St Tabeth welcomes 3 orphaned girl residents

On the 1st of March 2021, Gokwe social welfare office referred 6 new child residents to St Tabeth. Mrs Mellisa Wright from the centre got in touch with St Tabeth secretary Mr Assah Moyo to make the referral and there was no hesitation on the part of St Tabeth in accepting this blessing.

The 3 of the 6 children were promptly brought to Chidoma by social welfare officers Mrs Khumalo and Mrs Wright and Mr Ziso their driver.

They were received by Mrs Moddie Moyo the Headmistress of Chemowa Primary School, Mr Assah Moyo the Secretary of St Tabeth Children’s Home, Mr Willard Mvurumu and Munashe Mpofu a Grade 7 student Chemowa.

The children will become the first full time residents of St Tabeth.

The home continues to need assistance in ensuring that we provide the best possible environment.
Donations and assistance are welcome.


Successful general public meeting held

St Tabeth Foundation this week held a general public meeting open to all our stake holders in the Chidoma District where the home is situated.

Attendance was wonderful as we were graced by the presence of local dignitaries including Headman Chisina, Chief Gumbero, councilor Maruza (Gokwe Chisina ward 25) plus the local kraal heads and community leaders from surrounding areas.

The Chidoma Zion Christian Church members and leadership provided support in co-hosting the meeting which was also attended by district social welfare officials.

On the agenda was a capacity building programme with the aim of officially receiving a parcel of land to be used as a market garden. The meeting also assessed immediate needs for the winter months, incorporating and launched a new fundraising campaign to enhance the financial standing in support of the goals discussed.

St Tabeth Foundation awarded private voluntary organisation status

St Tabeth Foundation has had registration for a private voluntay organisation certified by the Ministry of Social Welfare.

This is a good time for us to take stock set some goals and keep things moving. This can hopefully facilitate the discussion of those goals and the strategy required.

We thank all our members, local and international supporters as well as civic officials for the support in getting reaching this momentus milestone.


The rains are here

The dry season is now and well and truly over. The rains have been beating down on Chidoma relentlessly for the past two weeks. No we’re no complaining but this is worthy of mention because anyone who knows this part of Africa will know that life still revolves around the rain and what it means for the harvest.

Here’s hoping it stays around long enough to help everyone’s crop to take hold and disappear just in time for us to reap a bumper harvest. 🙂
