Save the Chil­dren do­ing good job

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

ED­I­TOR — May I thank Save the Chil­dren, a non­govern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tion for do­ing a ster­ling job in the Hwange Dis­trict.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion is help­ing about 20 pri­mary schools by build­ing in­fra­struc­ture such as ablu­tion blocks and do­nat­ing learn­ing ma­te­ri­als.

I was im­pressed by the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s con­cern and pas­sion for chil­dren. An ar­ray of work­shops have been held with teach­ers of the schools un­der their sup­port, staff de­vel­op­ing teach­ers on teach­ing ped­a­gogic to en­sure that all learn­ers ben­e­fit in the teach­ing and learn­ing process.

I was amused when they in­te­grated teach­ers and com­mu­ni­ties on ways in iden­ti­fy­ing haz­ards in their mi­lieu and find­ing pos­si­ble ways of re­dress­ing them be­fore dis­as­ter un­folds.

Re­cently the or­gan­i­sa­tion held work­shops on chil­dren’s rights in­clud­ing ways of deal­ing with chil­dren liv­ing with dis­abil­i­ties.

Toi­let fa­cil­i­ties to cater for the dis­abled per­sons in schools have been erected to pro­mote easy nav­i­ga­tion of those us­ing wheel­chair.

As a par­ent I have ob­served that teach­ers are work­ing closely and tire­lessly with the donor in this part of the coun­try. Mean­while, I im­plore the donor to cas­cade its gen­eros­ity to more schools in the dis­trict in­clud­ing sec­ondary schools. Thank­ful, Vic­to­ria Falls.

Mr Obert Gutu
