We believe that an early intervention programme for children with special needs helps build the foundation for a successful schooling career, and life. The Silver Linings Nursery School accommodates children aged between 4 to 7 years old.
The Silver Linings Junior School caters for up to 15 students at a time from the ages of 6 to 12 years old. There is a holistic balance of group class tuition, focused one on one academic instruction as well as weekly therapies and extra-curricular activities.
The Silver Linings Senior School teachers and staff are expertly trained to guide the pupils through puberty and encourage further independence and maturity. The school currently accommodates 17 pupils ranging from the ages of 13 to 18 years old.
The well-respected Sunshine Zimbabwe Project was established in January 2011 providing education and vocational training to adolescents and adults with an array of special needs in Harare.
Helping Children & Adults Achieve to the Best of Their Ability
The Silver Linings Trust, through the Silver Linings School and Sunshine Project, offers access to broad, balanced and relevant education and vocational training, using a wide range of teaching styles to equip the children and adults with necessary skills. We offer a caring and supportive environment that promotes self-esteem and confidence, as well as encouraging some level of independent living.
"EDUCATING Special Children for LIFE in today’s world"
“She started off at a normal school in Chiredzi. She completed grades 0, 1 and 2 with not much progress in those three years as she could not read or write. We then moved to Harare in 2012 and she joined the Silver linings team and we have seen such a big difference, she can now read and write, do math sums such as multiplication, addition, subtraction, division as well as being able to tell the time. She has also managed to be involved in a lot of extra curricular activities such as dancing, golf, horse riding, swimming and flower arranging competitions and enjoys coloring.” Mrs Mungwadzi
