Bongai Shamwari Early Childhood Centre

managed by C. Zeller

About us

The association Bongai Shamwari supports kindergartens in Zimbabwe. The aim is to enable needy people, especially children in Zimbabwe, to help themselves to a self-determined life in their own country through preschool education. In 2016, the idea was born to build a model kindergarten in Mutare, supported by Nicholas and Peter, former kindergarten children of Christa Zeller. Integration, sustainability, understanding of culture and community are the four priorities according to which the kindergarten is geared. Since January 2018, Bongai Shamwari Early Childhood Center is operating. The active involvement of locals in the project intensifies social interaction and a sense of responsibility. The ECC employs two trained early childhood teachers, an artist for music, art and cultur, a groundsman and gardener for our vegetable garden, a cook and a project manager. Thus, the income of these people and their families is guaranteed, not matter of course with 90% unemployment in the country.

Liebe Bongai Shamwari Freunde,
inzwischen haben wir den Regenwassertank fertiggestellt und haben schon kräftig gesammelt. Derzeit wird unser Garten ganz aus diesem Tank bewässert und gedreiht prächtig! Durch Corona mussten wir leider den Kindergarten schliessen, aber unsere Kinder und unsere Familien werden mit Essen und spielerischen Aufgaben versortgt. Da hilft der Wassertank enorm, denn so haben wir genügend Wasser um genügend Gemüse anzubauen. 
Die Photovoltaikanlage konnten wir nur teilweise umsetzen, da fehlt es noch an finanziellen Mittel. Aber wir haben ein Panel auf dem dach, was uns reicht für den Kühlschrank und Strom für Licht abends!
