Mapere Classroom Block and Learning Centre Project

Mapere Primary School has been the main primary education facility for the surrounding farmlands in Concession, Northern Zimbabwe. The plight of the residents in this area surrounding these farms has worsened over the years. By uplifting the standard of education of the children in this area, we will give these children the opportunity to gain skills that will empower them beyond their families current socioeconomic status. Without the basic infrastructure and foundation in education, it closes the door on future opportunities for these children.

Mapere Primary School has been the main primary education facility for the surrounding farmlands in Concession, Northern Zimbabwe. The plight of the residents in this area surrounding these farms has worsened over the years. By uplifting the standard of education of the children in this area, we will give these children the opportunity to gain skills that will empower them beyond their families current socioeconomic status. Without the basic infrastructure and foundation in education, it closes the door on future opportunities for these children.

Due to the over population of the school some classes were taking place outdoors in the elements. The Ubunye Challenge has helped build two new classroom school blocks and a new learning centre. The relief of the new classroom blocks has allowed the school to give the children more learning space and a more conducive environment for learning.
