Burundi Chapter

WE, The World Burundi Chapter shall establish human and community development programs in line to support, promote the Sustainable Development Goals under the 11 themes of WE, The World.

“WE” will establish partnerships and collaborations with the other Civil Society organizations in Burundi to maximize and amplify social change through unity.

One of our core objectives is to promote an understanding of how environmental, social, cultural, economic and political factors impact the world, demonstrate an understanding of other people’s cultural values, beliefs and perceptions which differ from others and raise consciousness from individuality to a collaborated and collective effort. In addition to our inclusive objectives, the organization may organize campaigns and events exclusively for charitable, human development and educational purposes, more specifically to maximize social change on a global scale that works for all. In order to deliver this impact successfully, we align our organizational processes, selected thematic areas and working methods to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.

Project title: “Promoting Women Using English in Rural Areas”

  1. Introduction

English is one of the key tools that assist successful careers and great achievements for the current generation. The current Burundi Constitution states that 40% of leadership should be women, but those positions require English as a tool in order to face global leadership responsibilities. In Burundian society, women are not empowered or encouraged to pursue higher positions and higher goals. Education Watch Burundi aims to empower women by equipping them with basic tools such as English and computer skills.

A short survey was done by Education Watch Burundi in the Southern side of Burundi in Bururi and Makamba, where the English clubs we support are located. The questionnaire was submitted to young women in high school and University – their main priority is to learn how to use a computer which can be used as a tool to attract as many women as possible  to learn English.
