Help a child achieve their dreams by donating to Makomborero

Community Service

Revision SchoolsEach year Mark and Laura and the team run revision schools in the surrounding townships of Harare. These revision schools target pupils and students about to write their GCSE in October, so are run during the August school holidays. This is a much needed service for these schools, and is a wonderful way for our scholarship programme students to give back to their communities, as well as volunteer teachers from Zimbabwe or abroad.

Makomborero has been welcomed with open arms by the headteachers of many high schools we partner with. Our team of volunteers and students find it very humbling working with these schools and to see the hope that many pupils and students are given just by teachers who come from very different backgrounds to them taking the time to invest in their lives. The heads often say it is an incredible motivator for them.

Support of Rural Schools

rural school supportMark and Laura have a vision for education throughout Zimbabwe and love supporting rural schools. In previous years they have worked in Mondoro/Ngezi supporting local government schools, helping to raise achievement.  As a young family, whenever they go on holiday, they pop into rural schools along the way painting blackboards and leaving textbooks.  These schools often don’t receive much outside help and are always so grateful for any support that they receive.

It is hard to describe some of the conditions in these schools and what an impact something as small as painting a black board, donating text books, resources, chalk etc, can be.  With time they hope to establish a more strategic work with rural schools but, with a young family and Mark working a demanding job, they will continue to serve in this way.
