In 2017, PS Automation GmbH joint together with Schulhilfswerk für Afrika e.V. to improve the education of young girls in Zimbabwe.
Due to the weak infrastructure in Africa and the distance to schools, young girls are not able to attend a school without accommodation on the school campus. With an existing 65 beds in the girls` dormitory, Neshaya Secondary School in Hwange/Zimbabwe already started to take care of the problem. Nevertheless, since more than half of the 200 schoolgirls still need a place to stay, additional sleeping places are urgently needed.
With the financial support of PS Automation GmbH, it was possible to extend the dormitory by 50 additional beds. This project is already in the construction phase and the shell and roof have already been built. After the remaining building tasks are completed, the extended dormitory will be ready to be used in May 2018.
We look forward to giving 50 girls the opportunity to experience further education by engaging in this project.
