MERCI FEELS LIKE A NEW PERSON AFTER HIS SURGERY IN INDIA

I. IWACU KAZOZA SCHOOL:

Iwacu Kazoza School is changing lives of underprivileged children in Burundi. The school year 2019-2020 will start on Monday, September 5, 2019. For this school year 2019-2020 we will be expecting to receive over 500 underprivileged children to be enrolled in IWACU KAZOZA SCHOOL. Remember most of them are orphaned children and from very poor families. Because of your continuing donations and your personal commitments, The school year 2018-2019, we have reached our goals. This not only means so much to me, but it especially means so much to the underprivileged children schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School, their parents and their teachers. Because of your donations, during the school years  2018-2019, IwacuKazoza School has been ranked among the best schools of Cibitoke Province, providing  quality education in Burundi.  This is witnessed and confirmed by the results of national exams that our students have been participating in.

As we were not able to raise enough funds to pay teachers and purchase all the school materials that the school was in need, during the school year 2018-2019 we experienced challenges. But with the financial help of our donors, the school year ended well. As result of that, we finished the school year with 487 students and 64 students of the 487 students, their graduating ceremonies are scheduled on October 1, 2019.

Just to let you know that we have a very urgent need to purchase 88 student’s desks and repair 68 that are not in good condition: - Purchase 88 student’s desks: $35X88=$3,080 - Repair 65 student’s desks: $14X65=$910

- Purchase student’s and teacher’s books including other different school materials: $2,147 Total Cost: $6,137.

In addition of that, we need your monthly donation to help and enable us to pay teachers and administration staff salaries.

With the help of our donors, in 2019 we were able to send an orphaned boy, Merci Irakoze to Chennai Hospitals in India for his surgery.

When Merci Irakoze left Bujumbura for Chennai Hospitals in India, he   could not stand up or sit on a chair, but today he can stand up without the help of crutches and sit down for hours. He can walk with the help of crutches for more than a mile. “This is amazing, this is a miracle” joyfully said her grandmother when she met Merci at Bujumbura International Airport when he came back from India. Merci is very happy to be back home and join his grandmother.

II. MERCI FEELS LIKE A NEW PERSON AFTER HIS SURGERY IN INDIA:

Merci is very happy and feels like a new person as you can see from the photographs. His improvement is amazing! He is very thankful to each one OF those who helped financially so that he can travel to India for his surgery, a surgery that was not possible to be done in Burundi.

He was admitted in Chennai Hospitals on June 6 with deformity of right hip and knee with inability to walk on his own. Upon initial evaluation of Merci at the Chennai Hospitals, they have seen infection in the hip region and Merci was treated for that. Along with the unexpected infection, the right hip had fused in full external rotation with left knee "flexion contracture of 90 degrees", meaning that the muscle and joint were shortened and his right ankle is in "Equinus" which makes it difficult to flex. This led to a more complicated surgery. Remember Merci had two surgeries within 30 days where he was admitted in Chennai Hospitals.

Because of your generous donation Merci’s Hospital Bills for his two surgeries and hospitalization have been paid. He is now back to Burundi. May God bless each one of those who donated to help Merci travel to India for his surgery in Chennai Hospitals and travel back to Burundi.

Thanks to each and every one of you who did their part to help Merci travel to India for his surgery and bring him back home, including those we do not know. We appreciate all of you!”

Until this time, we still need to purchase school supplies, buy additional student’s desks and repair the desks that are not in good condition. To meet this urgent need, we need friends and friends of friends to continue to help and enable Iwacu Kazoza School to continue provide education to the underprivileged children, help them prepare their future so that one day they will be able to help themselves and give back to their community and nation.

Every donation helps ensure that we can continue helping underprivileged children to have access to education. Let us together continue to be a new hope for the underprivilege and orphaned children. Yes, WE CAN.

For JRMD and Iwacu Kazoza School,

Prosper Ndabishuriye General Coordinator and Founder

           SPECIAL MESSAGE TO OUR SPECIAL DONORS AND FRIENDS

It is with great pride that we announce that we have at least 20 students sitting for the 9th grade National Exam in June 2019 and 46 students sitting for the "Terminal", the National Exam in July 2019 that enables students to exit from high school and move out into the world of college and/or work.

In October 2017 twelve students (boys and girls) and in September 2018 twenty four students (boys and girls) graduated from Iwacu Kazoza School. This was possible because of your donation. The school administration, students and parents are very grateful to each one of our donors and friends.

Wherever and whoever you are you can help us make this to happen to help provide education to the underprivileged children to enable them to become self-sufficient in the future, help their community and country and become more effective in this way to themselves, their community and country as well.

Please consider donating to JRMD and help us in this important work.  We will need at least $9,150 to feed our 66 students for a period of two months, prepare them for the national tests and pay our hard-working teachers.  Please donate by clicking on the following link: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/providing-education-to-450-youths-in-ruhagarika/

Due to our school’s emergency financial situation I am making a plea to all of you to make a special donation so that we will be able to pay our teachers and finish well the school year 2018-2019.

Thank you so much for helping us make this to happen in the lives of 66 students and teachers.

                                                    A YEAR IS LIKE A HUGE FOREST!!

The year 2018 will be over soon, and start the New Year 2019. I wish you Peace and Blessings over the year 2019 and success in your work and business.

Please know that a year is like a huge forest and when you enter in a forest you do not know how you will get out of it and what you are going to meet over there. In whatever situation you may have gone through, during the year 2018, thus 365 days, Do not be discouraged if things did not go as you had planed, because what is not possible today, will be possible tomorrow. But remember, Big Vision requires Big Dream, Big Dream requires Big Actions and Big Actions require Big Commitment; knowing that there is wonderful joy ahead. Commitment requires courage and patience; Patience and courage never fail and are determined by the End".

While you celebrate Christmas and New Year seasons, think about underprivileged children; your Christmas gift will show these children that there are people who care for them and make them SMILE again. Your donation will help them feel that they are not completely forgotten. It will enable Iwacu Kazoza School to continue to provide education to 510 underprivileged children, purchase teacher and student’s books, and desks and pay teacher’s salaries. Your donation will make a huge difference in the lives of hundreds underprivileged children.

Because of your donation, Iwacu Kazazo School continues to provide education to over 500 underprivileged children, schooling in our school.

The year 2018 was very hard for our school as we did not raise enough funds to provide school materials to our students, pay teacher’s salaries, purchase teacher and student’s books and desks. The project to bring water to Iwacu Kazoza School and the Orphanage was not completed due to the lack of funds. We continue to share this need with our partners and friends, and friends of friends: https://web.facebook.com/238561311217/photos/a.10150191650251218/10155251382051218/?type=3&theater

As you can also see from the attached pictures, the school does not have enough laptops, that’s why you see five students sharing one computer. This need has to be met to allow Iwacu Kazoza School continue to provide good education to the underprivileged children.

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.

                                 FIVE YEARS OF OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH GLOBALGIVING

                                                                July 2013-July 2018

Our partnership with GlobalGiving started in July 2013, just one year after we opened Iwacu Kazoza School. In brief, GlobalGiving helped us motivate our donors by providing matching funds opportunities and making donations online through GlobalGiving.

During the 5 Years of our partnership with GlobalGiving, we raised $137,402, donated by 341 donors, from which total amount $97,972 was raised by JRMD and $39,429 driven by GlobalGiving.

I am very thankful to GlobalGiving and our donors and friends, and friends of friends who are making their donations to help JRMD continue provide education to  the underprivileged 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.

Because of you, today, Iwacu Kazoza School  is providing education to 500 underprivileged children and counted as one of the best schools in Cibitoke province even in the country of Burundi of the schools providing  qualitative education. This is a good result of your work and our work together.

TESTIMONIES:

Mr. Nicizanye has three children schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School, he said: “If this school could not have been here, my three children could not have a chance to go to school.  Now I can hope to see them complete  their education and have a good job that will enable them to help themselves and care for our poor family in the future”.

Mr. Leonard Nijimbere is a leader of Ruhagarika (chief) village, he said: “ What privilege to have this school near by and within our community, in which our children can have access to education without traveling far away, as it used to be before”!

Currently we need to purchase and repair student’s desks and buy school materials. we have been very fortunate to have received $2000 of the $3972 needed to purchase and repair student’s desks for the upcoming school year which begins 6 coming days, thus Monday, September 3. We are very much in need of $1,972 to help complete the purchase of 85 student’s desks and repair 68 that are not in good condition.

In addition, 182 orphans and underprivileged children are in urgent need of school supplies, totaling $15X182= $2,730. In total, we urgently need $1,972+2,730=$4,702.

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.

                                            LEADING A PROMISING LIFE IS POSSIBLE IN AFRICA!!

In one word, poverty is the cause of many children not to have access to education. With the help of donors, friends and friends of friends 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.

The following reasons 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 they go and when they come back home from school, even spend a night without eating

- Many girls in secondary schools are impregnated to get what they may need due to the poverty of their parents

The above mentioned reasons are some of the major obstacles to a promising life in many different parts of African continent. It is then important to invest more in education that will enable children from poor communities to have also access to education.

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 for a school year. $125 will help reduce the above mentioned obstacles to a promising life and experiencing the good things that World has to offer.

I am very grateful to each one of those who are contributing financially to help underprivileged and orphaned children so that they can also have access to education.

You can now be one of those who today are caring and providing to the underprivileged and orphaned children in Burundi, Africa.
