LCV continues to provide a safe home for the children
Lirhanzo Children’s Village (LCV) continues to provide a safe and secure home for over 30 children.
Some of these are orphans, some require out of home care due to domestic and family violence and a few reside at LCV so they are able to get the primary school education the need.
There are over 200 LCV and local children now attending the LCV primary school. AFADU pays for half of the 10 teachers at the school.
AFADU also supports around 18 children at the Secondary school in Chikombedzi – providing school fees, books, food and housing. We also support a few of our older children in vocational training and to attend university.
Some updates on a few of the LCV family are below:
• 2 new babies, Alexander and Tawadzera are now on our program, one child born to a girl at LCV and one baby dumped at Rutenga and brought to LCV by Social Services
• 3 other children (Nyaradzo, 15 Elmore 10 and Elvin 15) were placed at LCV by Social Services during the year
• 3 local and bright children were added to our program from the wider community. The two older girls, Tiyesalani and Kulani live in town with Margret and attend high school and are doing well and their brother, Wisani is still at primary school but expected to be bright
• Dudzai and Marvellous have left the program after getting married. The two girls were married. One is still studying at Masvingo Technical College
• Blessing has gained employment at LCV as a “carpenter” and is also getting married after further education at Caritas College
• One of our older girls tried reconnection with her family and left the program. Following a period away she has requested to return to LCV to continue her studies
