    CHIVI –
    Acclaimed philanthropist, Dr Killer Zivhu is spending $50 000 to rebuild two classroom blocks at Dzingirai Primary School in Nyahombe Resettlement area in Chivi South.
    The school has just two classroom blocks and the other classrooms are pole and dagga under thatch.
    Zivhu said in an interview with The Mirror that the project is to provide children with a conducive learning environment where classrooms are decent.
    "This is a project aligned to Chivi ZimAsset. The project is here to boost education for the children in the area and improve the structures at the school," said Dr Zivhu.
    The school was established in 2010 and was named after former ZANU PF MP for Chivi South Irvine Dzingirai who has since joined ZimPF.
    Lower grades (Early Childhood Development to grade 4) learn in makeshift grass thatched structures whilst upper grades use the two available classrooms.
    The headmaster Sailas Chikono said that at times teachers are forced to suspend studies when it rains because all the 350 pupils will be in the two classrooms for shelter.
    "At times we are forced to suspend studies when it rains. The children will be packed in the two classrooms and they cannot learn properly under such conditions," said Chikono.
    He also added that accommodation for teachers is also a challenge and this has led to mass exodus of teachers to better schools.
    Zivhu appealed to well-wishers to assist with furniture.
    "We are also appealing to well wishers to assist in the development of the school. They can assist financially or donate furniture since the children are learning seated on the ground," added Dr Zivhu.
    Meanwhile, the First Lady Grace Mugabe donated tracksuits and jerseys to the 350 pupils at the school. The goods were handed over by Zivhu on behalf of the First Lady.local news
