World Vision has been working in Burundi for more than five decades. Our work has morphed from providing emergency relief to long-term development programs.
To date, we bring hope and assistance to over 1,000,000 children (out of which over 40,000 sponsored children) and their communities in 18 Area Development Programs (ADPs). This means that communities have access to much needed clean water, education, food, health care and the chance to live a life of fullness. We work with those who are the most vulnerable - the poor and the oppressed - regardless of the person's religion, race, ethnicity or gender.
