BFI Hands No Pad

Join Us In a Mission Worthy of Your Spirit

BFI AR CoverWelcome to Burundi Friends International – an organization that is committed to Fighting Poverty, Educating Youth and Providing Hope in the one of the most economically challenged places on earth: Burundi, Africa.

Burundi is a small country in East Africa about the size of Maryland, located between Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Rwanda.  Burundi is divided into 18 provinces, with its capital in Bujumbura.  While the primary languages of Burundi are Kirundi, Swahili and French, the primary language of business (and associated opportunity) throughout Africa is English.

Are you interested in making a genuine difference in the lives of individuals, while working to put an end to their poverty?  

Do you believe that a lasting solution is not found in a hand out, but through education and economic empowerment?  

Are you prepared to provide hope to those who are ready to undertake the work necessary to move themselves and their communities forward?

If so, the following video is a good first step on your journey:



Education & English Clubs

Knowledge is power. BFI works to expand opportunity in Burundi by providing learning materials to the seventeen provinces to propel education and support Burundians in their search for knowledge.  Learn More about BFI’s Education Pillar


Economic Empowerment

Here at BFI, we believe that self-sustainability and economic empowerment are created through education not hand outs. We have been working with women coffee growers to achieve this and meet our goals of ending poverty in Burundi.  Learn More about BFI’s  Economic Empowerment Pillar
