The families in Buhumba Village are preparing for a major event at l'Ecole Buhumba!
Early next month, the Education Minister from South Kivu and the King of Idjwi Sud Roger Ntambuka will be in Buhumba Village for a formal dedication of the new classroom building. They will be welcomed by the 500 primary school students, teachers, and community leaders. This important dedication will be followed by an education summit with directors of dozens of schools from across Idjwi Island.
A group of our leaders and representatives will attend this very important event. We will take this opportunity to meet with school and community leaders to review our current programs and additional construction that is underway (new latrines) and planned (completion of the administrative building).
We are thrilled that the children have a new classroom building that provides a better environment for learning and will make them proud - but we are not finished! We are continuing to work on facilities, programs, health care and nutrition at the school in order to provide the kids with real opportunity. We appreciate your interest and support.
