Midlands State University’s ROTARACT club recently put words into action after the club donated exercise books, text books, pens and pencils to pupils at Senga Primary school as part of efforts to assist pupils in need.
Pupils from Grades 4 to 7 who were in urgent need of the books and pens received this much needed academic boost on the 10th March, 2016. President of the MSU ROTARACT club, Kudakwashe Madziva said that the donation was the first of many donations that the club intended to make to Senga Primary and many other schools out in the community.
“The ROTARACT club has donated exercise books, counter books, pens and pencils hoping that this will go a long way in assisting these less privileged children. In good faith, we hope to return and give more as well as extend our hand to other less privileged children in the Zimbabwean community as a whole,” said Kudakwashe.
Senga Primary school headmistress, Mrs Mhike thanked the Midlands State University community for this timely gesture that has benefited their less privileged pupils in their pursuit for academic excellence.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank the Midlands State University as a whole for their continued and unwavering support to the course of the less privileged pupils learning at Senga Primary school. Teachers have a great problem in teaching some of these students who come from financially less privileged families as they struggle to buy exercise books. Thank you Midlands State University”, concluded Ms Mhike.
Pupils who benefitted from the courtesy of the ROTARACT club also thanked the Midlands State University for their generosity.
“To you our ROTARACT brothers and sisters thank you. Do not forget also to thank Midlands State University for this wonderful deed,” said the pupils.
