Mosi-OA-Tunya High school became the latest addition to a list of beneficiaries of Love for Africa and Partners’ donation of a computer innovation centre whose construction is near completion.
The hub, which is set to unlock pupils’ digital edge, will serve as a research centre for various academic disciplines.
The Council-owned school is also aligning itself with the Local Authority’s upgrade into a City by providing improved learning standards at the institution.
With an estimated cost of US$400,000.00, the innovation hub would be the second in Victoria Falls after a similar setup was established at the Victoria Falls Primary School in July 2019.
The Mayor of Victoria Falls, His Worship Cllr Somveli Dhlamini commended Love for Africa for the timely donation. “Allow me to extend my warmest gratitude to Love for Africa and partners, the donors, for this thoughtful gesture.
“The innovation hub is a welcome addition to the town because the world is becoming digital and relevant people or students are those that will embrace the digital trends. Moreover, the COVID 19 pandemic has pushed organisations into the digital space for survival,” he added.
Speaking on behalf of donors, Blessing Munyenyiwa of Love for Africa revealed that the innovation hub would have a technical attendant on the donors’ payroll for six months after construction.
Mosi-Oa-Tunya has continued churning out virtuous results at both A and O levels, having most of its alumni claiming the totem post of mayorship as witnessed by the current Mayor and his two successive predecessors.
