Why

  • Would like to change lives in Zimbabwe and Africa as a whole through automotive technology training
  • There is currently NO automotive technology training institution in Zimbabwe
  • Zimbabwean Government recently banned the importation of used vehicles that are 10yrs and older to this current date, which has raised the demand for technicians who is trained in current technology.
  • The formal employment rate is currently just around 10% in Zimbabwe.
  • 90% of people are not formally employed but rely on informal trading.
  • 70% of unemployed constitute youths that is 35yrs and below
  • Would like to empower woman more as I was inspired by my mother’s story
  • My mother’s resilience and perseverance has motivated me to help woman become empowered through automotive training programs we will offer at IIATT.
  • The Iconic Nelson Mandela wants said, “ Education is the most powerful tool you can use to change the world”  he also said “ The power of education extends beyond the development of skills we need for economic success” 

HOW

  • We going to achieve this goal through the funding needed to build the school.
  • We have opened a Go-Fund-Me page for well-wishers to donate to this great cause and change hundreds of thousands of lives in Zimbabwe.
  • We have already covered about 70% of this whole project as we have bought most of the hand tools and some of the equipment, also bought the land on which this school is going to be built.  

WHERE

  • International Institute of Automotive Technology Training will be built in a low-density suburb called Mandara in the capital city Harare, Zimbabwe.

WHEN

  • International Institute of Automotive Technology Training will be built as soon as we raise enough money to begin construction and will be ready for enrolment in as early 3 weeks after completion of necessary rooms to start the training programs.
