Please can you help the children in Sekgoma Primary School
Sekgoma Primary School is located in our neighborhood. For here it’s a big school with almost 700 children aged between six and sixteen. It’s a government run school and the pupils come from all over Maun and from all sorts of families. Many of the children come from homes with no running water and no electricity. Money is scarce, life can be harsh and education is often the only way out.
The school does it’s best for the children but funding is tight and supplies are limited.
In 2018 Safari Destinations began supporting Sekgoma School. We provide help with IT issues, set up their wifi and brought them printers. We sponsor their prize giving initiative for pupils that excel in academic terms, in personal development and for individual achievements.
Our support will continue and build.
Chisuma is a village 25km east of the majestic Victoria Falls with a population of about 2500 to 4000 villagers. Education in Chisuma Village is generally good with most people being able to read, write, and speak English. The school offers classes from grades 1 through 7 and benefits about 400 students from ages 6 through 13 years old. More recently, the school began offering a pre-school class.
One of Gogo Olive’s main goals is to give ladies in the community the opportunity to earn a living wage. They also provide the ladies with training in budgeting skills. They use Savings Schemes to make their money go further each month. Zimbabwe has a particularly unpredictable financial situation and job employment is low so this is a great solution for the Gogo’s and their families who benefit.
- In addition to a long term funding commitment from us the schools benefit from the equipment brought in by you.
- This may be the first investment anyone has made in these women's lives.
