The idea

In October 2017, we decided to build an elementary school to serve four remote villages in Zimbabwe. The villages are located approximately 18 miles outside of Guruve, a small town in the northern part of the country. The next school is far away. Especially for the young children the distance is too far to walk.In this region, there is no running water or electricity. The people mainly live from farming, covering their own needs, but the droughts of the past years have made the living conditions more and more difficult. The poverty in this country, for years challenged by political as well as economic uncertainty, continues to rise.
The potential of Zimbabwe lays in its children. Wit a school project, we can make it possible for the children to get the education they deserve. Only with such education, will they be able to recognize and take advantage of opportunities in their lives.

The Manyon'onya infant school

The Manyon’onya infant school opened in January 2018. Today, there are approximately 190 children attending daily, accommodated in three Pre-classes and one 1st grade and 2nd grade class. The goal is to offer education to all infants in the region. But currently, we don‘t have enough space to accommodate all pupils. We are currently focusing on raising funds for additional school buildings and furniture. The bricks are being produced by the villagers.

As teenagers, the pupils are changing to secondary school, where they can graduate with various degrees. The parents have to pay tuition fees for their kids.
