In Chimanimani, MTC field officers and volunteers made 500 face masks to help with the safe reopening of schools. Our own MTC scholars and soccer players are involved in this project. We are observing social distancing which is why we are having fewer people come for the project per day. Thank you for the donations towards this project. The community has responded so well to the call to volunteers to sew face masks.
Since mid-March, I have been doing online learning. I have been worrying about my friends in Chimanimani, Zimbabwe, that my organization is sending to school. The girls are orphaned, they don't have phones so can't get on WhatsApp and join a class.
Google Classroom? Zoom? Wi-Fi? No chance. I am worried about the widening gap in education between those with some way of accessing tools for online education and those who are simply cut off. My friends and I are the same age and they are remaining behind.
MTC has been sewing face masks to donate in the community to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This request broke my heart because education is close to my heart and the principal wrote to me asking for help, so my friends can get some education, yet I can't help.
If anyone can help me buy cloth for this school to start teaching again while keeping the students safe, please donate on my website and I will send the money to them. Your names will be on the response letter too.
Please see the attached letter from the school principal.
