In her speech, Minister Sabushimike appreciated the donation of school materials distributed by the two associations. She indicated that the latter have already understood the program of the responsible and hardworking government saying that no one stays behind so that Burundi is an emerging country in 2040 and developed in 2060.

To achieve that objective, she stressed, the national education sector comes in first position. She took that opportunity to encourage students in general and in particular the beneficiaries of school materials, to make efforts in order to progress in development.

To parents, Ms. Sabushimike asked them to closely follow their children to school to realize that they arrive at school on time and that they understand the lessons learned in class to be sure that their children are well supervised or they need additional supervision, she insisted.

As for the students receiving the aid, she recommended that they make good use of it and banish their habit of selling the donation granted.

Note that the governor of Muramvya province, Diomède Nzambimana, who welcomed Minister Imelde Sabushimike, also congratulated the two associations which thought of vulnerable pupils before the start of the school year, while calling on others with a charitable soul to follow suit to support education for all.
