Big Day, Big Season

The Idjwi Island Education Fund is finalizing plans and the schedule for the construction of the entire school this summer.  We have the drawings, our contractor (who has delivered on time and on budget with prior work), and the support of the school community.  With some hard work, we can have the new school ready for the students for the fall term in September.  The 350 kids at the Buhumba Primary School will be thrilled.

We can take a major step in that direction during today's Global Giving Bonus Day.  There are $75,000 in matching funds available, and all donations made today through Global Giving will receive a match.  

Through the generosity of our supporters like you, we are very close to our funding requirement to build the classroom building.  If you can provide additional support today, the Bonus Day match will help us to get even closer to finishing the entire construction effort.
