    Pope inspires Bondolfi Mission to embark on clean-up campaign

    Some of the participants  at Bondolfi clean up campaign.

    BONDOLFI - Bondolfi Mission, comprising of the primary and secondary schools and the teachers’ college have embarked on a clean-up campaign in line with a theme introduced by Pope Francis in 2015.
    The three institutions under Bondolfi Mission namely; Bondolfi Central Primary School, Bondolfi Secondary School and Bondolfi Teachers’ College on Friday went on a cleanup campaign of Chirasha Business Centre which is near the mission. The cleanup which included pupils, students, student teachers, priests, lecturers and the community at large also extended their cleanup campaign from the business centre up to Mafuva Turn off.
    Celestino Uriga who is Masvingo District Environmental Officer for EMA attended the event as the guest of honour.
    The team which was led by Fr  James  Magadzire, Fr Thomas Mandaza, Fr Oscar Chagweda and Fr Zindova cleaned the place and also picked litter.
    Bondolfi Teachers’ College principal, Kizito Chitsama told The Mirror in an interview that the cleanup campaign was guided by the theme which was introduced by Pope Francis in 2015. The theme in Latin is Laudosi Cleanup Campaign which in English means On Care For The Common Home.
    This theme has since been adopted by Bishop Michael Bhasera who has been urging all Catholic institutions to promote the programme now on monthly basis. Some Schools like St Antony and Silveira have already done the campaign, said Chitsama.
    “It is also important that the programme resonates with his Excellency President Mnangagwa’s vision who declared Zero Tolerance to litter. As Bondolfi we are a step ahead as far as cleanliness is concerned. We have a club led by Madias Makudo and Shylet Magadhe called Go Green Club which is responsible for the environment.
    Uriga urged everyone to make it his or her responsibility to clean the environment. He also called upon Bondolfi Mission to come up with a waste recycling project.
    ‘There is money in litter so let us turn trash into money. Cans and some plastic bottles are recycled for other uses. People should improvise 3 Rs, namely; reduce, reuse and recycle,” said Uriga.
