The core aim of the project is to bring English primary education into the remote village of Rusaga in the district of Ryansoro, which is in the region of Gitega in Burundi. We aim to provide primary education in Rusaga where there is no provision at this time. In addition, over time we aim to improve the overall quality of other existing primary schools in the district, by upgrading school premises and improving educational facilities and materials.
A second aim of the project is to create a model for other schools. In particular this model will focus on:
- Successfully introducing technology into the curriculum
- Teaching English
- Educating the children and thus allowing them to pass on their knowledge to others
- Setting further examples for other villages in Burundi to follow and achieve successful education all around the district and country
