Germany Donates €10m For Schools In Cyclone Idai Affected Areas

The German government has donated €10 million through its development bank, KfW towards the second phase of the Education Development Fund (EDF), which seeks to improve access to quality education for Zimbabwean children.

The financial gift will be used to support Disaster Risk Reduction in the drought and cyclone-affected Districts in Zimbabwe. Minister of Primary and Secondary Education, Paul Mavima, had this to say:

The timely and immense support from Germany to Cyclone Idai emergency response resulted in minimum interruption of children’s schooling and we are pleased that this new funding will enable the Ministry to institutionalise disaster risk reduction and resilience building within our education system.

  1. That gift should be closely monitored

    Zanu has a tendency of misappropriating and misuse funding like this

    Germany should set stringent monitoring and evaluation mechanisms so that Zanu does not steal even one penny

    We are sick and tired of their corrupt deeds and not one is ever held accountable for the stealing of development funds

    Be on the lookout Zanu branded top of the range cars might be bought using this money
