One of the most recognised needs at Numwa School, and through the Southern African region in general, is the lack of sanitary wear for girls. Through donations brought by The Zimbabwe Gecko Society, and a partnership with Padding Africa, the sewing group at Numwa School are making reusable sanitary pads, and are now running a self-sustainable project. The Group is made up of rural women, together with teachers from Numwa School, who gather twice a week to meet the needs of the children at the school.
As always, community projects are constantly on the go. This month, the volunteers played a huge part in assisting with the development of the vegetable garden at Chizungu school, and educating the community members on permaculture. This is such a valuable project empowering women and children with long term sustainability skills.
Imire Rhino and Wildlife Conservation would like to express our gratitude to Steve Potter from Apple Crumble Macintosh Service and Support who so kindly donated an Apple Computer to our local Numwa School. This extremely generous donation was facilitated by one of our ex-volunteers, Rose Dunne. A very special women who volunteered at Imire last year and who has placed her care and concern for our Imire community at the forefront of her mind, we cannot thank Rose enough for her ongoing kindness and generosity.
This donation has changed the lives of many individuals at the local school, and it is thoughtful people like this who make such a positive massive impact in the lives of our community members.
