FACE OF WINTER NETHERLANDS DONTES 85 STUDENT CHAIRS
ECOLE FONDAMENTAL MURIRA -BURUNDI
Educationn, they say is the key to success; and this is what the team at Face of winter Netherlands who organised a charity event last April which was aimed at supporting the educational needs of ECOLE Murira-Burundi stands for. Ecole Fondamental Murra is one of the schools in the villages of the ”Batwa” pygmy group . The ”Batwa” is a pygmy group in Burundi who are striving to elevate their community from the grips of poverty.
Understanding that the only way to alleviate poverty is through education and the constant will to raise an educated community; The “Batwa” have managed to build schools that are self taught by some of it members who were opportune to go to the big cities to study. The schools built in the community lacks the necessary materials that is needed to make learning for it student enjoyable; students sits on the classroom floors to study and teachers lacks the materials needed to make teaching easier. Believing that one of the ways to create a self sustaining community is through education, The Face of Winter Netherlands donated the proceeds of their ”Touching Lives” event to fixing 85 chairs for the students of Ecole Fundamental Murira who sits on the classroom floors to study. In total there are more that 200 students who sits on the classroom floors to be educated. Through out the year the ”Face of Winter” team will be donating to support the educational needs of Ecole fondamental Murira. We hope to reach out to this community in any little way that we can.
