The donation included a vehicle, borehole and water reservoir tanks, a generator and a media centre with computers and electronic information.
Hope Sadza, the founder and Vice Chancellor of the WUA, said students struggled to study because of frequent power outages and water challenges.
Speaking at the handover ceremony, Unicef country representative Reza Hossaini emphasised the importance of educating women. In January the WUA in partnership with Unicef introduced a post graduate diploma in Child Sensitive Social Policies.
The programme seeks to provide a practical long-term solution to the lack of expertise in children’s issues at national level in Zimbabwe and the region.
The diploma will equip students with skills and expertise on how to research, analyse, monitor and evaluate public policy in order to strengthen democratic governance and solve children’s challenges.
The focus is on imparting skills and expertise to apply basic human rights principles to the design of proposals for advancing children’s rights. Zimbabwe’s new Constitution acknowledges children’s rights stating that it is the duty of the state to ensure the adoption of policies and measures that guarantee and preserve their best interests.Post published in: News
