School Fees for 40 Young Girls in Zimbabwe

August Winds

The third term of school begins shortly In Zimbabwe, the days are starting to get a little warmer after the short winter season and the August winds begin to blow.  This is the term when crops are planted but not usually until October.  Students return to class, including the girls that are funded by ASAP and your generous donations.  They all know that there will be work in the fields later in the year; first preparing to plant and then actual planting crops. 


But first it’s time to work hard studying and learning in class.  This third term is important because of the end of year exams that come around to decide who goes on to the next grade.  There are also the big exams for the fourth year students to decide who will qualify for grade 5 and 6, which are required to qualify for university.  So this is a much more serious term and involves a lot of hard work on the their part. 


At the end of this year, the girls are selected that will be funded for the next year.  Girls are chosen that are serious about their classes and do not have the ability to pay the whole amount of the school fees. Besides the learning aspects of school, these girls also enjoy the comradeship of their fellow students and the improved safety of the school environment where there is a much lower chance of getting pregnant or contracting HIV. 


Thank you for donating what you can for this cause.  The amount you give may not be a big deal for you.  But to help a young girl serious about learning, with her school fees, is a really big deal to her!
