Meet Polite one of our beneficiaries .

POLITENESS NYERE – Our feature student is Politeness Nyere who graduated last year with a first class degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management from the University of Zimbabwe. Polite as she is affectionately known by her peers,  is a role model  and an inspiration to the girls supported by Tariro .

Politeness was born on the 18th of May 1994 in Mhondoro. She stayed in Mhondoro until 2006 when her mother passed on. She did her primary school at St Michaels Primary School in Mhondoro. After the passing on of her mother, she moved to Masvingo to stay with her uncle and the arrangement did not work out until she moved to Harare to stay with her father in Highfield, Harare. Her father who had now remarried, was unemployed and he struggled to pay her fees. She had episodes where she was sent home from school because of failure to pay fees. Polite was identified as a child in difficult circumstances by the then Tariro Trust Coordinators Denver and Nyasha who spoke to her father about helping her. Jennifer the founder of Tariro visited her place in Highfield for assessment and she was admitted into the Tariro Trust program. Tariro Trust then paid her fees from Form 2 to 4 at UMAA Institute in Marondera. Tariro Trust provided her with stationery, sanitary wear, groceries and uniforms. Upon completion of her Ordinary level studies and passing with 9 subjects, Mr Kundiona ,  the founder of UMAA institute   volunteered to pay half of her tuition  fees at UMAA Institute for her  Advanced Level studies. She passed her Advanced Level  with 13 points . She enrolled at the University of Zimbabwe where she enrolled for a degree in tourism and hospitality management. She did very well at the University of Zimbabwe and recently graduated with a first class degree. She is a good example to other beneficiaries as they look up to her. Polite enjoys the educational camps offered by Tariro Trust and wishes that they continue offering them. She is very grateful to Tariro Trust and its supporters for the support she got. Without Tariro she would not have completed her education. She hopes Tariro will continue supporting more girls. Polite as a way of paying back to Tariro , she  has volunteered to mentor other girls within Tariro.
