School gets new furniture

An Australian group of well-wishers, Extensive Support Network, last week donated school furniture to Prospect Children's Home, 20km east of Mutare city centre.

Maria Mashiri received the 100 chairs and 100 desks in her capacity as patron of the centre. ESN last year refurbished the school and classrooms at a cost of $10

000 and donated a television set, satellite decoder and sports equipment that included soccer and netball kits.

The excellent relationship between ESN and the centre dates back to 2000 when the same organisation donated some blankets and food items.

"The relationship has been growing from strength to strength," said James Atkinson from ESN.

The donation also coincided with the commemoration of the centre's 11th anniversary. "We hope this donation will provide a good learning environment for students," he said.

Mashiri thanked the Australian-based organisation for the difference it has been making to the centre.

"We enjoy a sound relationship with ESN. I would like to comment positively on the various responses that are being shown by this organisation. On behalf of the centre I would like to express our profound appreciation," she said.

Prospect Children's Home was set up in 2000 by Elizabeth Dale to provide education and skills training for orphaned and vulnerable children.
