Project Description: 

HOPE'87-Burundi, with financial support from YOU Foundation - Education for Children in Need, RTL Foundation and Foundation "Vision for Children", is currently implementing this project in Kivoga village. At this stage activities focus on raising awareness in the community about the project and its components. The intervention concentrates on children between 0 and 5 years of age and will complement the achievements of the Gitaramuka school project to create opportunities for the children in terms of education and early childhood development.

The interest raised in this programme among local stakeholders in the field of education has made HOPE'87-Burundi a participant in the national policy-making process in education. The Ministry of Education organized an international conference for pre-school education and integrated early childhood development where HOPE'87-Burundi was invited to take part and to share its experience.
