This project is based in the Muyinga Province which is located in the North East of the country.
To develop the Stand Up and Build Technical School with the community of Muyinga to further the education of much needed construction skills and hence assist in development of essential buildings and infrastructure in Burundi.
Our agreed vision with the team in Muyinga:
To use the 'Stand Up and Build' project as a tool of reconciliation for working together, learning together, working without discrimination.
Through education we will provide people with OPTIONS, OPPORTUNITY, CHOICE and the ability to obtain work and generate an income for their family. A sense of PRIDE.
To build friendship, peace, RECONCILIATION, partnership, relationships, & CONNECTIONS through a humanity between students and people involved in the project, regardless of faith, tribe, gender, wealth or ability.
Students will be encouraged to understand their DUTIES, RIGHTS and RESPONSIBILITIES to society and work SAFELY, SUSTAINABLY, efficiently and effectively.
