A time of great change

As you will know, New Generation moved to their new site last year - a piece of land, in Bujumbura, bought through the generous support of Street Action supporters. Last month, I was part of a small team from the UK who visited New Generation and we were able to sit and hear the vision their leadership team has for the future, on the site that will provide the base for that vision.

Various temporary buildings have been erected over the last year to enable New Generate to operate from the new site, but preparations for laying foundations for the first permanent building are about to begin. Building will take place in phases over the next few years, the extent and speed of which will depend on the level of funds that can be raised. But however quick or slow this progress is, the simple reality is that it is an exciting, if daunting, time for the organisation.

Since Dieudonne Nahimana began providing support to a few children living on the streets of Bujumbura over 20 years ago, New Generation has always had a nomadic existence. So the development of the new site is so important for their long term security and stability, as they continue to look to improve the care they provide for children within the project, and reach out to more children on the streets of Bujumbura. All as part of a vision to see the country of Burundi changed for the better, change driven by the young people of the country.

Thanks again. To all of you who have regularly supported New Generation, through Street Action, for many years. And those who are newer supporters and have provided substantial sums to make this possible.

We are truly grateful.
