The term started on a bleak note for vulnerable children with the reports that the government is failing to pay for close to a million students under its Basic Education Assistance Module http://www.herald.co.zw/school-1-million-pupils-priced-out/. This is indeed a very sad development in the struggle to empower the girl child through education.
Fortunately for the students we support we have managed to put a smile on their faces in a time of desperation for most. Thanks for your support, we could not have started the year any better.
With your support, we have managed to achieve the following.
- Paying up school fees for our beneficiaries
- That’s not all, they received a consignment of assorted supplies that included all their stationery requirements and sanitary ware.
- As if that is not enough we have managed to buy new school uniforms including shoes for each and every one of our beneficiaries.
- Our marimba, which were now in a state of disrepair have been mended and are now as good as new.
The ball is rolling
With the major challenges having been dealt with, we are well on course to write another successful chapter for Tariro. All our beneficiaries will not miss a day of school due to lack of fees and/or supplies. Our dance ensemble is poised for greater heights this year as they are going to have enough and uninterrupted practice. Again, our sincerest gratitude goes out to you our supporters for ensuring that our programme runs smoothly.
