project hero: takundwa gumbomunda
a new Cooking Hut for the children of chimudoro school
The "commute" to attend Chimudoro Primary School in Rundogo Zimbabwe, hours from the nearest stores and towns, is often a long walk for the young children, and the day is long at school. The school leadership realized the need for feeding especially the very young pupils at lunchtime and needed the facilities to provide. This is the rural style cooking hut that is the Kitchen for the school, built by Takundwa.
