Iwacu Kazoza School Changing Lives Of
Underprivileged Children In Burundi
In a remote part of the little-known country of Burundi a school by the name of Iwacu Kazoza is changing the lives of some 500 students each year who would either have no education or have to walk hours to the nearest school. Chief of Ruhagarika Village where the school is located, Mr. Leonard Nijimbere, whose three children attend the school, has said that without Iwacu Kazoza School his children would not be able to get an education.
The school was founded in 2012 to provide state approved education to underserved children, many of whom are orphans. It is counted among the best schools in the province and the country based on the exceptional scores of 126 students who have graduated.
The school is located in the Ruhagarika village, in Cibitoke province, 32 miles north of Bujumbura, the Capital City. In addition to serving students, the school provides much needed employment in an area with few paying jobs. Thirty-two (32) people now have work which includes primary and secondary teachers, administrative staff and maintenance personnel.
The school budget is as follows:
Primary and Secondary Teachers $53,460
Teachers Books & school supplies $3,600
Desks, Chairs, equipment $6,000
Student family contribution ($16,620)
NET NEED USA Donors $46,440
We are most grateful for any donations and are in special need of continuing monthly donors to assure a sustaining base of funds.
With gratitude and Respect,
