Greetings Everyone!

Our Annual African Art Sale is coming up this weekend!  We are excited to feature a multiple of new pieces that we brought back from our most recent trip to Zimbabwe. We are also excited to share many of our latest accomplishments with you at our dinner. The dinner tickets are almost all sold, so now is the time to secure yourselves a spot! See below for details. 

 

We have also been working hard throughout the summer filling another container, which will be shipped soon and will be waiting for us upon our arrival in Zimbabwe in January. We will once again be converting the containers into a carpentry workshop and a complete sewing center for the 160 teens that are at a loss of what to do now they have finished school. In a market of 93% unemployment, hope is often lost. The two containers that we shipped this year are bringing new hope. God has answered many prayers and we have everything we need packed inside.
 
 Frank ,  Liz, Harry, Ross, and a new volunteer Glen  will have much work to accomplish in Zimbabwe.

 Thank you always for your support!  This year we want to replace the wooden school shacks with brick and mortar.  600 orphans and vulnerable children now attend this program that started with 9 hungry kids.  Can we count on you once again to support this encouraging project?

 Any questions email me  at zimbabwegecko@gmail.com 

 See you soon at our events I hope.   

 Thank you always for your support!

If you have returnable bottles that are accumulating in your home, and you just don't feel like sorting them, then we have the answer for you. The ZGS has an account with the White Rock Return It Depot at 3221 140 St, Surrey. You can just leave your bottles there, unsorted, and just say you want the proceeds to go to account #41;  they will do the rest!
