Book Sale Success

DSC_0042This spring, The Mwebaza Foundation’s 6th Annual Book Sale Fundraiser was a huge success! This year, Niwot Elementary and Eagle Crest Elementary held separate book sales. This allowed each school to send all funds it raised directly to its own individual partner school.
The funds raised at Niwot Elementary are allocated for the construction of a new secondary/middle school in the nearby town of Nkungulutale. This new school will accommodate students who graduate from Mwebaza Primary School and middle school students from the village of Nkungulutale.
The funds raised at Eagle Crest Elementary will assist in the development of a sustainable lunch program at their partner school, Empakasi Primary School in Kenya.
Altogether, the funds raised from the sale of second-hand books, framed batiks, and beautiful African beaded jewelry amounted to an astounding $4,900. The Mwebaza Foundation sincerely thanks all the volunteers and participants of this year’s book sales.
