Burundi is a country in east-central Africa, south of the Equator. The landlocked country, a historic kingdom, is one of the few countries in Africa whose borders were not determined by colonial rulers.

God Led Us

This is the poorest country in the world, and the home country for our Director of Finance, Steve James.

We are asking the Lord how we can help the people of Burundi. It is our hope that in the near future, we can not only start Harvestime, but also provide sustainable projects for the churches and villagers.

To begin with, we are piloting a chicken project, which we hope will then become a project implemented in other countries after its success in Burundi. The greatest challenge in Burundi is its devastating poverty. People are so hungry they eat pig food. But the greatest asset of Burundi is its singing.

About Burundi

Burundi’s capital, Bujumbura, lies at the northeastern end of Lake Tanganyika. The old section of the city comprises buildings from the German and Belgian colonial periods, as well as a central market filled with hundreds of vendors’ booths. The country’s second city, Gitega, is also its cultural capital, containing the national museum and several schools. Gitega lies near the southernmost source of the Nile River and a spectacular waterfall, Chutes de la Kagera.
