Following efforts by residents of Inzula villages in Nkayi, north of Bulawayo, to built their first community secondary school, there are appeals to help them continue the good work and build another block.

Some fundraising efforts have already begun and by 14 September 2017, 62 bags of cement had been delivered to the school to begin construction of a third block.

The villagers started Jabulisa School Project in 2014 because the other secondary schools in the area were too far away for their children. This was causing some children to abandon education altogether soon after completing secondary education.

Jabulisa Secondary currently has about 200 pupils enrolled from forms one to four. During their spare time, pupils have assisted in the construction.

In 2016 the school managed to obtain a 13 percent Ordinary Level pass rate, following its first exams since the school project begun.

There will be more fundraising efforts at the end of the month. Below is a guide for donations but donors are invited to give what they can.

Donation guide for those in:
SA and rest of Africa - R100 or equivalent
Zimbabwe - $5
Overseas - $100 or equivalent
