Raising a Generation of Leaders for the Transformation of a Broken Nation.

Burundi is a small country in the heart of Africa, torn apart by reccurent civil wars. This has stunted growth in the country, leaving it among the world's poorest nations.

Youth for Christ Burundi is raising up a generation of leaders, in order to transform Burundi. We do this through a number of different projects, including; 'Homes of Hope'- which provide orphans with a loving home to develop into responsible adults, to Gitega International Acaemy- our boarding school. Here, we are elevating the status of Burundian scholarship and developing Godly East African leaders for our future through academic excellence, a commitment to integrity, and developing an intimate relationship with Jesus. 


  “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” –Proverbs 22:6

This year is looking to be a productive one for BYFC. We're building and opening new medical clinics and schools, in addition to continuing the many projects we have already started. We are thankful for all of the volunteers who are coming to visit us this year, as well as those who are not able to visit, but are showing us much love from afar. The Lord has done so much that we are grateful for, but there is still much to be done before. We welcome with open arms any additional volunteers who would like to help with our various projects.

Thank you for visiting Burundi Youth for Christ's website. We hope that you find all that you are looking for here, including information about all of our projects, child sponsorship, staff and more.
