Resilience project supports vulnerable families

More resilience for vulnerable households' bright future

Through a resilience project funded by the World Food Programme (WFP), World Vision targeted the most vulnerable households in three communes after realising that they were lacking basic needs. The aim of the project is to reduce food and nutritional insecurity to increase the resilience of rural populations.

A total of 5,698 vulnerable households - including Amand's - benefited from the project. The father of five shares his story.

World Vision has been working in Burundi for more than five decades. In 1995, we opened our office in Bujumbura, the country’s capital.

Over the past 30 years, our work has transitioned from providing emergency relief to investing in long-term development programmes. To date, we bring hope and assistance to more than 1,000,000 children each year.

Through a wide range of holistic, integrated projects, we work to ensure children and their communities have access to much-needed clean water, education, food, healthcare and the chance to live a life of fullness.

Improving the well-being of children in Burundi regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender, is the foundation and the motivation for everything we do.
