WHO WE ARE

THE VISION

RESTORING HOPE TO THE WIDOWS OF BURUNDI

As outcasts in their society, thousands of Burundian widows and orphans are hungry, homeless, and hopeless, with no advocate or resources to meet even their basic needs.

 

We empower you to help the poorest of the poor find healing from their past, dignity for today and hope for the future through sponsorships, housing, micro-enterprise, and vocational training. Learn more about what we do.

 

We believe big change happens one person at a time, both with our widowed sisters in Burundi and with partners like you, which is why we take a personal approach to everything we do. By fostering meaningful relationships one-by-one, we enable you to have a direct impact in the lives of our Burundian sisters.

 

Our philosophy preserves the respect and dignity of every widow. We give the widow the power to call the shots that directly affect her family. We work with local businesses, workers, and use local resources in order to multiply sustainable restoration throughout Burundi.

Join us to make a difference in the life of our Burundian sisters. Become a partner today.
