Our partner in Burundi is New Generation, an NGO working with street children in Burundi’s capital, Bujumbura. New Generation is one of only a small number of charities working with street children (predominantly boys but an increasing number of girls) in Burundi. It is staffed by Burundians, some of whom are former street boys. New Generation has responded to a lack of social protection and care for street children by providing homes, education and re-integration back into their communities where possible (often many miles away up-country in rural Burundi). New Generation primarily sees itself as a nation-building project, focused on rehabilitation, reconciliation, developing the next generation of leaders for Burundi.

The Burundi team’s participation was supported in the UK by Street Action.
