Ending Hunger in Burundi
In Kibezi, Burundi, the indigenous Batwa are perpetually struggling to survive while being denied land rights. Their work as pot makers does not provide enough income to meet the cost of survival in a community still recovering from Burundi’s civil war. Unemployment estimates in the Kabezi region are as high as 99% and most Batwa families are living on less than one dollar a day.
Jagen and Etienne are social innovators working in Kibezi to bring education and income-generating projects to this marginalized community. Their next initiative is a pig project, which provides families with food and becomes a sustainable source of income from selling piglets after only six months.
PLEASE PRAY FOR:
- For the successful implementation of the pig project in 2019
- For the Batwa community to know the love of a God who is the Bread of Life
