Home-Start Burundi

We welcome our newest associate member, Home-Start Burundi to the Worldwide network! On the 6 July 2017 Home-Start GIRIWANYU as it will be known in Burundi was legally registered and we are delighted that they will soon be helping families in their country in CIBITOKE AND BUJUMBURA (Bujumbura Rural). Leana Sinamenye, who was a Home-start volunteer herself for a while in Norway had the vision for helping families in Burundi. She approached Home-Start Worldwide for advice and support about starting a scheme because she believed that the support we offer could help the many families who face tremendous hardships every day due to abject poverty following a catastrophic war. Leana and her Executive committee have worked tirelessly to get Home-Start started. They have an office, have appointed a coordinator and already have many families wanting support. We wish them success in everything they do.
