EDUCATION IS THE KEY FOR A PROMISING AND STABLE LIFE

If you want to lead a promising life and experience the good things that the World has to offer, you certainly need to get educated. To get a great job, a good social reputation, benefit your community and nation are few of the many benefits of being an educated person in the today’s World.

In Burundi, especially in Cibitoke, where Iwacu Kazoza School is providing education to the underprivileged and orphaned children, the following reasons make many children not to go at school or abandon the school:

  • Inability of parents to pay school fees for their children
  • Inability of parents to provide school materials and uniform
  • Inability of parents to provide food to their children before and when they come back home from school, even spend a night without eating

In one word, poverty is the cause of many children not to have access to education in Burundi, Africa. That’s why Iwacu Kazoza School is providing education to the underprivileged and orphaned children so that they can also have a chance in the future to lead a promising life and experience the good things that the World has to offer. This work of providing education to the underprivileged and orphaned children continues because of you and friends, and friends of friends.

A donation of $125 will provide education to one underprivileged or orphaned child schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School, including his/her school materials and uniform. You can help one or more of the above mentioned children who can not have access to their education due to the poverty of their parents or because they are orphans. This can be done by joining hands together with the community within and the community beyond.

Because of you, we're proud to be featured in @GlobalGiving's 2017 Year In Review: https://www.facebook.com/238561311217/photos/a.10154295685856218.1073741825.238561311217/10155066710126218/?type=1&theater

It was a great Joy and laughter for each one of us to celebrate the graduation of twelve (12) Students of Iwacu Kazoza School graduated after 4 years studying Computer Management ( Informatique de Gestion). Twelve students made by 8 girls and 4 boys, as you can see from the attached picture. The 8 girls are in national cloth and the 4 boys in blue suit.

I am very grateful and appreciative to our donors, friends and friends of friends for helping us make possible this work to continue to provide education to the 500 underprivileged and orphaned children, schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School.

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.
