The Joy Education Trust (Jet),,

The immediate focus of the Joy Education Trust is Chimanimani Secondary School, where John and Joy Lowe spent their last years teaching. The school, which goes from Form I to 6, has an enrolment of 721 pupils, 355 of these girls. The school is a stones’ throw from Ngangu, the high density suburb of Chimanimani worst affected by the cyclone, which destroyed a number of teachers houses. Seven learners died during the cyclone. 100 learners lost their parents and all their possessions. 70% of learners are unable to afford the fees of RTG 150 per annum for Forms 1-4 and RTG 192 per annum for forms 5-6. Learners in debt are not able to take their exams, resulting in a high drop-out rate. In 2018 six young women dropped out of school due to teenage pregnancy.
