Happy New Year!

Our Continual Growth & Progress

July marks the beginning of our new fiscal year and the official start for our 11th year of fighting poverty in Burundi. 
To mark our new year, we are happy to announce that we have reached 55,374 students in our BFI English Clubs. That’s an increase of 59% since the printing of our 2017 Annual Report!

With all of our recent growth, it’s a good time to take a look back and see all that we have accomplished thus far. Check out our 2017 Annual Report here and see how your help has impacted Burundi!
