Helping Children on Idjwi Island

By David Folds | Project Leader

Greetings from Idjwi Island in the Democratic Republic of Congo!  We appreciate the generosity of the many supporters for our micro project to purchase new desks for students at l'ecole primaire Buhumba on Idjwi Island.  As this micro project was not fully funded, the funds that we received were applied to the main project for the Buhumba School.  The funds are being used to support the children at the school.  In late 2012, we provided new chalkboards and school supplies for the older students at the school.  We will continue to support the school and the children in Buhumba Village while we raise funds and complete the project planning for the new school.

Thanks again for your support for these deserving kids on Idjwi Island.
