ChildCARE Plus in Burundi

ChildCARE Plus and our partner in Burundi, Village of Hope, are committed to helping children escape the burden of poverty through access to education, nutrition, clean water and healthcare.

We have been partners in caring for children in this country since 2010. Each child is chosen by Village of Hope administrators who are familiar with the needs of the children in their community, with how best to meet those needs and as a result give the individual child hope and a future.

More Information: 
•The Village of Hope in Burundi has a total of 3 staff members.
•Currently, one children's home is open, housing 8 resident children.
•Over 40 children receive education at a local government school.

In 2015, ERDO in partnership with Christian Life Ministries (CLM) in Burundi, launched the “Wezesha Project” Microfinance program in the capital city of Bujumbura. The program provides small loans to women, enabling them to expand their business and ultimately empower them to support their families.
