Rozaria Memorial Trust representatives Kudakwashe Dizha and Elizabeth Taonezvi joined scores of community members and supporters of Magaya School on 23 December 2011. The event was to mobilise the community in supporting the construction of two classroom blocks.
The Australian Government provided donation for the materials, and the community will provide the bricks, labour and other incidentals. The event hosted by the Magaya Old Students Association and the School Development Committee was a welcome move in rebuilding the school, whose infrastructure is run down and with student now studying in over-crowded rooms or outside.
Rozaria Memorial Trust pledged its cooperation with the school and the community, building on its current programmes that are providing educational fee subsidy to children living with HIV. The late Mbuya Rozaria Marumisa Dizha served for many years in the 70s and the 80s as an active member of the School Development Committee, including the Sports Committee. The Founder and Chairperson of Rozaria Memorial Trust, Mrs Nyaradzayi Gumbonzvanda is the current patron of the Magaya Old Student Association.
Mrs Wachipa, the school head for Magaya Primary school extended her heartfelt appreciation to Mr Chikombe, the SDC Chair and his Committee, Mr Chinakise Pasirayi and Mr Shepherd Mapiki, Chairperson and Treasurer respectively for MOSA, and the rest of the people gathered. “Building the new classrooms is the best Christmas gift for the student, especially now”, she concluded with an affirming the contribution and support of the community.
