PRESS RELEASE

Great Zimbabwe University to host inaugural Fundraising Dinner

MASVINGO, 25 AUGUST 2017 – Great Zimbabwe University will on Friday, 15 September 2017 host its inaugural Fundraising Dinner Dance. Vice President of the Republic of Zimbabwe Honourable E.D. Mnangagwa will be the Guest of Honour at the Fundraising event.

Confirming the date of the event, the Chairman of the Great Zimbabwe University Fundraising Committee Dr Andrew Chindanya said that after four years of massive growth and expansion, today Great Zimbabwe University stands at  the threshold of a historic moment as it embarks on another major leap forward. He said the new phase of Great Zimbabwe University’s growth and expansion will be spearheaded by stakeholder-driven resource mobilisation initiatives.  The stakeholder-driven resource mobilisation programmes are expected to develop the University at an unprecedented rate and in a short period of time.

The goal of the stakeholder-driven fundraising initiatives is to raise funds to provide support for capital projects, infrastructure, and academic priorities at the University.

The first of these initiatives is the hosting of a fundraising dinner dance by the University on September 15 2017 at the Great Zimbabwe Hotel in Masvingo where the University’s employees, students, Alumni and other stakeholders are being called upon to share a passion for the extraordinary university and the great journey it is embarking upon.

” While we have achieved a lot since 2012, there is much more to do as we march towards building a state of the art Main Campus at our natural home adjacent to the Great Zimbabwe National Monuments.

“We believe partnerships with our valued partners on such occasions and in such capital projects will firmly establish Great Zimbabwe University among world-class universities,” said Dr Chindanya.

Since  2012,  Great Zimbabwe University has transformed and developed itself into a well recognized and robust institution of higher learning in the country, region and internationally through the ingenuity and shrewdness of its University Council and Management.  With little resources at its disposal, the  University has been transformed from a single facility institution into a magnificent and vibrant multi-campus institution in just over four years.
