October 2018 Zimpeto Child Reintegration Program Update
A Reintegration Story:
Moisais Ngungane came to the Zimpeto centre in 2000 because he was an orphan and no one in his family could care for him. He lived in the centre until 2004, when he was chosen to go and live in a new project that a missionary had set up in a suburb called Machava. This was a house for older youth with a vision to prepare them for life in the community.
When it was time for him to leave this project he went to live with his older brother in the suburb of ‘Mahotas’ in their own house that was financed by a missionary. He continued to come to the centre to tutor centre children and enable them to learn.
Moisais completed primary school (grade 1 -7) at the centre. He then went on to complete his highschool years of study in the city and then entered university to study to be a teacher of mathematics. He took 5 years to complete his study, and during this time he was supported financially by funds from Iris Ministries Canada and from a small offering for tutoring the children. He continued to live in the same house with his brother.
Moisais completed his study at the end of 2005, and was employed by the centre high school as a teacher of mathematics commencing in 2006. Moisais continues to live with his brother.
According to the headmaster of our school, Moisais he is one of the best teachers in the school. He is reliable and has a passion to see the children learn.
Well done Moisais!!
