Summary

We support vulnerable families by developing education and co-operative projects to generate income, foster community building, and strengthen traditional methods of self-sufficiency through agriculture, or small business activities. With these programs, we create economic sustainability and growth, leading to reduced poverty while increasing quality of life. One of our main goals is to break the cycle of poverty and create projects that foster economic sustainability and growth.

Challenge

he long crisis that Burundi has experienced in last two decades has had a disastrous impact on all sectors of the country, resulting in: the increased impoverishment of the population, loss of the social and cultural underpinnings, destruction of several socioeconomic infrastructures as well as the weakening of the administration and the whole of the system of governance of the country. In the community of Buterere, Burundi, 70% of adults are illiterate and families living below poverty line

Solution

We support vulnerable families by developing education and co-operative projects to generate income, foster community building, and strengthen traditional methods of self-sufficiency through agriculture, or small business activities. With these programs, we create economic sustainability and growth, leading to reduced poverty while increasing quality of life. One of our main goals is to break the cycle of poverty and create projects that foster economic sustainability and growth.

Long-Term Impact

Livestock donation is an efficient method of promoting immediate relief and long-term sustainability. For example, a donation of only $50 is sufficient to purchase one goat. The goats produce milk, providing essential nutrients for growing children. The families ensure sustainability of the donation by breeding their goat - each animal can be bred twice per year and produces two to three offspring each time. Therefore, the benefit of one goat quickly multiplies.
