Issa is one of the street-connected children who has been attending the Outreach Program at the New Generation Burundi (NGB) centre. The organization provides psycho-social support to these kids with a purpose of healing their internal wounds. We encourage them to discover and develop their inner potential. They have food and also benefit from a hygiene session.
Issa left his home due to the tough conditions he had to face. He ended up on the streets where he admitted life that his life on the streets is very bad and he sometimes begs for food the whole day and ends up with nothing to eat at night.
He got into an accident in May 2021.NGB has been able to cover the medical expenses and take personal care of the child.
His dream is to become a footballer in the future, pursue his education just like any other kid and go back home.
We thank each one of you who have regularly supported us, through Street Action, in helping us create an impact through the work we do, and those who are new supporters and have provided substantial sums to continue reaching out to street-connected children. With your support, we can help more street-connected children like Issa who are still facing challenges being on the streets, who need medical assistance in case of emergencies and moreover having their basic rights met such as having access to food and education.
