Education International has been contacted by several of its member organisations in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi expressing deep concern over the plight of their members in the areas affected by cyclone Idai. Many lives have been lost.
ZIMTA and PTUZ from Zimbabwe, and ONP from Mozambique are asking for support for the teachers, their families, students and school communities that have been impacted by the cyclone - one of the worst natural disasters ever in the southern African region.
We appeal to all member organisations to contribute to the Idai Solidarity Fund to assist affected colleagues, their families and school communities.
EI will support and work with its affiliates in Zimbabwe and Mozambique to ensure they are in a position to assist their members.
We also ask you to express your solidarity by sending letters of support directly to ZIMTA, PTUZ and ONP.
You can write to our members at the following addresses:
