Burundi, The Turi Wacu project

Following the civil war in Burundi from 1993 – 2006, many widows and children sought refuge in the capital, Bujumbura. The widows sent their children to beg in the streets and often resorted to prostitution. Turi Wacu, which means ‘We are together’, is a project initiated by local people to provide these families with an alternative to their previous lifestyle.

This project is built on the value of the vulnerable women supporting each other within an association. They encourage and inspire each other to live new lives. Creative Solutions provides small grants to help them start and continue small businesses as well as emergency funding in the event of sickness.

Important Note

Your donation will be sent to Creative Solutions and we will distribute it.

Whilst the trustees will always do their best to follow your wishes, ultimately the allocation of funds will be at their discretion. Your donation will be used in the most appropriate way as determined by the Board of Trustees.
