In Zimbabwe H.E.L.P. Zimbabwe has had a few positive developments as follows:
New school: We were offered a complete but disused school at Chirima near Maraire, 20km south of Chatsworth, by the community leaders. The location has classrooms, staff houses, a borehole and a mains supply of electricity. We are very excited about the prospect and after several consultations, the general view is that the school should be used for training school leavers on vocational courses. We are already moving some of our projects to the new school .
Of particular interest is the woodwork project. Our project partner has started moving some of the operations to the school and we anticipated that the whole project will be based at Chirima by September 2010. In January 2011 the first trainees will start the course. We are looking for volunteers who can teach any aspect of woodwork at adult level. We are also appealing for any woodworking tools of any description. If you would like to have a list of the required tools, please Email us and we will send it to you.
Other projects include Jam making, well digging, dress making, Market gardening, bakery, etc.
