new generation, burundi

New Generation originally worked with the children orphaned during the genocide of Burundi’s civil war, responding to the lack of social protection and care by providing safe places to sleep, health programs, access to education, skills training and mentoring – working towards reintegrating the children into the communities they came from.

Praised nationally as an example of best practice when working across tribal groups, New Generation, Burundi continues to respond to the results of years of civil war amongst the surviving younger generation on the streets, providing services through engagement, intervention and reintegration.

Another major area of their work is in leadership training. Working through established youth clubs, they teach the value of reconciliation and peace building. Through this network, they are now delivering two new programs: the Youth Engagement Program, which empowers young people to make their voices heard and to influence the political, social and economic agenda of their country; and the Entrepreneurship Program, which helps young people start their own enterprises to generate an income. It also offers coaching in business development and financial control.

In providing a foundation and a platform for the young people to play an active role in reconciliation in their communities, New Generation are moving towards their ultimate goal: to develop the next generation of leaders, believing these young people are the future and the hope for Burundi.

New Generation continues to actively campaign to raise awareness of the issues Burundi’s young people face, as they try to rebuild a sustainable future.
