Who We Are

Help Channel Burundi is an inter-denominational Christian organization working to deliver aid and development programs in rural Burundi. Established in 2000 by young Burundian leaders in response to the need created by the Burundian civil war, the organization was officially recognized by the government in 2003 and is a registered not-for-profit organization.

Over the years, Help Channel Burundi has been transformed from an aid and environmental organization into a multi-sector development organization. Using the theory of change to plan interventions, Help Channel Burundi works in the areas of food security, infrastructure development, agribusiness, conservation agriculture, child-centered community development, and network building. Working to match donors with community needs, Help Channel Burundi creates zones of intervention where donors overlap in order to progress toward comprehensive and holistic community and rural development. Interventions are primarily in the provinces of Kirundo, Makamba, and Rutana with additional programming in Cibitoke and Bururi.
