Gomo Tuition Program

The Gomo Foundation provides funding to our partner schools to cover tuition and other expenses preventing girls from attending school. This program was developed in honour of Mbuya Hilda Mutukumira, who despite her polio inflicted physical disability and lack of formal academic education, rose above her limitations to become a mother of two and inspiring community leader.

This program is the most straight forward way to demonstrate our intentions in the area with immediate impact. It allows us to establish trusting connections with the community and local schools and show a track record of reliability. Once this is established, we can challenge the status quo and focus on remedying underlying causes preventing girls achieving their life dreams.

Partner schools

Emmanuel High School

A beacon for the local area.

Ranked as one of Zimbabwe’s top 20 schools,
Emmanuel High School is innovative to the core. The school dreams of providing quality education to all regardless of their background, and plays a valuable role in its community.

Emmanuel’s students learn the importance of
ingenuity, resourcefulness and entrepreneurship. The school runs an animal breeding program in which animals are raised and traded in order to sustain the boarding school. But in rural Zimbabwe, resources are expensive, and many
locals cannot afford the schools basic fees.

Emmanuel’s reputation and reach into neighbouring villages enables us to work beyond its borders, making it a vital conduit for our ability to help in Zimbabwe.

Ruwangwe High School

A triumph of community spirit.

Built by members of the community and the students themselves, Ruwangwe High School was originally intended to be part of the public school system. When the government was unable to continue supporting Ruwangwe, it was entrusted back to the generous locals (RG: local community) who laid it’s foundations by hand. This community continues to be fundamental to Ruwangwe, pooling their resources to maintain the school.

Due to its remote location and limited resources, Ruwangwe lacks many vital facilities. Not registered as an exam venue, it is unable to offer O, or A-Level testing, meaning its students cannot complete their secondary education at the school. Ruwange educates many students who cannot afford its minimal fees, which takes a toll on the schools’ facilities.

The Gomo Foundation assists with funding, allowing Ruwangwe to maintain the provision of rudimentary education. This short term funding is part of our long-term commitment to see Ruwange flourish with facilities which will allow students to complete secondary education.
