H.E. President Pierre Nkurunziza, Republic of Burundi
The President of the Republic of Burundi, H.E. Pierre Nkurunziza, has created a project for his country. In his early years in office President Nkurunziza built schools with much success. He now intends to build one hundred new villages within the country of Burundi. The major focus of this project is to make it easier for the Burundian people to have access to services and thus give them a better life. When you create a village you create a community and when you have a community it is easier to create and bring in services. President Nkurunziza is asking for people and other countries to donate materials such as, galvanized sheet metal and cement so that he can teach his people how to build for themselves.
Dr. Clyde Rivers, Honorary Ambassador at large for the Republic of Burundi said, “Projects like this really develop a nation because when you teach people how to build they can build forever. This is the new Burundi!”
