Busoro, overlooking Lake Kivu, is one of the newest schools we're working with.  Together with the Ministry For Education and the local community, TFS is improving the local primary school.

Perched on the top of a hill in the Rubavu District, and overlooking Lake Kivu, Busoro has more than 2100 students in P1-P6.   Students attend half-day classes and squeeze in 50-60 students per classroom. With only 15 classrooms the school is looking to build 3 more.   The Ministry of Education has agreed to fund 2 of the 3 and TFS will fund the 3rd.  As of January, 2018, TFS had build a new school class and students started using it right away. In 2018-2019, TFS extended our involvement with Busoro and built a further nursery classroom for 40 students.


What TFS HAS Done

  • the build of 1 new nursery classroom for 40 students (2018-2019)

  • the creation of 1 classroom to help ease congestion (2017-2018)

  • teacher training workshops

  • playground facilities to be assessed

  • sanitation and water supply services to be assessed
