The Tanbur African Aid Society
Many individuals, teachers, and schools in the Edmonton area have contributed to the education of children at Burundi English School.
This long-term commitment (up to 13 years) provides the tuition fees for deserving children to attend BES.
What is a school without books? Fiction and non-fiction library books, teacher manuals and student texts - have all been donated, packaged and shipped to BES.
Friendship Force International created the first English Language Library in Burundi.
Schools have also contributed student and teacher desks, bookcases, chairs, and blackboards that would have otherwise ended up in landfills.
Fundraising has also provided money to purchase the latest in science instruments such as the telescope pictured here, microscopes, magnets, electrical parts, motors, rocks and minerals, beakers, pipettes, etc.
Computers, Smartboards, and laptops have found their way to Burundi in the shipping containers sent by TAAS.
TAAS is truly thankful for the fundraising efforts of schools to raise much needed funds for bursaries, supplies, and building Burundi English School.
