Place: Joy Christian School
Divine Ikirezi Nkurikiyinka has been waiting 500 days for a sponsor.
Divine has four siblings, Olivier, Oliver, Yvette and Denise. Her father, Steven and mother, Charlotte are farmers in the Muturirwas Village. Divine is very well behaved in class and does everything that is asked of her. She can read simple stories and express herself in simple English. She is creative using blocks to make houses and cars. During playtime she enjoys playing catch with tennis balls and skipping rope. She one day hopes to become a police officer.
Joy Christian School gives families the opportunity for their children to receive a solid Christian start to their education.
Each child will need a sponsor to help pay for their education. A donation of $40/month partial sponsorship or $80/month full sponsorship will pay for will pay for school supplies, uniforms, teachers salary, and help with additional costs. Some students are sponsored with one share and just need an additional sponsor to join at $40/month. You can pay for one month at a time or pay for the entire year all at once. As a sponsor you will have the unique privilege to follow the growth of your student and pray for them.
One day Joy Christian School will have a boarding school that will have both poor and rich learning side by side. Joy Christian School hopes to be a training ground and model for many schools in East Africa. It will be a reproducible model easily duplicated in other communities.
