Out of school children reading in class
Dear Friends and Partners,
We last spoke in November 2015, talking about children ready to go to formal school. I am always happy to bring updates because every time we ask, you respond. We were requesting for money to buy uniforms, books, pay school fees for those ready for formal school as well as maintaining classes in the out of school study group and you did it again. Thank you.
We finally managed to send the 21 children who were ready to go to formal school in January. We were anxious as the target seemed huge and impossible, but you made it easy for us. Thank you. Twenty-one children were enrolled at a local primary school. Thanks to the school head who accomodated all the children at his school. At least, they will support each other in their journey to attain basic education and shaping their future. Usually, there is fear among the children to go back to school after some years out of the school system, but reintegrating them in numbers especially in one school will easy the problem.
Our joy did not end with reintegration, the support you gave us helped us to enroll more children in the out of school classes hence more and more children are benefitting. This year we managed to enroll 50 new children in the out of school classes giving hope again to those who would have lost hope. I wish you would be able to visit us and see the great work you are doing.
Thank you very much. Kindly continue to suport this project, as the need is huge and we are only able to help a few at a time. We need money to buy food for children in the out of school classes, stationery, text books, furniture and pay school fees for those that are ready to go to school.
I invite you to like our facebook page; Chiedza Child Care Center and kindly help spread the word and invite your friends to like it too.
