Batanai Muyamure would like to thank you for your valued contribution and support. The non-profit is still underway in raising the full amount for the borehole. On the 14th of May Eden Lang held a concert in association with Moto Republik called the Rivers Flow Fundraising concert, named after the song she wrote for Batanai Muyamure called “Rivers Flow.”
Other musicians and performing artists participated such as Chengeto, Bryan K, Oxzy, Reich and Yanta Limey. We also enjoyed live music from the performance band “Fab Ovation”. We were joined by MC Curtly Gwindi as he co-hosted the event with Natasha Burnett. Unfortunately, ASAPH was not able to attend and perform due to unforeseen circumstances. We were also not able to film the event due to the loss of a camera owned by our sponsor, Sendittoo. We were honored by the presence of Batanai’s Chair lady Amina Mohommed and Treasurer Lucy. The attendance was small as we had 57 people in the audience, but those who came were very enthusiastic and enjoyed the concert.
At the concert we managed to raise an additional $538 USD from ticket sales and donations. This amount was added to the $1,780 USD previously raised, which brings our total borehole fund to $2,318 USD. We have enough to sink the borehole, but not yet enough to put a pump.
The total cost of the borehole and pump is $4,637, which means we have an additional $2,319 left to raise. Batanai would like to thank all the donors who are making this project possible.
Batanai Muyamure recently purchased a property of land 25 acres large in Chiundura, Gweru. We are currently seeking to sink a borehole on the property so that we can begin agricultural projects that will assist in providing food for the orphans and vulnerable children under our care, as well as raising funds for their school fees. We will also allow the children under our care and the people in the community free access to the bush pump so that there is less use of the infected rivers.
In order to sink the borehole and build a bush pump, we need to raise $4,637 US Dollars. Thanks to kind donors, we have raised $900 towards this goal.

One of our goals this year is to raise funds for all 60 children listed in our organization. Each child’s school fees are $12 a term at Gambiza Primary, and we are striving toward paying their fees for the year.

This week, the organization was pleased to receive a donation of stationary and school fees from one of our honorary members. You could say it was drop in the ocean, but it was a drop all the same. There are children who received soap, books, pens cello-tape, rubbers, clothes, and pencils which will come in handy next year for the new school term.
