Nhimbe’s Marimba Team Performs at Local Schools

Our Nhimbe Marimba team was invited to participate at the annual prize-giving day at two of our local primary schools visit homepage. Prize-giving days are an event held each year at schools in Zimbabwe to recognize the outstanding students. Some of our own Nhimbe students were among the recipients of the awards! Our boys and girls provided a marvelous performance! Normally they play marimba, sing, dance accompanied by drums and hosho. We were able to rent a truck for the cost of mileage reimbursement and get the marimbas moved easily. Not really sure how all of the children got to the schools but am assuming they walked since its a small truck. This great performance resulted in another invitation for the November 22nd at a Secondary school within about 20 kilometers from our Center. This will be another opportunity for the boys and girls to shine! We have written a grant requesting help with our Nhimbe marimba program from Zimfest Association and if we succeed we will be able to provide the marimbas with much needed restoration. Its very exciting to hear about the growth of the children and their ability to perform!
