Zimbabwean News You Can Trust

Underprivileged communities remain on the losing end especially as the country battles a debilitating economic meltdown and most of these forgotten communities bear the brunt of the suffering leading to early child marriages, school drop outs, and drug abuse among children.

The situation is dire in remote rural areas, where families struggle to pay tuition fees and provide stationery for their children’s educational needs.

However, a local Non Governmental Organization, Tinovimba Trust, left people in the Nyaminyami district of Kariba with smiles as the organization has taken it upon itself to help make the situation better for the community by uplifting the lives of marginalized children in the area.

On Thursday this week, Tinovimba Trust donated Pencils, exercise books, pens and clothes to  several disadvantaged children in the area, with the aim of helping them in their educational journey.

Addressing journalists after donating various goods, stationery and clothes to underprivileged children of Malembeja and Negande Primary Schools, Tinovimba Trust CEO, Mrs. Chenai Siachakanzwa, urged the beneficiaries to use the donation wisely and take their education seriously.

She added that her organization would soon venture into sponsoring sporting activities, so as to give underpriviledged children the opportunity to access scholarships.

“I grew up in this area, so my wish is to help the less privileged acquire education without hindrance. As an organization, we have come with little donations. We hope we will include sporting activities next time, so that our children acquire scholarships to travel abroad. I would like to advise the kids that with this donation, they should take their studies seriously,” said Siachakanzwa.

Speaking at the event, Chief Negande’s wife commended Tinovimba Trust’s and thanked the oraganization for the donations, expressing her happiness on behalf of the community, adding that she the organization continues to grow, so that it can help the commmunity address other pressing needs faced by the underprivileged.

“I’m proud of these donations, this is a noble gesture to all of us in the community. I think if their organization grows big, they should address other issues like paying tuition fees and providing food, because people are suffering here,” she said.

Tinovimba Trust also held another special program called “spelling bee”, which focused on improving the children’s English speaking skills. The competition featured five local schools, both schoos primary and secondary.

The winners of the spelling bee competition walked away with gold, bronze, and silver medals. They also received exercise books, pens, pencils as well as T/shirts.

Awarding the winners, Mrs Siachakanzwa said, “We decided to come with this spelling Bee program to our Kariba community because it is out there, but to our district it was not yet available, so we are working on it so that we enhance our children’s English speaking and writing skills.”
