FOURTH GRADUATION OF THE STUDENTS OF IWACU KAZOZA SCHOOL

46 students, girls and boys graduated today, on  April 8, 2021. This is the results of what our donors, friends and friends of friends have done through their financial support and prayers.

We are  very grateful to each one of you all who continue to support financially  Iwacu Kazoza School.  Iwacu Kazoza School is very grateful to each one of you   for your  donations  which continues to enable JRMD continue to provide education to the underprivileged children.

Education is the key for a promising and a future stable life. If you want to lead a promising life and experience the good things that the World has to offer, you certainly need to get educated. To get a great job, a good social reputation, benefit your community and nation are few of the many benefits of being an educated person in the today’s World.

In Burundi, especially in Cibitoke, where Iwacu Kazoza School is providing education to the underprivileged and orphaned children, the following reasons  continue to make many children not to go at school or abandon the school:

  • Inability of parents to pay school fees for their children
  • Inability of parents to provide school materials and uniform
  • Inability of parents to provide food to their children before and when they come back home from school, even spend a night without eating

In one word, poverty is the cause of many children not to have access to education in Burundi, Africa. That’s why Iwacu Kazoza School is providing education to the underprivileged and orphaned children so that they can also have a chance in the future to lead a promising life and experience the good things that the World has to offer. This work of providing education to the underprivileged and orphaned children continues because of you and friends, and friends of friends.

A donation of $125 will provide education to one underprivileged or orphaned child schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School, including his/her school materials and uniform. You can help one or more of the above mentioned children who can not have access to their education due to the poverty of their parents or because they are orphans. This can be done by joining hands together with the community within and the community beyond.

It was a great Joy and laughter for each one of us to celebrate the graduation of 46  Students boys and girls  of Iwacu Kazoza School graduated after 3  years studying Computer Management ( Informatique de Gestion). I am very grateful and appreciative to our donors, friends and friends of friends for continuing to helping us make possible this work to continue to provide education to  over 500 underprivileged and orphaned children, schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School.

                     JOIN US IN CELEBRATING 27 YEARS OF SHARING

                                LOVE AND COMPASSION IN ACTION

For my last 27  years with JRMD in serving others, I learnt three important things: (1) Compassion is not about words, Compassion is action; it is about caring for those in need and suffering; (2) There is Joy and Blessings in serving others and helping them find a solution of what they call “Problem”; (3) God is able to make Great Things to happen, through whoever is available to serve Him in obedience.

Compassion is about identifying yourself with those in need and suffering; it is about solidarity;  it is about helping  find the solutions for those who are waiting for a help  and assistance, as you would have tried for your own self.

We started this journey of sharing  Love and Compassion in Action in January 1994,  when Hutu and Tutsi were killing each other and could not live together as they used to be before the war escalated in October in 1993, with the objective to promote peace and reconciliation in a divided nation,  through sharing Love and Compassion in Action.

Through our Journey, we showed the nation of Burundi that it is still possible for Hutu, Tutsi and Twa to live together as they used to live for hundreds years, just as witnessed by our team.

In January 1994, the first 150 homes were built in the location of Kwisumo-Munyinya, in Ruyigi Province, Eastern of Burundi. In the same year, we organized a peace building and reconciliation campaign in all over the country of Burundi during a period of three months. The following year, we organized  a historical Youth Congress which gathered over 1,000 delegates from different countries of Africa.

In the summer of 1999, we built 150 houses in 15 days and  in 2003 we  organized three days youth activities in which over 5,000  young people participated actively to clean the City of Bujumbura. From 1994-2020, we built 3,269 houses for 3,269 families, living in different locations and provinces of Burundi. We sponsored thousands of children with school materials who could not go to school without a such help. Conferences and workshops  related to peace-building and reconciliation were organized for church leaders and lay people. In 2008, we built 40 houses for 40 families  in 40 days with funds raised in 40 days. Between 2008 and 2009 we distributed 122 mattresses to the very needy  families in Carama, a location, where we built over 700 homes. In 2003 We published a peace-building and reconciliation booklet in Kirundi and French, called: “Is It Possible to Live Together Once Again” and 2004, we published another booklet entitled “Risking Our Lives in Order to Save the Lives of Others”. 2004 I had the privilege to meet with a Commission of the Parliament of Netherlands.  In 2006 and 2007 I was nominated Giraffe hero and Ambassador for peace. In 2007 and 2009, I had the privilege to meet the President of Burundi, Pierre Nkurunziza and the Governor of Washington State,  Christine Gregoire.

On September 17, 2012 we opened a school “Iwacu Kazoza School”  with 252 students. Decision to open in 2012 was difficult:

-        Toilets were not completed

-        Full funding was not secured

-        Permanent water system was not ready

-        Did not have school materials

-        Parents begged for the school  to open  -  if the school did not happen their children could not have had access to education

Today, Iwacu Kazoza School is providing education to over 500 underprivileged and orphaned children, who could not have access to education without a help from people like you.

From 1994-2020, many other different projects  were undertaken, such as Goat Project, Women Farming Project, Micro-lending Project, AfricaAmericaExchange Project, etc …

During our Journey of 27 years, thousands of people realized and believed that Jesus-Christ is the foundation of peace and reconciliation.

The work of bringing healing and hope  to a wounded community, through sharing  Love and Compassion continues. This is being done in joining hands together with our partners and friends. Today, we  have two projects that we are undertaking:

  1. The construction of Imuhira Iwacu Village  continues. Two blocks made by 6 classrooms each, the dormitory for boys and two rooms for mother caretakers have been completed and all the facilities are serving as classrooms  and offices. The dormitory for girls, dining hall and rooms for mother caretakers are at the level of foundation. To complete the construction of the two blocks remaining, we still need: $113,547
  1. To supply clean water at Iwacu Kazoza and the surrounding community from the drilled Well, we still need $57,967. A well has been drilled and water has been found and the  remaining work to be done is to install a water solar pump, pipes and build water tanks to hold the water.

Our Future Project is to buildIwacu Ruhagarika Hill University. It will be part of Imuhira Iwacu Village. Imuhira Iwacu Village will bring NEW HOPE FOR TODAY'S and TOMORROW’S GENERATIONS in Africa. The village will be comprised  of: Iwacu Kazoza Primary and Secondary School,  Orphanage, Community Center,  Health Center, Iwacu Ruhagarika Hill University. It will be a true Village for hope and positive change for AFRICA. At the completion of Imuhira Iwacu Village, it will look as follows:

Education will enable underprivileged and orphaned children to experience bright future and test the good things that the World has to offer

“The school year 2019-2020 Report”

The terrifying times in which we live today, times that the entire humanity is suffering

due to COVID-19 requires new solutions: new ways of living; new ways of working and handling things; new ways of behaving; new ways of dealing with whatever situation that may be resulted by COVID-19. Remember, we only need courage and patience when things do not go well; when we face life challenges. Because of HOPE in us to overcome them we remain courageous and Patient!!NEW WAYS and NEW WAYS AGAIN and AGAIN, because in whatever situation that we may be, LIFE continues.

“Be the kind of person who dares to face life’s challenges and overcome them rather than dodging them”. - Roy T. Bennett-

Providing education and life skills will save the lives of thousands of orphans, street children and children from needy families in Cibitoke, who could not have access to education without donations from friends and friends of friends. This is about to help the above mentioned children to prepare and experience a NEW LIFE, NEW FAMILY, NEW SOCIETY by giving them an opportunity to have right to education. Iwacu Kazoza School is a NEW HOPE FOR TODAY and TOMORROW’S GENERATION for the children of Ruhagarika village, surrounding areas and beyond.

During the school year 2019-2020, with the help of JRMD and Iwacu Kazoza School donors, Iwacu Kazoza School provided education to510unprivileged and orphaned children from Ruhagarika village, surrounding areas and beyond. The school provided jobs to 32 teachers and school administration staff. If one person was to try do this work alone, it would have been impossible. I am very thankful to our donors and friends, and friends of friends who are making their donations to help JRMD continue to provide education to the unprivileged kids, schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School.

Our success during the school year 2019-2020:

  • There was no any strike of teachers during the school year 2019-2020
  • There was no any case of COVID-19 among the students and teachers
  • Students enjoyed much the results of exams and school year 2019-2020
  • Students were very attentive and committed to the lessons in classrooms
  • Education was provided as planned from the school year 2019-2020
  • 46 students girls and boys will graduate in October 2020

If one person was to try do this work alone, it would have been impossible. I am very thankful to our donors and friends, and friends of friends who are making their donations to help JRMD continue to provide education to the unprivileged kids, schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School. This was only possible by joining hands together to build the society and the world we want, that each one of us is longing to belong to and live in. Today, Iwacu Kazoza School is counted as one of the best schools in Cibitoke province even in the country of Burundi, of the schools providing qualitative education. Students, parents and people like Iwacu Kazoza School. This is a good result of your work and our work together. Let us together give thanks, glory and honor to God, the Creator. We give thanks to our donors and GlobalGiving for making possible the education of these children, who could not have access to education without your financial help and prayers

Providing education to the underprivileged and orphaned children will help them test to the good things that the World has to offer.

Ou failure during the school year 2019-2020:

  • Due to the lack of funds, teachers’ salaries were not paid in total during the school year 2019-2020. We still owe them $2,845.
  • Lack of student’s books and materials
  • Lack of student’s desks and computers

During the school year 2019-2020, teachers were made by men and women, well educated, available, committed to teach and serve. The students were engaged and eager learners.

I am very grateful and appreciative to each one of our donors, friends and friends of friends who made possible the 510unprivileged children to have access to education during the school year 2012-2013. May God continue to bless each one of you in a very special way.
