A Little Goes A Long Way
*In 2015, the government imposed severe restrictions on NGOs! The Burundi Education Fund now directs its focus on Burundi refugee students in Rwanda and Uganda.
We support Burundi refugee students in Rwanda & Uganda in 3 ways:
- Education assistance/tuition to attend school
- Supplemental food support to families so students can focus on school without being hungry
- Micro-loans and seed-capital so parents can create ways to provide for their family’s needs
Tuition costs vary depending on the level of schooling and the school location. The following is an average cost breakdown of levels of support:
- $110/year ~ tuition for an elementary school student
- $450/year ~ tuition & fees for secondary student (in a boarding school)
- $30/month – provides supplementary food support for a family of 6
- $1,500 micro-loan/seed-capital to start & grow a family business
Additionally, students also need school supplies, uniforms, personal hygiene incidentals, etc. For a total of $150, or less than 50 cents per day, YOU can be the difference between poverty and a child’s elementary school education for an entire school year.
