With your donations, our mission team supplies basic necessities to help African communities thrive!
Marymount University of Arlington, Virginia generously donated 4 complete sets of soccer jerseys to the Vulindlela Secondary School! There is no doubt that the students around Chisuma and Simakade will put these uniforms to good use! Athletics is an important part of the education experience for high-school aged students. Soccer, in particular, has a special place in Zimbabwean culture.
The Buy a Brick Foundation is currently preparing for a mission trip to build the very first secondary school in the rural area around the villages Chisuma and Simakade (30 miles outside Victoria Falls). To make this build possible, the Buy a Brick Foundation needed a total $75,000 (donate). With this money, we will build two school blocks, a teachers' living quarters, toilet facilities, bath houses, and a kitchen.
Most students in these villages, after 8th grade, must make a choice between walking 10 miles to the next closest secondary school, or discontinuing their education. You can imagine which choice is more common. A single brick may not seem like it could make a difference, but we know from experience that every brick is a giant step forward.
Thanks to your generous donations, we are now only $6,000 from our target goal for the Vulindlela Secondary School! The Buy a Brick Foundation's Team Africa mission team leaves for Zimbabwe on April 5th, so please consider making a donation to help us close this final budget gap! Remember that our mission team members pay their own way to Zimbabwe, so all donations are applied to the cost of the school construction project!
Please, donate and buy a brick for the Vulindlela Secondary School project today!!!
Our mission is to help create self-sustaining, thriving Zimbabwean communities and nourish the holistic needs of the Zimbabwean people by:
