WASHINGTON DC —
Some Zimbabweans living outside the country are engaged in various projects back home catering for the needs of the poor.
One of the organizations is Royal Destiny Gospel Choir, based in Britain, which has set up a scholarship fund for students failing to pay fees.
The group’s assistance comes at a time when the government released a report a few days ago indicating that 13,000 children dropped out of school in 2013 mostly due to lack of school fees.
The report titled Education Management System in Zimbabwe, shows that the government is also failing to run its program for poor students known as the Basic Education Assistance Program or BEAM because of lack of funds.
In trying to alleviate the suffering of such students, leader of Royal Destiny Gospel Choir, Maria Adonis Rusike, told VOA Studio 7 they have teamed up with an organization back home to help a few needy children.
