About the School
Many Twa are potters selling their wares with a subsistence income of $1/day while many others work as itinerant laborers when work is available. Kacyiru Primary School is located adjacent to the slum where the potters live in Kigali. It is a large school of 3000 students that is attended by very poor children in the area. Poverty prevents many of the children from attending school. With support from A Better World donors like you, these children are able to receive an education that will give them an opportunity to have a better life. Support pays for school fees, uniforms, shoes, socks, books, school supplies, and a daily nutritious meal.
Every year, project manager Debra Brosseuk travels to Kacyiru. She visits her students at the Primary School, interacts with the teachers and parents/caregivers, and visits the homes of the children. She ensures the children’s needs are addressed both at school and home, having taken many to medical facilities to receive care.
