Project Details


  • Project Description:

    Every child deserves the right to an education.  Children in rural Zimbabwe do poorly in school when they lack the equipment required for school attendance --- like paper.  This project provides composition books to disadvantaged and vulnerable students. One of the schools assisted by this project moved from 40th to eighth place in the district on exam performance. The covers of these books tell a cultural story that teaches a salvation message.

    In rural Zimbabwe, two-thirds of school children have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS. Extended families or caregivers are too poor to provide children with the composition books required by the school system. Without the books, children must sit on the floor and write their lessons in the dust. Some schools have no exercise books whatsoever.  In other schools the children have just one book which they use for all subjects. 

    This project provides free notebooks to school children. The books also have the message of salvation, and True Love Waits. These notebooks open the door for countless contacts and opportunities to share the Gospel.  Volunteers can visit the schools and share testimonies, conduct True Love Waits Rallies and distribute the exercise books.  

    The program is being extended to 200 schools, providing 300,000 exercise books and touching the lives of some 200,000 students and teachers.

  • Cultural Information:

    The people of Zimbabwe are friendly, cheerful, and courteous. Most are very friendly when seeing friends on the street, but with strangers it is the complete opposite; very cautious. It is impolite to embarrass someone in public. Family relations are very important. Zimbabweans tend to spend money quickly and not look towards future needs. They call this “living for today.”

  • Geographic Information:

    Zimbabwe is a landlocked country located in the southern part of the African continent. Zimbabwe has three official languages, English, Shona and Ndebele.

Pray


Pray for this project to be able to provide enough composition books for families who are affected by AIDS. These books will meet the necessary guidelines for these children to go to school. This project has been so successful in one school which went from being ranked 40th in the district to 8th. Pray that more books will be provided so more children will be able to learn.
