THE 2017 CHIEF (Chipinge In­ter­na­tional Ex­hi­bi­tion and Fash­ion) Miss Chipinge, Ta­fara Makuyana, (23) toured Mount Selinda Pri­mary and High Schools re­cently in a bid to help marginalised stu­dents get schol­ar­ships for them to achieve their ob­jec­tives. She was ac­com­pa­nied by the Chief co­or­di­na­tor, Mr Ashi­rai Mtirikwi Mawere; the duo in­ter­acted with the school of­fi­cials there.

‘‘I went to Mount Selinda to iden­tify chil­dren who des­per­ately need as­sis­tance for them to go to school. We went there with Mr Mawere and plans are at an ad­vanced stage to bring the iden­ti­fied or­phans and vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren on board,’’ she said.

Mr Dh­lakama, the Mount Selinda Pri­mary School head, was op­ti­mistic that the stu­dents will ap­pre­ci­ate what Miss Chipinge is do­ing.

‘‘We are grate­ful that Ta­fara Makuyana is liv­ing up to her prom­ise last year when she won the pageant. These chil­dren have been of­fered a win­dow of op­por­tu­nity to shine aca­dem­i­cally,’’ the head said.

Ta­fara Makuyana would be re­lin­quish­ing her ti­tle on Fe­bru­ary 17, 2018 as she crowns a new cat­walk queen for Chipinge.
