Shalom School finds herself in a very critical situation today.The political and security situation in Burundi has indeed very much worsened in the last few weeks, and now the director of he school in on the current government's black-list, for her exceptional involvement in the defense of her Burundian peers, her "children" as she calls them.

She still has to live hidden, while continuing to follow the activities of Maison Shalom as well as the political events. The only people, today, who dare visit the sick, the prisoners, the wounded, the children, all victims of this tense situation and of the violence that prevails in the country, are the collaborators of Maison Shalom.


Their mission is to gather and redistribute goods of first necessity (mainly food) to families, but most importantly to give psychological support to parents whose children have been victims of this violence.

Friends of Humanity  Maison Shalom, but we are also in great need of your support and your solidarity, in order for her not to be left alone. The situation is most serious, for her as well as for her fellow Burundians.

The direcor called musonly a few days ago from her hiding place, ended the conversation by saying: "All is grace for he or she who believes. Myself, I pray for the grace to soon return to my country."

On the evening of 24 April 2016, at a imposing ceremony in the greater concert hall in Yerevan, the images move on the giant screen and tell the public her story, that of the woman rescued 10,000 children. She had several awards worldwide including the price of the rights of the French government.

 

It is in Rwanda that the president of Maison Shalom, threatened with death in Burundi, was exiled. For a year, the country is plunged into violence. Several hundred people died, about 300,000 have fled the country. Maguy, as his friends call him, continues to provide assistance to refugees and orphans.

Dear all,

Thank you for your generous support and contributions to the International School project in Ruyugi, Burundi. This project, launched in 2009 by Maison Shalom, aims to provide disadvantaged children the opportunity to attend school and receive a better education in the province of Ruyugi, where the educational system suffers due to a lack of facilities. 

Recently, the donations Friends of Humanity has received has faciliated the International School in the development and outfitting of 9 new classrooms, equipped with adquate learning tools such as bench desks, books and computers. These materials are essential to accomodate the new students the school has received in 2013 as enrollment has reached 241 from the 185 initial students! This is a major step towards its goal of educating 450 students by 2016. 

Your kind donations have also contributed to the construction of recreation facilities, including a playground, a basketball court and a voleyball court. With your support, the International School has been able to improve and expand its functions, while providing an affordable primary education that aims to lead the region to sustainable development.

Thank you again, and we look forward to your continued support!
