12-year-old British girl raises funds to build a pygmy widow's home in Burundi

12-year-old Millie flew to Burundi at Easter to help build a new home for Suavis, a pgymy widow with three children. The press and BBC picked up on this story and you can listen to the interview below - please click on the grey arrow on the left below.

Building Homes for Widows and Children

During the Civil War in Burundi many villages near the border were attacked frequently. The women fled across to neighbouring Congo. When they returned they discovered their homes had been destroyed and their men slaughtered. These women are the poorest of the poor, with simple mud shack homes which leak and no skills to earn a decent living.

GLO's newest partner, J-Life Burundi works with these widows and orphans, helping them get out of debt and building new homes, like the one pictured here. As well as building homes we provide support to the children and women. We are planning a training centre to help them find good work and lift them out of poverty for good.
