School Fees for 40 Young Girls in Zimbabwe

Mid-year Report

It is now winter in Zimbabwe, with cold nights and clear warm days. In Mutare where we fund the girls school fees, it is even colder because the elevation is over 5000 ft. So even though it is in the tropical zone, the altitude is a major issue.  With that said, the girls we funded this year are all doing well in school and wearing sweaters. They do appreciate the opportunity to attend school and in this case a decent school.

Someone asked why we don't fund 40 girls each year. Well the simple aswer is that we fund the school fees of as many girls as we have funds for. So the amount that we raise during this year for that project is what we will have to spend on the next year.  It seems like such a small amount of money that can alter the path of a young woman and change her life.  So when you make that donation remember you are helping a young woman take the road to a better life. She thanks you and we thank you.
