8th Back to School
The love of Canadians is shining brightly for 100 youngsters going back to school in Burundi!
On Saturday, Sept. 14th, 2019, we successfully held our 8th annual Back to School event. Our founder Aline Gahiza from Canada was among those on hand to deliver the school supplies. With your financial donations, we were able to supply notebooks, uniforms, shoes, backpacks and writing supplies to 50 children from the community of Kivumu and 50 from Buterere.
Some of these children have never worn shoes or owned a backpack until now. We firmly believe that education and sponsorship are important tools in breaking the cycle of poverty within Burundi.
