Speaking to The Zimbabwean, OGA director and field officer Pastor Norman Zakeyo said their duty was to help bring about a supportive environment for pupils countrywide. “We want to help eliminate problems faced by students at various schools countrywide,” said Zakeyo.
His organisation has already made a start in helping less privileged pupilsby distributing 300 exercise books, uniforms for ten children, textbooks, soccer uniforms and volleyball vests. The OGA also donated 50 chickens and feed for a school mini-business that helps children pay their fees.
Two years ago, OGA donated 25 chickens to the school.
“I am pleased that they have managed to develop the project,” said Zakeyo. “They increased their flock of chickens to 50, and we have now doubled that,” said OGA co-ordinator Tinashe Hilda Mpapati.
Continuing support officer Mollin Ziwira said they would continue the fight for a better life for orphans.
“My heart goes out to these orphans and the poor because I am one of them. I know what it is like when you are escorted out of class like a thief for not paying school fees,” she said.
Tawanda Mugwagwa, one of the pupils, said: ‘OGA is making our life easier. We don’t have anyone else catering for us. We will not disappoint them as students.”
OGA has also donated chickens to Rujeko and Vengere schools and runs a similar poultry project at Chitenderano secondary school.Post published in: News
