Twelve years ago, the CIMERWA School “Educateur Nursery/Primary School” had 64 students. Today in 2018, there are over 453 students, across three classes, with fourteen teachers, one headmaster, and over the last three years the school has been ranked second in performance in the Rusizi district for the national exam. In 2008, CIMERWA developed the school even more by investing RWF 123.8 million. Now, in response to a growing demand, the school is being expanded to include three years of high school so that scholars qualify for colleges and universities. Parents are part of the success as well, being largely involved in management and in a local committee that oversees the mission and vision of the school.
