Education continues to be a big part of the Village of Hope Zimbabwe. There are currentl 330 Child Care Plus sponsored children in our Primary and Secondary Schools - children receiving an excellent education because of the generosity of their sponsors. This year there are three students in University, one in College and three doing their A Levels (Grade 13) off site. Below is a story about one of these students who has graduated from the Village of Hope and illustrates how these young people who have been supported by our community, are now achieving great results. Pamela and her brother Daniel were two of the original orphans at the Village of Hope beginning in 2006. Pamela is now attending university in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe and will graduate with a degree in accounting. Pamela states in a recent letter, “I would like to become a Chartered Accountant, and then expand my scope as a Financial Analyst. I also wish to get employed and be of amazing assistance to the Village Of Hope.”
