WEFA is committing to educate children in Lupane and surrounding villages.
Our aim is to send a minimum of 10 new girls to primary school every year. Education is not free in Zimbabwe. One year of primary school in a bush school costs approximately $100 per child, not to mention the cost of school uniforms and stationery.
The United Nations states that “Education is a fundamental human right. It promotes individual freedom and empowerment and yields important development benefits. Yet millions of children and adults remain deprived of educational opportunities, many as a result of poverty.”
One side effect of providing boreholes to these rural communities is that many women and children are freed from the onerous task of collect water every day. This means that many children will now have the time to attend school, but not necessarily the money to afford it. With your help, we will make education available to as many young girls as possible.
