CIMERWA’s passion for community transformation has gone beyond economic empowerment to include providing quality education for the young generation within the community.
“L’educateur” is a primary school in Bugarama built in 2006, the school started off relatively small with approximately 64 students enrolled. But a lot has changed since then, it went on to become a renowned establishment in the Rusizi region even being ranked second in the district for the past three years.
The school now has a total of 604 pupils enrolled and it has become a solution for parents who crave quality education for their children.
“L’educateur” boasts of an environment conducive to learning due to the facilities it provides, students are facilitated with breakfast and lunch on the premises and transport to and from the school.
Gakwavu Venuste, father of Muragwa Venuste who was the best student in the school, expressed his joy saying “we did all we could to support our son and this kind of commitment reflects the kind of impact l’educateur has had on the community in Rusizi”.
We can safely say this is a successful formula because in terms of performance the school has been consistent in its excellence with all students passing in grade 1 or grade 2.
The school is currently under expansion to accommodate an ordinary level of high school to facilitate the transition of its primary scholars.
