Helping 25 Burundian high-risk children and their families escape poverty & child-labor through small education & livelihood supports.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
In the republic of Burundi in general and in its capital city in particular, the entire population, especially children and adult youth are suffering from the unprecedented poverty and are left with no better alternatives. Sexual exploitation and child labor are predominantly present there. There is vast number of children joined armed groups and others are being exploited in several manufacturing workshops, mines, dancing clubs, hotels, restaurants and garages, etc. Some others have become street children, drug addicts and they represent a big threat for peace and security in our community. Right now, we are receiving numerous requests from some of those kids who are looking form ways and means to improve their living conditions. We need to meet this demand but we have no means to finance this project. So we need your help.
How will this project solve this problem?
Sponsoring a child will help affected children rebuild their lives; provide affected children and their communities with education, hope and opportunities for new life. We will buy school supplies, uniforms and help them launch small livelihood programs - livestock farming of rabbits, guinea pigs, chiken and vegetable gardens.
Potential Long Term Impact
As the children are educated they become aware of their rights and will not allow any person to trample upon those rights, and this will ultimately end the circle of child poverty, child labor and child exploitation.
