Bringing Cheer to the Maraposa Community
In a bid to improve pass rates in rural areas and contribute towards the improvement of the Zimbabwean education system, Inspire Women, Men and Children has partnered with Collin Nyabadza Children’s Voice Charitable Trust and donated books to Maraposa Primary School and Mahlotova Secondary School.
Rural schools are usually rated as low performing schools and this has been attributed to the lack of motivation and resources and we hope that these books will improve the learning of children at the two beneficiary schools.
Handing over the books, the Chairman of Inspire Women, Men and Childrenm Mr Joel Pambano Ndebele highlighted that his organisation will continue to do its best in terms of improving the lives of rural individuals and ensuring that they access the same resources and opportunities as those in the urban areas.
“Education shapes our society and we pledge to ensure that we make Umguza an educated district that will break barriers and do great things for the nation. These books should be a way of motivation to our children and they should read and work hard so that they have a bright future,” said Mr Ndebele.
He added that it was the mission of his organisation to address social problems through promoting and empowering women, men and children by improving their skills and knowledge. The books had come to improve the knowledge amongst children.
Mr Ndebele appreciated the partnership with Collin Nyabadza Children’s Voice Charitable Trust and noted how much of a relief it was to have partners with the same interests and goals of improving the lives of the less privileged members of the society.
Receiving school children could not seem to hide their joy upon seeing the books as it was clear that the books were going to relieve some of the pressures of studying.
Meanwhile, Nozizwe Mother of Nations Trust has also donated clothes to the Maraposa community in Umguza to assist in clothing the less privileged.
“As Inspire Women, Men and Children, we are grateful to Nozizwe Mother of Nations Trust for ensuring that the dignity of the Maraposa community is not compromised and that they are comfortable,” said Mr Ndebele.
He highlighted that being clothed was as essential as any other thing as clothes provide a hygienic barrier, keep infectious and toxic materials away from the body and protect people from the shame of being naked.
Inspire Women, Men and Children appreciates the partnerships with Collin Nyabadza Children’s Voice Charitable Trust and Nozizwe Mother of Nations Trust for the development of the community of Umguza.
