We paid for 10 children photographed here next to our trustee. (9 children in the picture because 1 was absent on the day) Thank you to everyone who donated and played a part in blessing these children.
Jan 2020 we paid fees for them again.
Apr 2020 schools shut down due to the pandemic; looking to reopen in Sept
About 49% of children across the country get turned away from school due to parents failing to pay school fees.
We all know education is key and every child has the right to education. We, as Refined Eight just want to do our part in making sure each child has access to education.
So starting with 10 children at Tsungai Primary School in Harare, we are funding for the education of underprivileged children.
As a survivor of child sex abuse, our founder Sisanda CJ personally knows the vital necessity for survivors to receive professional counseling as part of their healing journey.
However, trauma is barely addressed within the nation leading to inadequate support for survivors.
This is why we are currently in talks with the Adult Rape Clinic (ARC) based in Harare in order to form a partnership that will pioneer the healing of many survivors.
Sanitary wear is unaffordable for many women in Zimbabwe. Some end up using rugs, leaves and in worst-case scenarios, some even turn to sex work just to be able to buy this basic necessity.
This is no way for a woman to live which is why our charity distributes pads for FREE! We want to see every girl not only survive life but thrive and conquer it.
We're currently deciding on the best for us way to do this. However, K.U.K Alliance is an organisation that's already doing it!
Your support will enable us to continue showing the children and survivors in Zimbabwe that they matter, they are not forgotten.
We are currently in the process of being registered as a legal and official charity within the U.K. In the meantime, we'll be in touch via email about your donation or any updates. Thank you.
I'm a teacher at Tsungai Primary School. I have a BSc in Sociology and I would like to work together to help those in need, especially children who can't afford school fees; so they can proceed and succeed in their education.
I'm a feminist at heart. I'm really passionate about helping girls because I can resonate with them. I know their struggles, so I want to help girls fight them.
I'm a 2nd year medical student at The University of Zimbabwe. I believe I was called to serve. For me, Refined Eight is key to the success of my dream of raising a generation of highly empowered and healthy young ladies and the community at large.
