The Road Ahead for Kabirizi School

This is part 4 of a 4-part series on Kabirizi School. Click here to read the story in full.

Thanks in large part to generous donors in our School Partner program, Kabirizi has become a school community that has mobilized around the goal of meeting every child with an education that puts their learning needs first, involves them in lessons, and ensures they’re grasping concepts. And while our dedicated team of monthly School Partners has supported Kabirizi’s transformation, there is still more work to be done.

Like many other schools in Rwanda and around the world, Kabirizi has been experiencing a number of challenges due to the pandemic. Teacher Boniface told us, “During school reopening, we received many students but did not have enough classrooms to accommodate all of them. We had children who did not come back to school after a long time of school closure. Teachers were struggling with students who seemed to have forgotten everything or did not have any learning materials.” Head Teacher Justin shared about the challenge of parents’ mindsets—many are still resistant to send their children to school or provide learning materials. 

This July 2021, you can partner with Kabirizi school to walk alongside their transformation in the days, months, and years to come. When you sign up as a School Partner for as little as $15/month, you’re supporting the training of teachers, leaders, parents, and community leaders as they walk through our School Development Program. You are helping us provide in-school support, mentoring, and coaching to embed and reinforce Wellspring’s training into their classrooms and school culture. You are walking alongside the Kabirizi community, day after day, as they take steps towards sustainable change from the inside out.

Will you become a Monthly School Partner and be part of the further transformation at Kabribizi School?
