Information which might help

Burundi, one of the poorest countries in the world, is nestled directly below the infamous country of Rwanda. The countries have shared the same colonial history and the, same tragic ethnic cleansings and genocides that have occurred since the 1960’s. Since the end of the recent 13-year civil war (1993-2006), the recovery has been extremely slow and the level of poverty has deepened.

The GDP per Capita in Burundi has been lower than that of Haiti since 2010. Education has become a costly privilege in Burundi; only a few finish high school.

Electricity, clean drinking water, sanitation and other basic infrastructure are absent in the majority of schools.
