World Vision funds Beitbridge School construction

BEITBRIDGE-Construction of the World Vision-funded Tshabili Secondary School in Beitbridge Rural Ward 2 is almost complete, World Vision Matibe area program manager Pretty Dube has said. 
She said the US$156 000 project, which began in 2021, will most likely be completed in August. 
The only remaining structure under construction is a third teacher’s cottage. 
“We started the project from scratch and are working on the last teacher’s cottage. We expect to complete the project in August+ this year,” she said.
She said Beitbridge Rural District Council (RDC) provided financial support, quarry stones and fuel while the community provided builders. World Vision paid the builders. The builders also moulded bricks.
Beitbridge RDC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Peter Moyo said the Public Works Department also chipped in and provided technical support for the project.
“The council and Public Works Department have been providing technical support on the project while the community provided labour,” he said. 
Although the school is yet to be commissioned it opened its doors to students in 2022. The four classroom blocks accommodate more than 250 learners. The learners are from Form 1- Form 4. 
Previously, the learners walked over 20 km to Tshitulipasi Secondary School in Ward 1. The primary beneficiaries of the school are pupils in Wards 2 and 3. 
World Vision constructed classroom blocks, toilets, a fishpond and staff houses. 
The school has income-generating activities such as gardening and fish farming funded by World Vision.
