    BIKITA – Chiremwaremwa Primary School in Matsai area Mashoko under Chief Mabika in Bikita received a shot in the arm when Mushayamunda Christian Development Trust (MCDT) replaced a bush pump with an electric water pump recently.
    The donation was sourced by USA based Dereck Mushayamunda the patron of MCDT and the handover was done by his wife Mrs, Yvonne Mushayamunda and 14 members of the Trust from the USA.
    The pump was installed by Mr. James Vhomo, Mr. K. Ndebele and team replacing the manual bush pump which was installed by DDF in 1990. The water pump supplies the backup tank which has the capacity of 5 000 liters and the tap was installed a few meters from where the old bush pump was located. The borehole supplies the school and the surrounding community. Mai Mugarazano a villager said before it would take over an hour for the water to come out but now it is easier and faster.
     “We want every school in Matsai to have safe and fresh water at a reasonable distance, we will continue to work for the upliftment of schools in this area in order to improve the learning conditions for the students,” said Mushayamunda at the handover ceremony.
    Chiremwaremwa Primary School head Kumbirai Philomena Zengeya welcomed the electric pump donation which she said will go a long way in reducing the time pupils spend fetching water as it is no longer being pumped manually.
    “We used to be looked down upon but all, that has changed through the assistance from the trust. 23 orphans had their school fees paid for by the trust, eight blocks and 12 teachers’ houses were painted and we also got 28 chalkboards and some sporting equipment” said Zengeya.
    After the donation, the group led by Steve Palmer went on to conduct a coaching clinic for school teachers assisted by assistant coach Ms. Lesley and Mrs. Yvonne Mushayamunda to give them some basketball skills which they hoped to be imparted to the pupils at various schools in the area. They were taught shooting workouts, ball handling series, post drills, perimeter drills, penetration drills, 7 spot shooting, passing skills and later on went to the basketball court to exhibit what they were taught in class. The sports co-ordinator Mr. Joseph Vhengere confirmed that so far there are 19 basketball graduate teachers who previously received their certificates at level one on the 9th of February this year.
    At Mushayamunda Village Christian Church in Mashoko, the group also conducted gospel lessons where they encouraged villagers to live healthy Christian lives through sport.
    After the church service which was organized by Joseph Vhengere, Pastor Mate and the other church pastors, evryone who was present received neckties, caps, doeks and reading glasses.
    Vhengere said the annual sports gala is set for July 26 at Neguve Primary School in Ward 3 where 12 schools will compete for various prizes under the theme “Our Help Comes from God”.
