IWACU KAZOZA SCHOOL_A NEW HOPE FOR UNPRIVILEGED CHILDREN

Because of your donations, Iwacu Kazoza School continues to provide education to the unprivileged children and the school is counted  among the best schools providing  qualitative education in the region.  This is a good result of your work and our work together. We give thanks to our donors for making possible the education of these children, who could not have access to education without your financial help. Iwacu Kazoza School is a NEW HOPE FOR THE UNPRIVILEGED CHILDREN IN BURUNDI, AFRICA.

From July 2013 – March 2015, 476 donations were made, totaling  $68,812  made  by 194 donors.  5 of the 194 donors are making their donations on monthly bases, through GlobalGiving.

Currently, the school is providing education to 495 unprivileged children, with   28 teachers and school administration staff. To finish the school year 2014-2015, we need to raise  $16,380, so that we can  pay our teachers’ salaries for February-July 2015.

TUESDAY, APRIL 14, 2015, IS MATCHING DONATIONS DAY

Donations made to Iwacu Kazoza School on Tuesday, April 14,   will be matched by Microsoft at 50%, up to $1,000 per donor per project.  There is $100,000 for matching  and prizes ranging from $5,000 to $1,000,  will be given to 5 projects based on donors’ uniqueness. Matching donations will begin at 06:00 AM PST / 09:00:00 AM EST  and ends at 08:59:59  PM 11:59:59 EST or when funds runs out.

Most matching funds are GONE within the first 10 minutes ; so  donors should   have their  information set up to make their  donations  within the first couple minutes!!!!

I am very grateful and appreciative to each one of our donors, friends and friends of  friends who continue to enable Iwacu Kazoza School to provide education to the unprivileged children in Burundi. May God continue to bless each one of you in a very special way.

SURVIVORS OF CARMA FLOODING STILL NEED YOUR HELP

THE SURVIVORS OF CARMA FLOODING STILL NEED YOUR HELP

As informed you in my last report, some of the survivors of Carama flooding are still living in the remains and others are still living in displacement camps; but they are still hoping  that one day, some people who care, will 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 much rain and  lack of food to eat.  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.

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, only $210 have been donated for this project.

As we continue to share the needs of Carama Survivors, I do 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.

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.

A NEW HOME FOR A WIDOW FAMILY

A NEW HOME FOR A WIDOW FAMILY

 This is the 4th house that has been completed of the 100 houses we plan to build for 100 widow families in Buganda.  96  widow families and orphans, still need shelters, where they can live in security and peace. Bricks made and houses that have been already built at the stage of roofing are being destroyed by rains. We continue to hope that donors and friends will enable us to provide shelters to those widows and complete the construction of 100 homes, as it has been planed.

A home is one of the most important things which contribute to the good living of a human being. That’s why at JRMD, building homes for the survivors of the war and needy families, is one of the strategies to promote and achieve peace, and give youth a voice and right place in the society.  Providing shelters to widows, orphans and needy families will help reduce the expansion of AIDS and the mortality, occasioned by the present conditions of living of thousands of widows and needy families in Burundi.

We continue to hope that donors and friends will enable us to provide shelters to the other 96 widow families and make them smile again. A smile that gives hope for tomorrow.

Until our 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. Donation can be made through the following link: http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/providing-shelters-to-100-widows-in-buganda/

I am very grateful and appreciative to each one of our donors, friends and friends of friends who continue to make the realization of this project possible so that each of the   100 widow families can have a home, where she can live with her children.  

May God continue to bless each one of our donors, friends and friends of friends in a very special way.
