So what happened to the 15 students who graduated from Makomborero last year?

This is a question we get asked all the time and I thought it would be nice for you to have a short update as to what these precious 15 are up to!!

Through the kind donation of a doctor couple in the UK we have been able to set up our own University Grant system! We are so excited by this and know that many of the students will benefit from this in years to come. The vision is that this grant fund becomes a Makomborero Zimbabwe past student support grant, with the initial injection of money coming from this couple. Students will pay back their grants to Makomborero Zimbabwe once they start full-time employment and thus it becomes a sustainable grant but also something inspiring for Ex Makomborero Students to be part of giving back!

Here is a brief story for each of them!
