Hi everyone! Another important blog today from Friends of Pakati, it is a follow-on from the last post https://friendsofpakati.com/2023/09/17/whats-new/ where we showed the new IT lab at the Secondary school.
In the last couple of weeks I have had information & photos from Mrs Munatswa, teacher at the school. She sent me the following message: “These tables will accomodate 24 computers. May you please source more computers & wifi for Pakati secondary”
The school is delighted with the IT lab, as students have been admiring it.
So what we need to do is raise more funds to allow us to have the donated computers out to the school. There is no timescale as such, just as soon as we csn raise enough money for transporting the goods, probably at least £1000.
As it stands we have around £250 in the kitty, so we need to raise at least another £750 in the coming weeks. I have a small fundraiser at my work towards the end of this month which might raise another £50 or so.
Just recently in Zimbabwe there were elections, including local councils. The new Ward 14 councillor, Joakim Njenje, came to Pakati Secondary school to talk to the students.
Keep an eye out for more news from Friends of Pakati very soon!
