Fort Usher School – Zimbabwe

                                 Fort Usher 2023-2024


Our Christmas Enterprise day this year raised £500 and welcomed 50+ adults into school to work alongside the children.


We were lucky enough to have a live video call with Willard (ACET link).  As well as hearing a little bit about his role within ACET and Fort Usher, each class was able to ask a question about life at Fort Usher to gain a deeper understanding about the life children live there.


We learned that some of the children are orphans and live in homes where they are looked after with other orphans.  We were also shocked to find out that some of the children didn't have any footwear and that snakes were a risk to everyone when they are playing outside.

Dear Mrs Shore,

I can confirm receipt of the £479.80 gift, towards the work of the Matilda Project at Fort Usher school, from the St Andrew’s school community. What a fantastic idea to hold an Easter Enterprise Day. We love the sound of all the tasty treats the children made. Please pass on our sincere thanks to all the children, parents, staff and friends of St. Andrew's. Your generous gift will help enormously to support the breakfast club and new waterhole.

Kind regards,

A small amount of rain fall has been reported but not enough to stop crops failing.

Fort Usher has asked for your prayer support to bring much needed rain as well as funds to drill a successful borehole.
