A great end to 2014!

Another terrific month, and a great end to the year at New Generation. We would like to thank you for supporting us and the vision that we have for the youth in Burundi and for the whole country.

A NEW GENERATION OF ACHIEVERS!

On the 19 December, New Generation children made us proud by receiving excellent results at school. 18 of them (out of 46) were among the top ten students of their classes. Only 3 got a percentage that was below average.
We were also amazed to see that 8 out of the 10 street children that we reintegrated back to school were among the top five students in their classes.

Well done guys!!

FANTASTIC CHRISTMAS PARTY FOR THE CHILDREN

We had such fun celebrating Christmas with the children, thank you to everyone who donated and supported it! We were able to buy new clothes and shoes for them, give them a delicious Christmas lunch, play games and go to the beach – what a day! We did it together with the children with Oasis church, and they even performed some songs and dances that they had been practicing together!

Thanks to you, we have been able to touch many lives in Burundi. We pray that you will continue to witness the goodness of God in your life. May you have a blessed Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2015!

Give Christmas to a street child in Burundi

This December we’re raising money to support our Street Child Program. We want to give the children we work with, the Christmas they deserve. But the money raised will not only be used for Christmas day. With your help we can give them food every day, a place to sleep, the equipment they need for school, and a safe and loving environment.

  • £5 will buy lunch for 5 children
  • £15 will pay for food and school fees for a child for one month
  • £50 will help us provide somewhere for the children to sleep

Looking back on an exciting year

2014 has been an exciting year for New Generation.

This year, we have been able to feed more children than last year, and on a more regular basis. In September, we reintegrated 10 more street children into a local primary school and ensured that each child had the necessary school equipment. We now support 36 children in total.

We took a group of former street boys to Brazil to take part in the Street Child World Cup – and came second!

Through our Youth Engagement Program and Youth Entrepreneurship Program, we challenged young people from different parts of Burundi to rise up and contribute to the development of their country.

All this would not have been possible without the generous contributions of friends and partners of New Generation Burundi and without the grace of God. We want to take this opportunity to say thank you for making many children and young people smile in Burundi!
