A few months ago, OGA donated 100 chickens for an income-generating project to help with school fees for orphaned children.

Speaking to The Zimbabwean, OGA director and field officer Pastor Norman Zakeyo said: “We are impressed by the good work done by the orphaned students at Chitenderano. It’s always not easy to run a chicken project, but these students have proven beyond doubt that they are committed to this project. Everything is running smoothly and we are convinced that they will be reaping the fruits of their hard work soon.”

Zakeyo said they were targeting other schools or similar projects as a way of helping out orphaned students struggling to raise school fees.

“Our main goal is to keep the orphans and less fortunate children in school. We start all our projects with 100 chicks and follow up to assess the progress in two to four weeks time. We need pupils to take advantage of this poultry and use the proceeds of chicken sales.

This project will assist in alleviating the challenges of the orphans and improve their work skills. Their grades in class are likely to improve as well.” OGA chief executive officer Mollin Ziwira said they were working hard to improve lives of orphans countrywide.

“We will try by all means to improve their educational lives alongside the other basic things they need to excel in life. We urge other people who might be interested to help us in achieving our goal of helping orphans,” she said.

OGA has already donated chickens to Rujeko and Vengere schools.
