The work of Green Land Alliance is having a powerful impact upon Burundian society

Green Land Alliance is a non-profit organisation involved in leadership development. It arose out of the recognition that there is a crisis of quality leadership in the nation. GLA targets young people who have not yet been corrupted by the system – university students and recent graduates – to provide them with basic (servant) leadership and entrepreneurship skills. The key values include honesty, transparency, integrity and compassion.

The vision is a peaceful and prosperous society built by a generation of visionary and moral leaders. For over five years, they have trained more than 1,500 people, most of whom are leaders of associations, businesses or churches.

Some of the outcomes of the training are new personal businesses, a collective business (with a hundred stakeholders), and changes of leadership practices in churches and associations. From November 2020, GLA launched a nationwide movement of servant leaders. The aim is to have teams in every province by the end of 2022. They thank all their supporters for contributing in making this a reality.

Greenland Alliance also provides business training for the most vulnerable in society. Lately, they have become involved with some of the poorer communities in the city of Bujumbura. They primarily work with women at risk and single mothers, providing training, microfinance loans and health insurance to empower them to earn a living and climb out of poverty.
