Happy Holidays - Increasing Refugee Success!

Happy Holidays!

What a year it has been!  Despite all of the challenges, we have made great strides in our work impacting refugee students from Tongogara Refugee Camp in Eastern Zimbabwe.  Matson, a USAPer originally from DRC is off to Huron University in Canada in a week on a full Presidential scholarship.  Prince is similarly off to start his journey at UWC Waterford in Eswatini. 

The three students from the camp who are part of our initial USAP Community School class move into their second and last A level year.  They will be joined by four more refugee students starting in January in the second class.  This brings our total to 7 refugee students from our population of 70 overall, or 10% of our student body!

TWEENS (Together We Educationally Empower Non-Privileged Students), the initiative started by our students in camp, continues to provide tutoring and encouragement and counseling to students on the verge of dropping out of school in the refugee camp. They also have sourced books from Embassies and individuals to donate to the camp's library, school and for their own tutoring.  We are proud of what they have accomplished and the inspiration they are to other refugee youth.

None of this would have been possible without your support.  We thank you for continuing to support our intiiative to transform lives of refugee students through USAP Community School and Education Matters initiatives.  Thank you!

Wishing you all joy during this holiday season and may we leap into what we hope will be a better 2021!

Best from all of us at Education Matters and USAP Commuity School,

Rebecca
