Congratulations to all those who took part in the African GLO Tour 2018.
Cycling an average of 110km a day for 7 days in aid of the GLO’s lifesaving work in Burundi, the ride crossed Rwanda through stunning scenery including a tea plantation, a volcano park and genocide sites.
Our partner, BYFC has been busy with the construction of new classrooms in its primary schools, Future Hope Cibitoke and Makamba. Please pray for the funding to come in for the necessary building work in Gitega and Cibitoke. These schools are in great demand and really need more room.
The Milk for Transformation project is an innovative social enterprise established in a rural community with 400 families and farmers. It is now starting to develop a new base and outreach in Gihanga, Cibitoke, an area of the country most affected by the recent famine in East Africa.
Take a look at this brief summary - just a few examples of what our wonderful supporters helped us achieve in 2017.
Huge congratulations to Simon and Lizzie Guillebaud who have both been awarded an MBE in the Queen's birthday honours list for their years of service to Burundi. Simon set up Great Lakes Outreach (GLO) in 2003 in response to the huge needs of the country. He and Lizzie have stayed committed to Burundi and still live there despite the crisis. GLO brings hope to around 75,000 people every year.
