Our mantra as a Ministry is that education can’t wait and therefore we will continue to provide school out of school. Education has to continue even during the lockdown. The education system is very important as everyone in the economy has gone through our Ministry. We are the ones who build the economy that is why we have these radio lessons and other learning models that we are working on.
The Ministry in collaboration with UNICEF, ZBC and UNDP is currently providing Grade one to Grade 7 lesson on ZBC’s Radio Zimbabwe, Power FM, Classic 263 and NFM Radio stations.
