    The Story
    Uh oh, another charity for education in Africa, right? Think again! And listen to how our story is different. The Koumra School was founded by Beyamra Ounoumdon, a private citizen, who uses the little money he can spare from his monthly salary, and who donates the little time he can spare from his busy work week.

    Who Is Behind this Website?

    We are a group of seven colleagues and friends of Beyamra Ounoumdon who are determined to raise funds for the Koumra School. It’s difficult to imagine how much the students are counting on us. Their school is truly their only hope for a brighter future.

    How We Use the Funds?

    Advance is the NGO we founded to raise funds for the Koumra School. It has no full-time employees. It is run entirely by volunteers, including those who designed and developed our website. None of the funds raised are used for travel expenses to Chad.

    Paypal takes a 5% cut of each financial transaction, and the Koumra School web site’s hosting costs $200 a year. All other funds raised go directly to our projects on the ground in Koumra. We pay suppliers directly.

    The School

    Located in the city of Koumra, in southern Chad, the school was built for children who can’t afford the area’s schools.

    Today, 10 years later, the Koumra School’s academic results are amongst the best in the country. Nonetheless, the school struggles to survive.

    Facts: 1,325 Students aged 6 to 18, 36 Teachers, 4 Buildings, No Electricity, No Toilets

School Needs Immediate Funding

Beyamara and the students are desperate for our help. The latest school exam results were not very good. It is clearly because the students cannot study at night as there is no electricity at the school (nor at their house). These […]
