Yesterday Ambassador Melanie Robinson and the Development Director designate Geraldine O’Callaghan visited a #UKaid🇬🇧-supported girls secondary school in Bulawayo.

The ZGSE programme supports 1063 schools in 29 of the poorest districts in Zimbabwe🇿🇼. The UK has provided each school with two additional thermometers to assist the government of Zimbabwe track and trace efforts to test learners to help combat #COVID-19 across schools in the country.

In 2020 #UKaid-supported School Improvement Grants (SIGs) reached 4,500 of the most fragile schools around Zimbabwe contributing to:

📚Enhanced learning environments for pupils

📝Improved physical conditions

📏Improved functionality

Grade 7 pass-rates at SIG schools went ⬆️ by 23% in 2019 compared with 2015, while the pass-rate of schools without the grants went ⬆️ by 13%

🚺 Pass-rates for girls went ⬆️ by 23% in SIG schools versus 15.7% in non-SIG schools

🚹 Pass-rates for boys went ⬆️ by 21% versus 9.2%

SIGs are seen to be covering the right things:

⏺ They’ve funded key projects in the broader realm of improvements in the teaching and learning environments:

⏺ Schools receiving SIGs were better equipped in terms of basic learning materials and classroom furniture #UKaid

SIGs have also provided a positive effect for girls' enrollment and attendance through the construction of additional WASH facilities.

SIGs’ adaptability has ensured the right things are being funded with a strong developmental thrust to ensure its benefits will endure #UKaid

On #WorldWaterDay we’re profiling these thoughtful pieces on Women and Water by brilliant #Zimbabwe #artist Charles Nkomo, recently acquired for the British Embassy in Harare. Here’s what Charles has to say on the theme.

“These paintings are inspired by the water problems that the country has faced. Apart from the drought we as people are also majorly contributing to the climate change. The two lonely trees are awaiting the day they too will be cut into either timber or firewood. Sand poaching has land to serious environmental degradation. Both land and water pollution are disturbing the ecosystem. People have suffered in their endeavour to get the precious liquid. Animals and nature have suffered with no recourse. I live in Bulawayo and we started off with 24hr water shedding until we finally got to a point where we would get water whenever it was available. At times that was fortnightly, in some instances once monthly. And that brought fear when Covid 19 hit the country and people were told survival depended on cleanliness - regular had washing. The desperation was equally mirrored in the sad tall trees with shrivelled leaves that looked as though they too were praying to the Almighty to make those clouds rain and bring life-saving water.”
