Gifted Children Foundation (GCF) a registered Charitable Educational Institution is celebrating its fourth year of existence since its formation in 2015.
Speaking to Great Dyke News 24, Munyaradzi Hwengwere who is the patron and founder of the foundation said his dream is to see the vulnerable children succeeding in life despite their life circumstances.
“As Gifted Children, we are happy to celebrate our 4th year of existence, during the weekend and l met some of the children to hear their problems and what l can say is that all of them are very well.
“All of the children are underprivileged but that has not stopped them from being ambitious and confident of what they can achieve in life.
“For me, it was very important to meet them to give them some resources but beyond that l encouraged them that their life circumstances should not negatively affect their goals in life,” he said.
Gifted Children Foundation (GCF) is a registered Charitable Educational Institution which exists to identify and nurture students and promote effective, accessible and responsible education to all gifted and vulnerable children in the Great Dyke.
The Institution was founded by Munyaradzi and Emily Hwengwere in 2015 in honor of the late mother and philanthropist, Gogo Kudzai Hwengwere who used her entire earnings from Leo`s Shop in Zvishavane to support vulnerable and gifted children. The Foundation was registered with the government of Zimbabwe as a Trust in 2018.
The Gifted Children Foundation Scholarship programme is also a combination of financial support for talented and vulnerable children and a high-quality leadership development programme, with the intention of building exceptional leadership capacity in Zimbabwe and beyond. The Foundation is currently supporting 35 talented and vulnerable children in the Great Dyke.
