Our Accomplishments

For the last 20 years, with donations like yours, we have changed the lives of thousands of people in Burundi by giving them hope for a future lived in safe, self-sufficient communities.

We have built 3,220 houses for 3,220 families living in different provinces of Burundi.

We built Iwacu Kazoza School at Ruhagarika Village, in Cibitoke province and an orphanage is currently under construction. Today, Iwacu Kazoza School is providing education to 450 children who now have access to education thanks to your help.

We provided thousands of children with school materials who can now go to school thanks to your help.

Many other projects have been successfully launched, such as the Goat Project, the Women's Farming Project, a Micro-lending Project, the Clean Water Project, Africa America Exchange Project, etc.

During our journey of 20 years, thousands of people have realized and held to the belief that Jesus Christ is the foundation of peace and reconciliation.

The work of bringing healing and hope to a wounded community, through sharing Christ's Love and Compassion in Action continues. This is being done by joining hands with our partners and friends, and friends of friends.

It is people like you who have helped to make all of this happen and I am very grateful to you all. May God continue to bless you in a very special way.
