The six recipients were randomly drawn from people who used the MoneyGram service between December last year and January this year. Tamudzai Muchero of Unit N Seke, received $1 000; while Learnmore Kamusvaba of Egypt, Highfield, received $750.
The other recipients were Grace Mhaka of Sunningdale, $500; Owen Tapiwa Chikonyora, Glen View 8, $250; Peter Dzikiti of Ruwa and Victoria Njagu of Norton who both received $100 each.
The school fees vouchers are expected to lessen the burden on the recipient six families given the harsh economic climate that has left thousands of families struggling to pay for their children's education.
Presenting the school fees vouchers last week, MoneyGram International vice president for marketing in charge of Europe and Africa, Ana Ansell, who was on a visit to Zimbabwe said the value a nation puts on education determines the survival and the future of that nation; and that her organisation believed in the maxim which says “give your child a good education today and have a good rest tomorrow”.
“We in MoneyGram strongly believe in this and actively seek to help the communities we operate in to actualise this. Education opens our mind and expands our horizon,” she said.
MoneyGram is a leading international money transfer company, working to enable people who are not fully served by traditional financial institutions to send money around the world quickly and safely. The company has a network that covers over 320 000 locations in 200 countries including Zimbabwe.
