The Ngonyama Feeding Scheme near Bulawayo, is feeding upwards of 200 children one good meal a week. They attend a school nearby (when it is operating) but most come from homes where they are unable to eat regularly as a consequence of the situation. This meal provides them with the basic sustenance they need to keep going week by week in really challenging circumstances.
We also support the Ngonyama School, helping them to develop a school garden in which all students are taught the basics of farming using simple and effective methods. We have also repaired their entire electrical system and have introduced a system of self-help in which the parents are able to work off their unpaid school levies by assisting in maintenance work at the school. For example, the repair of desks and chairs, the making of school uniforms, the repainting of the school, the building of a new playground. We have also provided funding for the school fees of the 92 orphans at the school.
ZAWT has provided funds for the building of 2 new classrooms. The process is underway now which will relieve the already crowded school, and we hope that the project will be completed in the New Year.
This work is very well received and is proving to be very effective.
