Promoters of Hamurwa Needy Children ICT centre and project are people with high caliber and developed minds. The idea of establishing the ICT Centre was to support the needy children and orphans so that they could grow scientifically oriented.

The project has an executive board comprised of 5 members chaired by Mr. Christopher Buhazi.
Board members and promoters have well tested skills in the field of child care, education and social administration.
The promoters of the school, who are the founders, came up with a common idea, to identify communities in their respective areas and examine their needs and problems related to educational improvement caused by lack of schools and a lack of income generating activities, which will in turn be a source of school fees. This is because many children fail to go to primary and secondary or institutional schools.
ICT Centre and the primary school in the project is designed for these cases.
The board focuses on needy children and orphans to ensure they are raised in a scientific-oriented and technologically upright environment.

The project mostly serves pupils from the Hamurwa Community and other neighboring areas, with particular focus on orphans and other needy children, including those from neighboring districts, such as Kisoro District, kanungu District, Rukungiri District…

 How you can help

Why Support the Needy Children and orphans?
The children of Hamurwa need your support because there is:

·      a growing number of orphans, largely caused by AIDS

·      a growing number of street children, largely caused by poverty

·      increased levels of immoral and disorderly behavior, largely caused by a lack of moral guidance during childhood

·      an associated high mortality rate and a high incidence of HIV / AIDS

·      a reduced attendance in school, largely caused by poverty

Send Personal Hygiene and Health Supplies
A key HNCP strategy is to provide personal hygiene education and supplies so that pupils can maintain their well-being, are comfortable, have settled morale and in turn are better able to concentrate on their studies.

You can help the children by sending personal health and hygiene supplies. Any personal health and hygiene supplies that you would typically expect to use in your country is of great value to the needy children of Hamurwa.

The table below shows the main personal health and hygiene supplies that the children of Hamurwa need in order to study effectively.

Send Mattresses, Beds, Mosquito Nets and Bedding
The orphans and needy children of Hamurwa live in very poor conditions. Most children do not sleep in a bed at night. Some children sleep on a mat on the floor and some children sleep directly on the floor.

The provision of mattresses, beds, and bedding will significantly improve the living conditions and ability to realize the benefits of attending school. The provision of mosquito nets will preserve life by assisting in the prevention of vector-borne diseases.

Typically, the cost of shipping will be prohibitive when sending large items, but bedding, pillow,  and mattresses in general, and second-hand items in good condition, may be sent at a reasonable cost.
