As the third term of school finishes up In Zimbabwe, the weather is hot and the summer rains are falling erratically. The girls that are funded by ASAP and your generous donations are doing final exams before the summer holiday. This is the long school break that usually lasts for 6 weeks. This is when students go home to work in the fields so there will be food for the winter months.
So students in Zimbabwe will be excited when it comes time to return to school because they actually look forward to it. Yes, they have a much different attitude about returning to school each term than what you may find here in the western world. Returning to school means the fieldwork is over for them. Besides the learning aspects of school, these girls also enjoy the comradeship of their fellow students and the improved safety of the school environment. You see, there is a much lower chance of girls getting pregnant if they are in school.
All of us at ASAP Africa really appreciate all of your donations, large and small, to help these deserving girls stay in school. Please continue to give generously during this giving season.
