Community Based Aid Programme (CBAP) has vowed to continue helping vulnerable people and orphans in communities in Masvingo.
This comes after CBAP donated stationery and paid school fees to 30 students at Morgenster and Chirichoga High Schools last week.
CBAP director Samuel Mhungu said they adopted a number of pupils and students from various schools and tertiary institutions across the province and would assist with school fees and stationery.
“Our organisation plays a diaconal role which reaches to the community helping orphans and other vulnerable people and we have adopted students and pupils in over 10 schools.
“This is like a scholarship programme where we identify students and pupils faced with financial challenges to pursue their studies.
“We only need serious students and pupils who are able to maintain good marks as we will be monitoring them,” said Mhungu.
Mhungu said they were also helping Reformed Church in Zimbabwe (RCZ) members and those from other churches by giving them start up packages so that they start projects of their own and various groups have already started chicken projects which were already viable and the proceeds were being channelled to helping the poor.
Recently CBAP was at Nyajena church conducting a training workshop for church leaders drawn from different denominations on business ideas which they could embark on for their churches.
“Ours is a faith based organisation and we want to empower church leaders with knowledge which they will impart to their congregants so that they will be able to pay tithes and other monetary requirements in their respective churches,” said Mhungu
