The key to Rwanda’s future success is the education of its children. Imbabazi has established a partnership with neighboring Kanyundo Primary School to help ensure all children in the area have access to quality educational materials. More than 1,500 children attend this school each day, and previously there was one textbook per class — for the teacher only! In addition, desks meant for 3 students were holding up to 6. Over the past five years, Imbabazi has purchased more than 600 text books and dictionaries, donated dozens of desks and bookshelves, and started a small English language library at Kanyundo. Our goal is to eventually provide textbooks for every child in addition to various learning aids such as microscopes, maps and school-wide murals depicting positive messages.
