Kavumba School

How we help > Kuvamba school
Kavumba Primary School in South Kivu was built in 2008 by the people of Muganzo using money raised by Congo Action and named Muganzo Primary School. In 2015 the villagers and parents' committee agreed to rename the school Kavumba Primary School. It is now flourishing and providing education to some 350 children.

The school has been officially registered by the government of Kinshasha, which means that the children can take exams and move onto official secondary schools. This is a great victory in ensuring that the school is up to standards and that teachers deliver good quality education.

Congo Action site visits are very encouraging as we are warmly welcomed by the parent’s committee, who take great pride in looking after both the school and the teachers. For example they bring eggs, flour and beans to the teachers to show their gratitude.

Villagers made a real fuss of our visitors when they arrived there, and the school is their pride and joy, so they have formed a committee to take good care of it.

The individual child sponsorship programmes came to an end in July 2014 after 12 years. After careful consideration it was decided that a fairer way of using sponsorship money was in supporting the school itself and buying extra teaching materials for all the children.
