Tamuka Foundation and Friends of Dzikwa Society have received school stationary for children housed at the two centres from the Harare Mayor’s Cheer Fund.
The items include mathematical sets, counter books and exercise books, calculators, covers and school uniforms.
Ten children each from the two homes benefitted.
Harare Mayor Cllr Ben Manyenyeni handed the goods to representatives of the two home.
Tamuka Foundation Programme Officer Honesty Chifamba was happy with the continued support.
“The Harare Mayor’s Cheer Fund is one of the organisations that assists us very much in raising the orphaned and vulnerable children. We hope they keep on supporting us in our work,” said Chifamba.
Tamuka Foundation in Kuwadzana Extension is home to 23 orphaned children aged up to 18 years.
The home requires up to US$2000 to meet school fees obligations.
The home grows its own vegetables and maize.
“We might need assistance on basics like cooking oil, sugar and soap.”
Friends of Dzikwa Society Founder Mrs Priscilla Takawira said the home provides a meal to 400 orphaned children.
Of the children 386 are in primary and secondary school whilst 14 attend tertiary colleges.
The Harare Mayor’s Cheer Fund is working with various homes to ensure the orphaned and vulnerable children get the best services especially education.
