Just talked to friends in Zim

I talked to Fibion in Bulawayo.

Frustrated, underpaid teachers abound across Zimbabwe. Some schools were threatening to make kid pay extra to hire "teachers" as private tutors or face learning nothing in school. Thankfully, the churches we work with intervened, listened to schools needs & parent or caretaker concerns, and made a plan for how to resolve the issues.

Just another great validation of our model - working with and through the local church.
