On November 29, 2010, the community of Luhwindja and the Banro Foundation celebrated the opening of the new Chirburhi Primary School. With 12 classrooms serving almost 600 students, a conference room and library, the Chiburhi primary school is the largest of the three schools built to date by the Banro Foundation.
