Dear friends of the Village Imuhira,

We have great pleasure to inform you that the Belgian Ambassador to Burundi, His Excellency Jozef Smets, recently visited the site of the Village Imuhira. He was able to discover the full scope of the project and said how impressed he was with all that has been accomplished.

Annelyse Mary, who is employed by the Belgian mother organisation SEL Projets, has now returned to Burundi for a year and a half. She is helping the local partner with the financial management of the project.

Our next objective is the construction of a block of three new classrooms for the technical school. Building is due to start in December 2011.

As part of the bid to raise the 10,000 € required to finance this phase of the work, we are organising a Live for Africa concert on Sunday 18th December at 6 p.m. at the Centre Culturel of Auderghem, Brussels. The group SHINE A LIGHT, which first shone during our previous concerts, will once again be joining forces with the youth choir of UJEB-Bruxelles. If you’re able to attend, don’t miss this exciting new show! It promises to be not only fine entertainment, but also an excellent opportunity to make the project known.

If you want to book your seat : 0485 027 721

The Village Imuhira team.
