Burundi is currently embroiled in conflict but the north, where Ngozi University is located, has remained a stable outpost for the country. Maintaining services and a consistent way of life is crucial for keeping peace. Ngozi University's Peace Studies Program currently needs a generator to keep classes running. Currently, we just need $7500 more to acquire a new one.
Frequent power outages mean the teaching and education at Ngozi University is frequently disrupted. The existing generator doesn't have sufficient capacity and needs to be upgraded. Ngozi currently provides advanced education to over 1700 students.
This project will help the school upgrade their generator to provide enough energy for the school to ensure that classes and instruction is no longer interrupted.
The need for a generator is clear; everything stops without it. With a reliable source of electricity, Burundians can forge a RECOVERY and REBIRTH of spirit, RECONCILIATION of wounds, differences, rivalries, prejudices, and hatreds, RESOLVE to understand the truth of the past, fix the present, and prepare for a better future; and a RESILIENCE to rebuild an impoverished, post-colonial nation.
