we still have many needs. The following are our goals for 2016

•  Increase the number of children enrolled in our school to 90
•  Hire two additional teachers.
•  Provide a building which will be able to accommodate 90 kids.
•  Provide tables and chairs, currently the kids sit on the floor.
•  Add an outdoor play area with swings

I am pleased to announce that we will begin building the new pre-school facility in January 2016. 

Thank you for helping these little ones have the best start in life! May your hearts be filled with lots of joy and laughter this holiday season as you reflect on the difference you are making in the lives of these children. 

I wish you a very happy Christmas and a prosperous 2016!

Best wishes,

Thelma
