Beneficiaries Succeeding

More success stories: this time from our Non Formal Education (NFE) beneficiaries. Among FAWEZI’s beneficiaries are two sisters: Nyengeterai and Angeline Bene, who completed form 4 at Domboramwari High School under NFE in 2018. They both did well and made us proud!

FAWEZI is grateful to GlobalGiving online fundraising platform and to all our online donors who continue to help us give young women a second chance at education. Angeline now has 6 ‘O’ level subjects while Nyengeterai has 5 ‘O’ Level subjects. FAWEZI is currently on the lookout for opportunities to help them further their studies, so feel free to reach out to FAWEZI with any scholarship opportunities you know about. Congratulations Nyengeterai and Angeline!

Out of School Girls Project

FAWEZI is implementing the second phase of an advocacy project to promote Second Chance Education for out of school girls in Binga District.

On February 18 2015 FAWEZI held a project start-up workshop which brought together 16 representatives from: Binga Rural District, District Lifelong Coordinators, District Administrator, and representatives of Non Governmenta organisations, School Heads from Chinonge Secondary School, Lusulu High School, Chibila and Chipalae Primary School and other Local Representatives. The aim of the workshop was to share the activities of the project and to gather strategies from stakeholders to improve the project impact.

In the past, Zimbabwe had no national policy on Non Formal Education in Zimbabwe. However it is gratifying to note that the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education launched the National Non-Formal Education Policy for Zimbabwe on the 29 of February 2015. The agenda of the policy is to promote alternative pathways to increase access and quality education in Zimbabwe. The Non Formal Education Policy provides a higher degree of flexibility for learners who want to access education out of the formal system
