Congratulations to Trish Gonde who won $100 on our @alleviatepoverty instagram challenge towards school fees. Her recipient for the $100 was Tinashe Mpofu of Bulawayo. Tinashe is a Form 3 student at Milton High School. We wish him well in his studies.

In 2022, PAIA sponsored 8 students from Matabeleland who could not attend school due to lack of funds to pay school fees. The students attend Hadane Secondary School, Tohwe Secondary School and MIlton High School. The children's families expressed their gratitude and relief that their children are now able to attend school. Some of the students were not able to access their high school results due to non-payment of fees. Being able to access their exam results means that they can pursue other avenues, like attend college or find jobs. PAIA was working in partnership with Khanya (Be the Light) on this project.
It is our aim to partner with other not-for-profit organizations to bring about change in the world.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we haven't been able to host Hoops for Loops this year. We will have something going as soon things become safe. We are also expecting to expand and offer more services in Sudbury, Ontario. Please keep checking back to see the new services offered and when they will commence.

On June 30th, 2018 we held a Hoops for Loops basketball tournament to help raise funds for our breakfast program for schools in ZImbabwe. Despite bad weather, our young Sudbury basketball superstars came out and together we raised $300. We would also like to thank Sudbury Tourism for donating backpacks, Kayla's Slime Booth helped us raise $50 towards our breakfast programs. Parchem Screenprinting donated items for our silent auction.

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.

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.
