BACKGROUND

In Gitumba, Rwanda, 400 children were walking 2.5 hours to the next village each day for education. They hiked through a mountainous jungle where their safety was at risk, just to get to school. Then, they walked 2.5 hours to get back home again. That’s 5 hours a day that could have been better spent with family, doing homework, and just having fun!

A young student from Gitumba Primary School stands in front of the mountainous landscape that once served as the challenging pathway to their school.

OUTCOMES

There are 2 school buildings at Gitumba. Both buildings consist of 3 classrooms with new desks and chalkboards. All teachers at Gitumba Primary School are qualified public school teachers funded by the Rwandan government. These teachers will ensure that not only are the students of Gitumba in a safe learning environment but they are also receiving a quality education. 8 toilets and a water facility were built at Gitumba Primary School to improve sanitation standards and prevent hygiene-related illnesses.
