Our Plans

The school is growing and making a difference in this impoverished community. 

While the school started with less than ten children, it has 141 children. 

While PAAV has made tremendous strides in the education of the children 

the prevailing /overriding challenge remains: how to empower the parents

 so they may educate their children and provide for their families.  

PAAV is making efforts to reach/empower the parents 

hoping for transformed families in the community.

Be a part of the change.

Education is “the passport to human development.” Sponsor-A-Classroom gives quality education to children. 

Education is the most powerful, sustainable resource to help our children change their lives and their communities. 

Access to top school teachers, school supplies, and educational books are scarce and expensive.  


Children have access to education because of PAAV Gitombo


Teachers employed – supporting their families and livelihood while empowering our students.


Children currently in boarding school, advancing their education & career potential.

PAAV Gitombo Community School has been providing education to vulnerable children in Gitombo village since 2014. For parents who cannot afford an education, PAAV Gitombo supports their child’s education for free – but, nothing is free. PAAV Gitombo School funds the learning materials, meals and teacher salaries.

Education requires sustainable support.

Baraka means blessing.This house has indeed been a blessing to us especially during the rainy season. 

Barbara, a PAAV member in Ireland was used by God in making Baraka House a reality!

We now have a multi-purpose house that today functions as a dining room, community room, and Chapel.  

God bless Barbara and all of you who have contributed to make a lasting difference at Gitombo Coomunity Schoolthrough PAAV. The Kitchen is adjacent to Baraka House. Soon we will have  stoves installed!

Sponsorship: When a whole class is sponsored, it means an educated future with a sustainable community, potentially resourceful with teachers, doctors, nurses, plumber, electricians, pilots etc. The sky is the limit so I tell the little boys and girls.
