We are delighted to welcome the Rushubi Primary and Secondary schools as our Children in the Wilderness Rwanda partner for projects that will be supported by Wilderness Sabyinyo.
The school is situated close to Sabyinyo on the main road. Leontine Mukankuranga, the Headmistress, is so grateful and happy to be part of Children in the Wilderness. The school already has very active Environmental Clubs, and because of this, some of the students had been selected in previous years to participate in the Conservation Camps that CITW has organised in the area, together with other partners. This relationship will now be expanded, and we are excited to start working more closely with the school.
Already in March, a CITW-facilitated water filtration system was installed at the school with donations made possible by Sabyinyo guests. The filter system will ensure clean, safe, and hygienic drinking water for all 1,354 students at the school!
In the first weeks of April, the installation was completed, meaning that the students are enjoying fresh drinking water in this last term of the school year.
