“The school year 2019-2020 Report”
The terrifying times in which we live today, times that the entire humanity is suffering
due to COVID-19 requires new solutions: new ways of living; new ways of working and handling things; new ways of behaving; new ways of dealing with whatever situation that may be resulted by COVID-19. Remember, we only need courage and patience when things do not go well; when we face life challenges. Because of HOPE in us to overcome them we remain courageous and Patient!!NEW WAYS and NEW WAYS AGAIN and AGAIN, because in whatever situation that we may be, LIFE continues.
“Be the kind of person who dares to face life’s challenges and overcome them rather than dodging them”. - Roy T. Bennett-
Providing education and life skills will save the lives of thousands of orphans, street children and children from needy families in Cibitoke, who could not have access to education without donations from friends and friends of friends. This is about to help the above mentioned children to prepare and experience a NEW LIFE, NEW FAMILY, NEW SOCIETY by giving them an opportunity to have right to education. Iwacu Kazoza School is a NEW HOPE FOR TODAY and TOMORROW’S GENERATION for the children of Ruhagarika village, surrounding areas and beyond.
During the school year 2019-2020, with the help of JRMD and Iwacu Kazoza School donors, Iwacu Kazoza School provided education to510unprivileged and orphaned children from Ruhagarika village, surrounding areas and beyond. The school provided jobs to 32 teachers and school administration staff. If one person was to try do this work alone, it would have been impossible. I am very thankful to our donors and friends, and friends of friends who are making their donations to help JRMD continue to provide education to the unprivileged kids, schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School.
Our success during the school year 2019-2020:

- Students enjoyed much the results of exams and school year 2019-2020
- Students were very attentive and committed to the lessons in classrooms
- Education was provided as planned from the school year 2019-2020

If one person was to try do this work alone, it would have been impossible. I am very thankful to our donors and friends, and friends of friends who are making their donations to help JRMD continue to provide education to the unprivileged kids, schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School. This was only possible by joining hands together to build the society and the world we want, that each one of us is longing to belong to and live in. Today, Iwacu Kazoza School is counted as one of the best schools in Cibitoke province even in the country of Burundi, of the schools providing qualitative education. Students, parents and people like Iwacu Kazoza School. This is a good result of your work and our work together. Let us together give thanks, glory and honor to God, the Creator. We give thanks to our donors and GlobalGiving for making possible the education of these children, who could not have access to education without your financial help and prayers
Providing education to the underprivileged and orphaned children will help them test to the good things that the World has to offer.
Ou failure during the school year 2019-2020:
- Due to the lack of funds, teachers’ salaries were not paid in total during the school year 2019-2020. We still owe them $2,845.
- Lack of student’s books and materials
- Lack of student’s desks and computers
During the school year 2019-2020, teachers were made by men and women, well educated, available, committed to teach and serve. The students were engaged and eager learners.
I am very grateful and appreciative to each one of our donors, friends and friends of friends who made possible the 510unprivileged children to have access to education during the school year 2012-2013. May God continue to bless each one of you in a very special way.
