RISING Gospel artist Abraham Matuka has donated stationery to Kubatanai Primary School in Epworth under his Teen Rescue Mission after hosting a Back To School Orientation Party over the weekend.
Matuka who happens to be doing a promotional song about Zimbabwe’s tourism whose DVD is to be launched soon with 12 international artists extended a helping hand to the children of Epworth.
He donated textbooks, exercise books to all the children who attended the event.
Matuka said they chose to host the event in Epworth after seeing that the area had a lot of vulnerable children.
“I was moved after hearing that most children in Epworth cannot even make it to school with an exercise book and seeing then young you can tell that they are so intelligent. That made me see it fit to come in as Teen Rescue Mission and rescue these kids making sure that open school with exercise book and textbooks each.
“As an organization, it is one of our objectives that teens we target have access to education as we fight against young children sitting at home because at the end they will end up indulging in activities that destroy their lives,” he said.
Teen Rescue Mission had a powerful motivational moment with the children on the day where they spoke about focus and determination when the children go back to school.
“It was so inspiring to the children as we had other children from low-density suburbs coming to mix and mingle with those in Epworth. We wanted the children in Epworth to feel that being in Epworth is not being isolated,” said Matuka.
He thanked all the people who partnered with Teen Rescue Mission in food, transport and helping with all logistical issues making the event successful.
Reverend Masedza of Baptist Church in Epworth who graced the event spoke highly on Teen Rescue Mission saying the children in Epworth were exposed to drugs and early sexual activities and the coming in of Teen Rescue Mission is a blessing in the community.
