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.

Ich habe 3.978,00 € Spendengelder erhalten

Da wir das Grundstück in Eigenleistung erworben haben werden die Spenden nun zunächst für das Regenwassersystem einsetzen. Teile davon haben wir schon gekauft, den Bau werden wir im Juli umsetzen. Für die Solaranlage fehlen uns noch Finanzmittel, die wir über Stiftungen beantragt haben, sodaß wir damit dann hoffentlich auch bald mit dem bau beginnen können.
Ein Bericht über die derzeitige Situation ist auf der Homepage einsehbar.
Bongai Shamwari - Danke Freunde
