TFP has been so busy over the last few months that we are hugely behind on our blog posts and we apologise for this. But we are VERY excited to inform you of all that has been going on. As Zimbabwe starts a new chapter with the celebrations that took place last week, our biggest news is that TFP is also starting a new chapter with a new leader. We are thrilled to introduce you to our new Executive Director, Jess Lovemore, who has joined us as the leader of our organisation as of 1 November 2017. Jess is a Zimbabwean through and through with a huge passion for the children of our country. She has been working with children for a number of years now, starting her own ECD centre just outside Harare. She brings with her vast experience in ECD as well as a love for children and people.
Jess has already started to lead with passion and dedication. She is supporting Martha and our ladies and gents on the ground to see the service that we offer improved day by day. She has introduced a wonderful English teacher to the centre who has been to visit and has started teaching our volunteer teachers how to improve the English of our children. She spends time with our volunteers, encouraging them and helping them with all that they need.
Jess has driven our Christmas shoe project so well that we have shoes for all 300 children that we have supported this year as well as enough money to buy them treats for their graduation and Christmas party to take place next Tuesday 5 December 2017.
We look forward to sending out a new blog in the next few days after our graduation and Christmas party but for now, we just wanted to introduce Jess to you and to say thank you, Jess, for all the hope that you are bringing to TFP. We so look forward to what 2018 brings for you and for all of us at TFP. Here’s to a great year!!
