Education First Campaign for Burundi, East Africa

While most people you know are checking out of school for the summertime, The scholars in Burundi are more motivated now than ever to study, study, study. Kids are grasping the value of education BECAUSE the Education First campaign has begun!

Tabitha Community in Action, also known as TCA, aims to continue addressing these issues through its “EDUCATION FIRST ” campaign, focusing on providing school materials, healthcare, and nutritional support to 100 orphans and vulnerable children to ensure their continued education. The volunteers and children have been selected. The budget has been made. The challenges, methods, and outcomes have been made clear.

In education, TCA will distribute school materials such as uniforms, books, pencils, and papers to 100 orphans and vulnerable children. For nutritional support, TCA will continue daily feeding 100 malnourished children and enforce periodical check-ups with local health centers and clinical nutritionists. For healthcare, TCA has set aside an emergency budget to cover medical expenses in case of emergencies or sudden illnesses for the 100 children. For mental health, TCA plans to conduct bi-weekly counseling sessions for 100 children with trained professional counselors and has already been training their volunteers to provide ongoing emotional support. For Social Development, TCA will be offering an English course to 100 children at the TCA center, starting in the summer of 2024. TCA has also been organizing “summer peace games” and educational activities for 100 children.

TCA has been very diligent in training its volunteers. The volunteers will be mentoring, advocating, and looking out for the 100 children, who range from age 7 to age 16. To ensure sustainability, TCA will continue to engage in communities and raise awareness. They will build partnerships with local and international organizations. They will seek ongoing funding and support from donors and stakeholders BECAUSE education cannot wait.
