Dingani Primary School is located in the small town of Dete, close to Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. The school has over 300 pupils from the ages of 4 to 12 years old and the school is in dire need of equipment and maintenance in order to continue the education and development of their pupils. Hideaways has partnered with Dingani Primary School to assist with the sustainable development of this local communities children.
During a storm in September 2015 Dingani School encountered major constructional damage. Windows were smashed and two classrooms lost their entire roofs. Both classrooms are unusable in their current state which means classes are forced to mix, so instead of thirty-five pupils in one class some of the lessons have seventy-plus pupils sharing, with different age groups forced to learn together.
Through fundraising and sponsorship, Hideaways are acquiring the resources the school requires to offer the children the education they deserve. We are managing all requirements for the maintenance of the school and various labour events have been organised for the work to take place.
