Beulah Heights Secondary School, Mutare, Zimbabwe
During 2007 work progressed very slowly to build the first two classrooms. The supply of basic materials in Zimbabwe was limited and work that should have taken weeks took months. Finally, in January 2008 the school opened - but not in the new buildings. The classrooms were not finished until July later that year. The photo below show the long awaited furniture arriving in July 2008
The city of Mutare is the third largest city in Zimbabwe. It's population keeps growing in organised housing areas. One such area, Chikanga, now houses 25,000 people. It does not have a single secondary school. Some pupils can get into a school for a place in a double session school. This is where the day is split and one school full of pupils attend for one half of the day and a different school full of pupils attend for the other half day. They get half time education which is better than no education.

The changing fortunes of Zimbabwe have made it very difficult for the work to continue with any real pace. After the elections in 2008 all schools closed and only reopened in the first half of 2009. Aid2Africa continues to provide support to the school by sending money to help towards the school fees of the children.
Additional funding is sent when possible to provide some additional food for the children. Some of this comes from generous people who specifically want to help feed the children
