In the context of the Africa´s Day, the Chargé d'Affaires a.i. from the Embassy of Cuba in Zimbabwe, Counsellor Yoisy Ford García in the company of Mr. Lovemore Gwati, member of the Zimbabwe-Cuba Friendship Association, paid a visit to the University of Scientific Education of Bindura. The Cuban representative was received by the Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Eddie Mwenje and other members of the institution's management.
Cuba began cooperation in the educational sector with Zimbabwe after its independence in 1980. The first group of young Zimbabweans left for Havana in 1985 to study science careers. The Southern African country needed technicians and professionals to achieve the desired socioeconomic and political development in the initial moments of its independence, for which teachers and health professionals were trained.
Bindura University in Mashonaland Central is the fruit of bilateral cooperation between the two countries. This has been the paradigm of our cooperation in the education sector, created to develop human capital in Zimbabwe, currently a Strategic Goal for National Development of 2030. Soon Cuban professionals will arrive at this educational institution to continue contributing to the educational development of this sister nation.
