British Man Who Taught In Rural Murewa Returns To Former School

British Man Who Taught In Rural Murewa Returns To Former School

A former teacher from Bradford, United Kingdom, arrived at his former school in Zimbabwe on Wednesday, 21 September, as his fundraising campaign for underprivileged young people continues.

Chris Walker, who lives in Great Horton, is in rural Murewa, Mashonaland East Province, where he is supporting Pakati secondary and primary schools.

Walker taught at Pakati Secondary School between 1989 and 1991.

In the UK, he used to teach at Royd Mount Middle School in Thornton and Marshfield Primary.

Walker now runs the charity Friends of Pakati, through which he has donated laptops, polo shirts and football kits to the two schools.

He is still appealing for more funds to help the young people in rural Murewa. Walker said:

We have been very fortunate to have received a number of donations, which I am now transporting to Zimbabwe.

But we are still looking for more funds to complete the solar repairs at Pakati Primary School.

So far, we have raised £168 of the £600 we need.

The solar panels need replacing, and the lack of power is a real problem for both schools.

Walker organised a fundraiser for Friends of Pakati when his beloved club visited Valley Parade last season. | Telegraph & Argus

You dont need a thousand US dollars to make a difference, just a dollar and a dream you can change thousand mindsets. You just need support from those you intend to help. Kubatsirwa nevaurikuda kubatsira kuti zvifambe. Vanhu vane donor syndrome vakajaira kuombera maoko vanonetsa kubatsira. Vakare vaiti nyamutambirwi gwinyawo. Muvheti uyu arikuda donation so that he wont be burdened by everything. Vagari vekwaMurehwa ane chaanacho even dollar even huku even RTGS bhoo zvotofamba. Design your destiny mhani
