“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:

  • There was no any strike of teachers during the school year 2019-2020
  • There was no any case of COVID-19 among the students and teachers
  • 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
  • 46 students girls and boys will graduate in October 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.

Iwacu Kazoza School current needs for the school year 2020-2021:

  • To rehabilitate Iwacu Kazoza School, complete the unfinished sections of the school building construction, furnish the school with more student’s desks: $15,206
  • The Installation of Solar System Panels: $3,275

 

  • Student’s books and notebooks, chalks and administration materials: $3,197
  •  

The total Funds needed: $15,206+$3,275+$3,197= $21,678

DO NOT GET TIRED OF DOING GOOD!!

                             DO NOT GET TIRED OF DOING GOOD!!

We won’t cease advocating for those in need until they are resettled and have a shelter where they can live with their families IN HOPE AND SECURITY.

Let us no become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

As informed you in my previous reports, some of the survivors of Carama flooding are still living in the remains and others are still living in displacement camps; today they feel like abandoned survivors, waiting for a help from people who care to make them smile again and be resettled in their own homes. Remember, during the Bujumbura flooding, one couple lost their 6 children, killed by torrential rains and over 100 people died. The current living situation of those families is becoming more horrible, due to the lack of food to eat and shelter. As they continue to live in the remains of the houses destroyed by floods, they are afraid that any time, they can fall on them and be killed.

To build one home it costs $998, a home that can accommodate a family of 7 to 10 people. . A home is one of the most important things which contribute to the good living and security of a human being. Until this time I am writing this report, around $1,500 have been donated for this project and one house has been built.

As we continue to share the needs of Carama Survivors, I continue to hope and believe that donors will consider making donations to this project, so that we can help the survivors of Carama rebuild their homes, in their own land and save their lives. Until this project is fully funded, we will be sending you regular reports about our work. You'll know what your donation has helped fund, what accomplishments we have achieved and what our current needs are.

Thank you so much for your consideration to help JRMD make a difference in Carama survivor community in Burundi, Africa.

“Be the kind of person who dares to face life’s challenges and overcome them rather than dodging them". - Roy T. Bennett-

The terrifying times in which we live, times that the entire humanity is suffering today due to COVID -19. We are all facing difficult times; the Coronavirus-19 pandemic is a tremendous challenge for the entire World, for all people worldwide, and for our common home. Yet this crisis may be an opportunity to start anew. It 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 in which we may be. NEW WAYS and NEW WAYS AGAIN and AGAIN, because in whatever situation that we may be, LIFE continues.

Today our relatives and very close friends and people around are ill due to this Coronavirus-19 pandemic. To deal with a such situation requires courageous and patient people. During this time I am writing this message, some of our donors have Coronavirus, have lost their works, businesses, freedom to move from one place to another one and live in isolation situation! We are facing difficult moments and times. The COVID-19 health and humanitarian crisis is a very serious global concern.

Do not be discouraged when things do not go as you had planned, because what is not possible today, will be possible tomorrow; knowing that there is wonderful joy ahead. 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!!

Despite this terrifying situation in which we live today, there is a hope:

  • In God’s protection
  • We are aware of the COVID-19 and know how dangerous it is for a human being “ In Kirundi we say that “ an appeared/seen stone while digging can not destroy a hoe”.
  • By following and obeying the instructions and advice given by medical personnel and those who have a good knowledge in this
  • By Accepting to lose your freedom and maintaining your self control for your good and the community around you and beyond
  • By Caring for your self and others as well, but sometimes this requires to risk your life in order to save the lives of others.

If you have been supporting an orphaned and underprivileged child, providing education, hungry people, providing medical care of those in need, please continue according to the best of your abilities, even though this seems difficult, even impossible to make it   during a such situation!! I am very thankful to our donors and friends, and friends of friends who continue to support our ministry/work during this uncertain times.

To donate now, please click on the following link:

https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/providing-shelters-to-100-widows-in-buganda/

This is the time to show our solidarity with one another according to the best of our abilities during this terrifying times in which we are today.

Yes, there is a hope to continue to live despite COVID-19. COVID-19. It will finish! It will end!!
