My story

We have run a house to house collection in the village for many years to support the vital work of Christian Aid.

This year we have volunteers to cover most of the old village between 14th and 20th May but if you don't receive an envelope or prefer to give online, please use this link to show it is part of our local fundraising effort.

We dream of a better world. We want every child to be able to have the education they need to break free of poverty. We imagine a future where crops are not flattened by cyclones and washed away by floods and your donation to this appeal, however small, can help us to help Christian Aid achieve this dream.

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.
