On September 22, 2012, GLEF and the Portland Mutare Sister City Association (PMSCA) participated in a donation ceremony, symbolic of a new partnership. PMSCA connected GLEF to St. Werburgh’s Primary in Zimbabwe. The school’s kindergarten and special needs classrooms need renovating. Also, the teachers need supplies that better serve the education of the 112 three to five year old children (62 boys, 50 girls.)
Founder Kilong Ung independently raised $800, and the GLEF board voted to elevate the donation, bringing the total contribution to the requested $1,000. The money will pay for paint, furniture, and speciality learning and teaching equipment.
