Divide and Conquer


not looking good...

Take a look at the latest article from The Economist about Zimbabwe. It isn't looking good for our friends there...

But I refuse to give up hope, and I hope you will join me in supporting Matopo Primary School, whether in thought or deed!

I don't have any news, as communication is terribly difficult at the moment. Patson cannot send emails unless he gets a ride into town. I'm just hoping they are managing to hold on.

thank you for your words of encouragement!

I've been in touch with Verity, the South African woman whose blog is linked below. She's been so kind and encouraging, and I'm looking forward to keeping in contact with her about our experiences in Zimbabwe.

I've also received warm words from Jeb, one of the makers of the wonderful video about Zimbabwe which appears as well on this blog. If you haven't seen it yet, I recommend taking a few moments to have a look.

It's so fantastic to be able to reach people this way--I can't thank you enough!

News from Zimbabwe on the other hand is far from hopeful--everybody is waiting in trepidation for the outcome of the March elections.

Another Zimbabwe Blog

My attention was just called to a blog from a lady (South African) teaching in Zimbabwe.

She shows in her posts the daily life and problems she confronts.
