World Vision in Africa: Burundi

One of the smallest countries in Africa, Burundi is a mountainous and landlocked country in east-central Africa. After several years of conflict following its independence from Belgium in 1962, peace remains fragile, and Burundi’s people struggle against desperate poverty.
