Growing future leaders

When he first joined the orphanage, Thacien just wouldn’t stop eating. He has done so well he recently won a scholarship to one of the best schools in Burundi, Gitega International Academy (GIA). Thacien's face lights up when he talks about school. He's joined the basketball team, he's popular and well respected.  His leadership qualities shine through. There is hope for Burundi thanks to your support for children like Thacien and schools like GIA.

Life expectancy increases by 20 years!

Where do you go when your home is the forest and you are banned from where your people have lived for centuries? Such is the lot of the Batwa people (or pygmies) who are treated as less than human in Burundi. No loos, no schools, no water, no healthcare, no jobs and worse, meant their average life span was only 27 years. Your support has already helped us increase this by 20 years in some Batwa communities and this amazing work continues to grow! 

Good work!

TripAdvisor often features our hotel, KCC as the number one hotel in Burundi's capital! But KCC, or Kings Conference Centre is SO much more than that. For 160 people, it is a lifeline. 20 staff are employed there. Each has an average family size of eight. In a country where jobs are a rarity, this is a priceless gift. Any surplus made by KCC goes to support the work of SU, one of the most respected charities in Burundi. KCC is truly a light in the city, doing business with integrity.

and their supporters...

"After visiting Burundi, it was impossible not to do something to support both the clear needs and the wonderful work of the GLO teams. Securing a donation from my company was a small step in helping the malnutrition project work." Murray's contribution has helped hundreds of refugee children. Do get in touch if your company might like to help.

"GLO is phenomenal. The people we are partnering are so special.  Their faithfulness and courage in the midst of very difficult circumstances blows me away. It was so humbling to meet all of them after many years of praying for them. The future of Burundi depends on them. Our prayers are making a real difference. Please keep praying and giving. Thank you."

"I was privileged to take part in Bike for Burundi a couple of years ago, to meet the partners and to witness the incredible work on the ground. Now we support GLO as a means to serve God, as an act of confidence in Simon's efforts and a faith in a better future for Burundi, a country unfortunately overlooked and left behind."
