IT IS ONLY POSSIBLE THROUGH PARTNERSHIP

                                          IT IS ONLY POSSIBLE THROUGH PARTNERSHIP

I am very thankful to our donors and friends, and friends of friends who are making their donations to help JRMD provide education to  452 kids, schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School. If one person was to try do this work alone, it would be impossible. This is possible through partnership and joining hands together to build the society and the world we want that each one of us is longing to see and live in.

Because of your donations, the school was able to purchase a part of  the students’ and teachers’ books. This  enables Iwacu Kazoza School to continue provide a good education to those parents, leaders and business people of tomorrow. At the time I am writing this report,$12,845 has been raised and still need to raise $78,747 to cover the school budget for  the school year 2013-2014.

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.

I know the economy is tough, so thank you so much  for continuing to invest your hard-earned money on our cause. Please consider telling your friends and family about our project - share the link on your blogs or social networks, use the tell-a-friend feature on the project page to email your network, or just bring us up in conversation: http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/providing-education-to-450-youths-in-ruhagarika/

I take this opportunity to inform our donors that our  project  linked on GlobalGiving website is  eligible to participate in Microsoft's matching campaign, "GivingTuesday", December 3rd, 2013: http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/providing-education-to-450-youths-in-ruhagarika/ . There will be $250,000 matching funds available from Microsoft on December 3rd.

The "GivingTuesday" campaign will begin at 9:01 a.m. Pacific Time/ noon Eastern Standard time, December 3, 2013 and will end December 4th at 8:59 a.m. PT and at 11:59 a.m. ET, or whenever matching funds run out.  Matching is applied at 100% for every $1 up to $1,000 per donor per project.

Only online donations (credit card or PayPal) are eligible for matching . Donations made by gift card, check, or text-to-give are not eligible for matching.  We encourage our donors and friends of JRMD/YRWD  to get donations in early because matching funds are likely to run out before the end of the matching period.

Buganda Home Building Report

                                  Buganda home building project Report


There is NO way to promote peace, reconciliation, education, development, safety, health in and among the families who do not have shelter/home. 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 in Burundi and needy families, is one of the strategies to promote and achieve peace in a wounded  nation and community by ethnic war and poverty.

The house that we build for a family,  has 45 square meters (485 square feet). This house can/does accommodate a family of 7 to 10 people. It has 2 doors, 4 windows, a sitting room and 2 bedrooms.  We stucco/plaster the house with cement, to protect the house from rainwater. To build one home it costs $998.

As you can see from the pictures, with the  help of JRMD home building team, 68 of 100 families made by  widows and needy families in Buganda village, have already made enough bricks to build a house  and 45 of the 100 homes to be built there are at the stage of roofing.

As soon, as funds to purchase construction materials are raised, with the help of JRMD home building team, the work of roofing houses already built at the stage of roofing will start.  Until this time I am writing this report, only $10  has been donate for this project,  within a period of 3 month the project has been posted.

With Gifts for Good Campaign that will run November 20 – December 31, 2013 - Year-End  Campaign starting December 1st - December 31st, 2913, when  GlobalGiving will be offering NINE bonus awards to the projects that raise the most money from their supporters in GlobalGiving’s first-ever Year-End Campaign and Recurring Donation Match - During the last 12 days of the year, when GlobalGiving will be offering a one-time 100% match on all new recurring donations up to $200 per donor,  December 20 - December 31, 2013, we hope to raise enough money to finish the construction of 100 houses  to be built for 100 widow and needy families, in Buganda village.

Iwacu Kazoza School Providing Education

                                         Iwacu Kazoza School

                “Providing Education to 452 Children in Ruhagarika”

                                                      During the school year 2013-2014


Mr. Nicizanye has three children schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School, he said: “If this school could not have been here, my three children could not have a chance to go to school.  Now I can hope to see them complete  their education and have a good job that will enable them to help themselves and care for our poor family in the future”.

During this school year 2013-2014, Iwacu Kazoza School is providing education to 452 children, from the village of Ruhagarika and surrounding areas.  As you can see from this video, posted on the following link, most of these children schooling at above mentioned school come from very needy families: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_ZSxA6BcwA&feature=youtu.be

This school year 2013-2014, Iwacu Kazoza School opened, on September 9, 2013. In total, we have 452  students for Primary School   “Grade 1-5”  and for Secondary School “Grade 7-10”. With $8,821 raised during “Give for Youth Challenge”, JRMD was able to pay a part of teachers salaries, purchase some of the students and teachers books and provide school uniforms to 220 of the 452 students, schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School.  As you can see  from different pictures attached to this report, some of the students do not yet have school uniforms.

I am very  grateful to each one of JRMD/YRWD’s donors and friends, and friends of friends who enabled JRMD/YRWD to earn a permanent spot on GlobalGiving Foundation. As a result of that, JRMD/YRWD has
three projects posted on GlobalGiving website: http://www.globalgiving.org/donate/15413/jeunesse-en-reconstruction-du-monde-en-destruction-jrmd/

Today, the school has 18 teachers, committed and well educated to provide a good education to those students from
needy families, who could not have access to education without the help of JRMD/YRWD’s donors and friends, and friends of friends. May God bless each one of them in a very special way.

During the school year 2012-2013,  Iwacu Kazoza School provided education to  248 students for Primary School
(Grade 1-4) and Secondary School (Grade 7-9).  During this school year 2013-2014, we urgently need to roof 2 additional classrooms for grade 5 and 10. Currently, the students of grade 5 and 10 come at school from   noon to 5:30 pm, which is not fair. The two classroom are at the stage of roofing: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151530387101218&set=a.10150191650251218.313510.238561311217&type=1&theater

I would like to inform our donors and friends that we have been given  a great matching opportunity through
GlobalGiving! They are offering a 30% match on all donations up to $1,000. The  campaign begins at 9:00 pm Pacific Time on October 8 and 12 am Eastern Time on October 9. These funds will make a great difference as we continue to construct an orphanage that will accommodate 160  orphans  and  the school is educating  452 children attending the Iwacu Kazoza School: http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/providing-education-to-450-youths-in-ruhagarika/

I do not want to finish writing this report without expressing my thanks to the leadership of  GlobalGiving Foundation for connecting us with donors at worldwide level and serve together  our community in Burundi, Africa.

With much thanks and appreciation,

Prosper Ndabishuriye

Project Leader and General Coordinator/JRMD
