It was an emotional day for the parents, children and teachers at Majiji Primary School in Bubi District, Zimbabwe as the Collin Nyabadza Children's Voice Charitable Trust (CNCVCT) kindly donated classroom furniture to the school on Friday 29th May, 2015.

In a colourful function held at the school, the young but fast growing non- profit organisation donated classroom furniture worth USD4 293. The money was kindly donated to the trust by Global Education Fund (GEF) of Edmonton, Canada where the Nyabadza Trust's Executive Director is based. The Canadian organisation kindly donated an amount of CAD6 000 for this project. The equipment handed over to the school consisted of 17 Group Tables, 170 Chairs, 2 Teachers Tables and 2 Teachers Chairs. This support therefore means that from this day onwards 170 children at the school will never have to sit on dirty floors again in class.

Present at the function were Majiji Primary School's parent governing authority, the School Development Council (SDC), Bubi District Council who are the Responsible Authority and were represented by their Chairperson and their CEO and Bubi District Assistant. The Collin Nyabadza Children's Voice Charitable Trust was represented by the board's Chairperson, Mr. Siqhubumthetho Dube and the Projects Officer, Mr. Ronald L. Ncube. The school principal of a neighbouring secondary school was also present to witness the occasion. In his prepared speech which he read in both SiNdebele and English, the CNCVT board chairperson Mr. Dube gave a chronicle of how his organisation was formed by a group of men and women of high repute, some of whom are beneficiaries of the founder's benevolence. He further encouraged the parents to do their part in supporting the school's development activities while his organisation complimented their efforts.

Mr. Dube is highly regarded in that area and has over 18 years' experience in the teaching field most of them as school principal in Lupane District where he is still revered for the sterling work he did in helping enhance the quality of education in all the schools he served. In his closing remarks he stressed, "We are there to partner with other development agencies and the government to ensure that marginalized members of our society, in particular children are not put down by poverty. To achieve this, transparency and accountability are our core values and our modus- operandi. Ours is a non-political organisation whose mission and purpose is to serve the interests of any child in our society".

The Collin Nyabadza Children's Voice Charitable Trust is a unique organisation, as all its board members work on a voluntary basis, as its aim is to ensure that every penny raised, goes to assist the needy schools. Their ultimate goal is that of using the organisation as a vehicle to inculcate the concept of volunteering and that of giving back to the community among fellow Zimbabweans. One of the organisation's biggest assets is the composition of their team. They all live and work in the communities they serve. The majority of them are school principals or teachers in those struggling communities and thus they are more conversant with the challenges of running schools without proper teaching and learning facilities.
