IWACU KAZOZA SCHOOL YEAR 2017-2018

Iwacu Kazoza School got started from September 11, 2017, for the school year 2017-2018, with 497 students and most of them from very poor families and orphaned children.

Because of your continuing donations and your personal commitments, we have reached our goals. This not only means so much to me, but it especially means so much to the underprivileged children schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School, their parents and their teachers. Because of your donations, during the school years  2014-2015 and 2015-2016, IwacuKazoza School has been ranked #1 at the regional  level and #15 at the national level for providing  quality education in Burundi.  This is witnessed and confirmed by the results of national exams of the above-mentioned school years.

Until this time, we still need to purchase school supplies, buy additional student’s desks and repair the desks that are not in good condition. To meet this urgent need, we need friends and friends of friends to continue to help and enable Iwacu Kazoza School to provide education to the underprivileged children, help them prepare their future so that one day they will be able to help themselves and give back to their community and nation.

Every donation helps ensure that we can continue helping underprivileged children to have access to education.

Let us together continue to be a new hope for the underprivilege and orphaned children. Yes, WE CAN.

For JRMD and Iwacu Kazoza School,

A GREAT JOY AND HONOR OF SERVING AND HELPING!!

A GREAT JOY AND HONOR OF SERVING AND HELPING!!!

In helping and serving people, mostly those in great need, orphans, widows, etc …, I have discovered and continue to experience great joy and honor in serving those who need help and assistance.

Serving and Helping is an opportunity and privilege. It is a Win-Win Action. The outcome of serving and helping is Greater!! We gain back joy, blessings and honor. You feel Good because you are helping those in need to find a solution to their problems and those who are being helped feel good because they are getting help and solution to their problems.

Providing a home to a widow and needy family will help reduce the expansion of AIDS and the mortality of unprivileged children occasioned by the present conditions of their living. A home is one of the most important things that contribute to a good living of a human being. Until our project is fully funded, we will be sending you regular reports about our work.

A donation of $998 will build a house for a widow and needy family and make them smile again!!

The house that we build for a family, has 45 square meters (485 square feet). This house 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. Stucco is done on the external walls of the house. They cook outside of the house in a small kitchen that they build themselves. We also help the beneficiary of the house build a toilet, outside of the house. The children sleep together in one bedroom and sitting room and then the parents sleep in another bedroom. Most of the people we help build homes, they sleep on mats on which they sit on during a day time. When we are able, we do provide simple mattresses, blankets and sheets to the families that we help build homes. One simple mattress does cost between $35 and a pair of sheets and blankets costs $25.

Your donation will make a huge difference in the lives of those in great need. They will know that there are people who care for them.

ONE DAY THEY WILL HAVE ACCESS TO SHELTER AND FOOD

#1: Life is very hard

ONE DAY THEY WILL HAVE ACCESS TO SHELTER AND FOOD

Despite the suffering situation of lack of shelter and food that the survivors of the torrential rains and landslides that destroyed over 250 houses in Carama in 2014, where JRMD built 786 houses some of them are still living in the remains and others being hosted by other families.

A home is one of the most important things which contribute to the good living of a human being. There is no safety, health and peace without a home. A home is the most intimate space we inhabit; it is the center of our daily existence, where our most significant relationships are built. To lose this place, it disturbs and affects physically and relationally. Each one of us can understand the effects of physical and relational victimization.

You can now imagine how much is painful for those who lost their homes due to a torrential rains and landslides that have left at list 100 people dead and over 1000 houses destroyed in the northern areas of Bujumbura, Capital City, including Carama location where JRMD helped 786 families to build 786 houses whom their homes were destroyed during the ethnic ware in 1993.

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, only $880 have been donated for this project. 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.

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