School Uniforms

September is the hardest month of the year for folks in Burundi, because it’s back to school time.  It is mandatory that if a child goes to public school he must wear a uniform. 

One of the Burundian moms said: “We can’t send our children back to school because we have no money to buy the uniform and school book and pencil. We go without food, sanitary towels, everything, but still can’t make it!

We were so blessed to help the 120 school age children in the village through our  “ADOPT A SCHOOL UNIFORM” ministry. We wanted all the kids to be able to go to school because education is key to escaping from poverty.
