Our new campus is in Zvishavane, an old mining town in the Midlands Province of Central Zimbabwe. Surrounded by beautiful low rolling hills, it lies 295 km south-west of the capital city of Harare with a population of over 45,000. Zvishavane was a bustling hive of economic activity until 2013 when mining ceased in the area. It left the local community without livelihoods and unemployment rose with many resorting to gold panning as a means of survival. With the closest high school a 5km walk away, many children did not pursue their secondary education to also pan for gold.
Our new campus addresses a great need and opportunity in Zvishavane, providing secondary education and career skills training for this disadvantaged community. With ample space for classrooms, two assembly halls and many outbuildings and gardens ready for renovation, some paint and polish from community volunteers will turn this campus into a bright star for Zimbabwe!
