Bujumbura, Burundi.

Orphaned by the ethnic-based civil war that prevented him from attending school for several years, Jean-Claude never gave up on his dream of getting an education.

He is now studying at the University of Lake Tanganyika in Bujumbura, Burundi, where he is actively involved in ICT policy, e-Learning programs for rural communities, theater, film, radio, TV, and journalism. He expects to graduate in 2014 with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies.

To help pay for his education, he teaches at Jeancka School in the Commune of Kamenge in Bujumbura.

We wish you all the best!
