Three Refugee Students Graduate from USAPCS!

We are very excited to announce that three of the 45 students in our first cohort of USAP Community School to graduate last Saturday, December 4, were refugee students from Tongogara Refugee Camp.  Olive, Damascent and Chrinovic, who originate from Burundi and the DRC, did us proud as they graduated.  

We are also happy to continue our commitment to educating refugees by admitting three more refugee students from Burundi, Rwanda and the DRC, to the class that will begin at our school in 2022.  This will keep our current refugee population to 7 students which in January will be 11% of our school population.  It is your kind support that allows us to pay 100% of these students' school fees, uniforms, and other supplies needed for them to be fully equipped to learn at our school and in camp with resources like solar panels and batteries during lockdowns.

Two weeks ago we also launched the TWEENS Youth Centre in the camp, a place where young people will be able to get tutoring, read from a library and enjoy activities such as pingpong, darts, chess and other games.  We are proud of the USAP students and alumni who have made this centre happen and look forward to watch it develop and grow as a by youth for youth project

 

Thank you for helping us to continue to prioritize transformative education for refugees in Zimbabwe!
