    MASHOKO - The Mushayamunda Christian Development Trust (MCDT) held its annual event at Mushayamunda Village Christian Church where they donated books and other accessories to students across the district while drilling boreholes at Chiremwaremwa Primary School, Bambaninga Primary School, Chemukonde Secondary School and the other one in the Jiri area under Chief Mabika area in Bikita.
    The annual event is sponsored by Dereck Mushayamunda who was born in Bikita but moved to USA in 1991 where he is now based with the assistance of likes of Pastor Mashoko.
    The MCDT was formed in 2001 with the help of other fellow missionaries based in the USA. This year only 10 Americans came along with Mr Mushayamunda for the five day event which started on Saturday last week.
    “We believe that faith without works is not good enough hence we decided to embark on development projects like drilling boreholes, sharing testimonies, women’s clubs, supplying textbooks to students and sponsoring games for recreation purposes,” said Mushayamunda.
    The acting district administrator, Matingwena and the schools inspector Chigiya also graced the occasion.
    To date the trust has dug 15 wells and a number of boreholes which have gone a long way in alleviating the plight of villagers especially women who used to travel long distances to fetch safe water.
    This year they drilled four boreholes at Chiremwaremwa and Bambaninga primary schools, Chemukonde Secondary School and the other one in the Jiri area under Chief Mabika.
    The Trust also helps in paying school fees for under privileged kids who have potential to do well.
    In the past they have donated over 30 computers to schools, the ZRP base and Registrar General’s office at Chiremwaremwa. They also gave over 700 scientific calculators to all the high schools in the Mashoko area.
    In 2004, they introduced sport as part of major events during the annual retreat and the games have grown to include eight schools from the area with soccer being the main attraction.
    Due to incessant droughts in the area the Trust has also included supplementary feeding in schools to curb malnutrition in over 36 schools.
    In 2009 they introduced the widows’ conference which brings all widows together for prayer, teaching and encouragement. At these gatherings the women are taught self help projects like sewing and market gardening.
