Floods in Burundi

"In Gatumba and neighboring regions alone, over 100.000 people have lost their homes and livelihoods due to the floods."

This is how Ange Muyubira, managing director of Kaz'O'zah in Bujumbura, describes the situation. Due to extreme and prolonged rainfall, Lake Tanganyika has overflowed its banks in many places along the coast and landslides have destroyed roads, fields and houses in large parts of Burundi. According to climate experts, the floods are related to the El Niño weather phenomenon and are a direct result of climate change. Burundi, one of the countries that has contributed the least to climate change, is now bearing the brunt of the consequences. Local aid organizations and neighborhood organizations set up emergency shelters and carry out rescue operations. The SEZ was together with the Stuttgart organization STELP At the beginning of May in Burundi, together with local organizations Fondation Stamm and Kaz'O'zah to support on site. “In this catastrophe of unprecedented proportions, we are happy to be working with an energetic organization like STELP. Now it’s important to listen carefully to the local partners in order to overcome the situation together,” says Philipp Keil, Managing Director of the SEZ.

Our partner organizations in Burundi support the population with food donations and rebuilding livelihoods. The long-term consequences of the flood disaster also need to be addressed.

Support partner projects such as Kaz'O'Zah's project, which supports 100 women in Gatumba with cross-border trade to the Democratic Republic of Congo.

All donations go directly to our project partners without deducting administrative costs. Please provide your address for a donation receipt.

Thank you!

BENEFIT BW-BURUNDI PARTNERSHIP PROJECT FUNDING

Over 20.000 euros donated for the SEZ Christmas campaign

The Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation (SEZ) says thank you for 20.740 euros in Christmas donations. We use these funds to support projects for people in Burundi and Nigeria.

We would like to thank everyone for their donations as part of our Christmas campaign 2020. The SEZ can use the money to support five projects. For example, the construction of a photovoltaic system in the Ugwaku school center, Nigeria. With the new system, around 620 students will have electricity all day long, for example for computer science lessons.

Burundian actors are receiving financial support for a planned tour in the cities of Bujumbura and Gitega in Burundi. In a play in the local language of Kirundi, they want to show young people in a humorous way the consequences of migration.

The Maier printing company and the Maier families in Rottenburg are using their donation to support two projects. On the one hand, the start-up financing of a breakfast hall with a kitchen for school children in the municipality of Kiganda in the Burundian province of Muramvya. This project makes a major contribution to the well-being of children and their families. On the other hand, Burundian foster families in the provinces of Kirundo and Muyinga, who have taken in former child soldiers and orphans, will receive funding. By covering the costs of school materials, goats and seeds, a contribution can be made to securing the families' long-term livelihood.

The SEZ supports development cooperation projects in Baden-Württemberg, Africa, Asia and Latin America. That's why we rely on donations. If you would also like to donate to the SEZ, you can find it more information here.

Dinner with Franz Untersteller

We are giving away a dinner with the Environment Minister Franz Untersteller. We use the proceeds to support a project in Burundi.

Anyone who has always wanted to ask the Baden-Württemberg Environment Minister Franz Untersteller questions in a very private atmosphere now has the chance to do so. In collaboration with stars4fans, we are giving away a dinner with him.

The proceeds from donations go to the project “Career-oriented empowerment of young adults in Burundi”. Even with completed training, young people in Burundi often cannot find work. In order to improve their situation, they have joined forces in the RJIC association to secure their professional future through joint activities. With seminars and workshops, they strengthen the assumption of personal responsibility and offer training in agricultural techniques, food processing as well as in craft and social professions. 

You can buy the tickets for €2,50/piece here Kaufen.
