Last December, students from Otterbein University visited the Imbabazi. Before their arrival, they raised money to benefit Kanyundo Primary School (the primary school our children attend). The goal: to support our text book project.
This project benefits our children and the surrounding community. Kanyundo serves nearly 1,600 children. Having textbooks for the children greatly enhances their learning experience leading to better national exam scores.
Otterbein was able to raise enough money to purchase a dictionary for each classroom and 158 primary six text books. We were finally able to get the books from the publisher in Kigali to the school a week ago.
This is an ongoing project. In the future, we hope to purchase enough books for two children to share in addition to learning aids and maps for the school. Books cost $4-$7 each depending on the subject. A small donation can make a big difference in the lives of the children that attend Kanyundo Primary School.
