Project Report | Oct 28, 2016
Look at the new classroom building!

By David Folds | Project Leader

We finished the new classroom building for the kids in Buhumba Village! Our crew, from Goma and from Idjwi, worked through the summer to complete the construction of the new building which houses six classrooms. The entire school community is thrilled and proud of the new building, which is constructed with a stone foundation, brick and mortar walls, a heavy timber supported metal roof, and concrete floors.

The new building is so popular that our enrollment has increased by approximately 150 children. We now have more than 500 children at the school. We are busy building new desks as fast as we can to provide additional work space for the new students.

Our work is not finished. While this new classroom building will provide a better learning environment for the kids, much more is needed to provide the kids with an opportunity to reach their full potential. We are continuing to work on public health, nutrition, sanitation and teacher training programs that will provide better conditions for the children to learn.  

We appreciate your support on this journey. There is more excitement to come.
