Our Hoops for Loops Basketball tournament raised $450 towards school fees for our students who are in need. This means that about 8 of our 50 students will be able to attend school next term. On April 1st, 2018, some Sudbury youths brought their friends and registered their teams to play in the Hoops and Loops Basketball Tournament. I am very proud of our Sudbury youths for supporting this cause. Our next Hoops for Loops Basketball Tournament  will be on June 30th, 2018.

Shongamiti High School Initiative 2018

Posted on February 4, 2018 at 3:55 PM

More than 800 students at Shongamiti High School in Masvingo, Zimbabwe were fed breakfast by our team in January 2018. The team was so touched by the children's stories and we are motivated to change their lives for the better. These are children who walk more than 10km to school and they have to leave their houses at 3am inorder to get to school in time (7:00am). Some of these children walk barefooted to school and the positive energy they posess towards everything is really inspiring. We would like to help these children go to school and stay in school and excel in life.

July 2016
PAIA paid a visit to the rural area of Chibi in Masvingo and made some donations to children who came from less fortunate families. Donations of food and clothes were made and some children received assistance with school fees and uniforms. Please see Gallery for pictures of this visit.  The joy on the children's faces together with their parents was immeasurable. Looking forward to our other projects coming up.
