My story

This year, the focus is on Christian Aid's project in Burundi, where malnourishment and poverty affect more than 70% of the population, putting them at the edge of survival - food can be scarce, disease prevalent, and jobs hard to come by. Chances are there's no electricity or running water.

Aline is pictured above with her bicycle. You can read more about her below - Aline found a lifeline through Christian Aid funded small business training and was enabled to set up her own business. Now Aline and her children have real hope for the future...

You can help ensure more people in Burundi get the skills and knowledge they need to fulfil their hopes and ambitions.

Please donate and help more people push back against poverty this Christian Aid Week. Thank you!

How your money helps

Poverty pushed Aline to the brink. She was abused, homeless and hungry. But Aline pushed back harder. With Christian Aid funded small business training, she achieved what had seemed impossible, a vital income for her and her children.

Fundraising this Christian Aid Week will ensure more people in Burundi get the skills and knowledge they need to push back against the inhumanity of poverty.
