BY VANESSA GONYE MORE than 1 900 students and 5 400 community members in Gokwe North in Midlands province are benefitting from a US$5,7 million project initiative by Japan and the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA).

Some 40 teachers have also benefited from the project in a district that has a serious shortage of schools and lack of educational infrastructure, such as classroom blocks and staff houses.

“The people of Japan understand the value of education and we heard there was a need for better schools here in Kabuyuni so, we decided to support the girls and boys here.”

Kumagai said he hoped that the development would attract more certified full-time teachers to the schools.

“By constructing these schools and giving these children a good environment to learn in, we have impacted their lives and made the world a better place,” ADRA Zimbabwe country director, Judith Musvosvi said.
