Manica Youth Assembly (MAYA), a community based organisation that advocates for good governance and environmental justice through volunteerism in local communities, last week joined the rest of the world in celebrating the International Day of Peace by giving back to the community.
MAYA donated a total of 100 library books to two local schools. 50 went to Chisamba Primary School with the other 50 going to Dangare Primary school in Mutare.
“It our culture as an organisation to give back to the community especially communities that raised us, those that support us, and those that are underprivileged in terms of resources”, says Tinashe Muzama, MAYA programs officer.“
The donation will go a long way in uplifting the children’s lives. I wish to thank the youth organisation for being kind hearted at a time when life is really tough out there”, said Mr Chikavhanga, Dangare primary school senior teacher.
Mrs Munyaradzi, the senior teacher at Chisamba Primary School thanked Maya for the kind book donation and hoping MAYA will do more for her learning institution.
International day of peace is celebrated every 21st September. This year’s theme was: “Recovering better for an equitable and sustainable world.
