Zimbabwe Trip – July/August 2019


A team of volunteers returned to Zimbabwe to visit the community of Nemauku. One of Bachlaw’s young people was included in the trip.

Brighter Horizons Zimbabwe sponsored trips to Victoria Falls, Crocodile Rock, Zambezi River Sail and Hwange National Park for Nemauku Primary School. This was thoroughly enjoyed by all and was a great experience for the school children, who would not normally be able to access such experiences.

The group also met with the 24 scholarship children to check on their progress. At the end of their school year, Brighter Horizons will sponsor another pupil to attend high school and further their education.

Hosting a Sports Day in Zimbabwe for the community has become an annual event. Nemauku and the surrounding communities come together to enjoy a day of sports and share a meal.

Before returning to Scotland, the team had a meeting to plan for the next stages of the project. They met and appointed a local board of advisors. Marsh Trading have been hired to complete the community hall. We plan to open the hall next summer.
