Glad to be back on campus for Term 1

Greetings from USAP Community School!

We are writing as we complete our first month back physically at our campus in Goromonzi!  Schools resumed in March 2021 for the first term as the government relaxed lockdown restrictions in Zimbabwe.  We welcomed all of the students back on campus and everyone has settled in comfortably. 

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. There are joined by four more refugee students in the second class. This brings our total to 7 students from our population of 70 overall, or 10% of our student body coming from the Tongogara Refugee Camp.

The TWEENS (Together We Educationally Empower Non-priviledged Students), the initiave started by our students at Tongogara Refugee Camp became even more useful as students in the camp were not going to school and depended on the tutoring provided by our students and peers.  The initiative continues to source books and materials from Embassies and recently from the Naledi Foundation which supports girls education at the camp. We are proud of the TWEENS initiative and continue to support them in their service to youth at the camp.

As always, we are grateful to all of you for supporting the transformation of lives of refugee students through the USAP Community School and Education Matters Africa Foundation initiatives.

 

Best regards from all of us at Education Matters and USAP Community School!
