The Hide Community Trust supports Chezhou Primary School, which is located on the outskirts of Hwange National Park and serves 305 children ages 4 through 13 years old. The school is trying hard to keep itself afloat but struggling due to the many difficulties they are faced with. We hope to support them through tourism to help alleviate and uplift them from their difficulties and to ensure these children receive a better education. We would be grateful for any support given.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
