So many young people are studying but they don’t have the opportunity to work, so I will be helping young people like me to start their own businesses!
Kersy is a living demonstration of the power of long-term, strategic investment in people.
She arrived with her sister, Leslie, at Homes of Hope Gitega aged just five, after their father had died. Her house Mama and the father figure of Homes of Hope Gitega treated Kersy as their own child. “They became my parents – they helped me to grow as any other parent would… They taught me about God. Now I’m saved and I know Jesus because of them.”
Kersy thrived in school and now attends university in Bujumbura where she is studying Business Management. “I know it will help me in the future, and it will teach me how I can help fellow young Burundians like me. So many young people are studying but they don’t have the opportunity to work, so I will be helping young people like me to start their own businesses!”
Thanks to our supporters providing generous and abundant investment in Kersy over many years, giving her a stable, loving home, she is now able to work towards the goal of supporting unemployed youth in the nation. And so the ripple of hope, opportunity and faith spreads further across Burundi!
We want to thank you for your prayers and gifts that are transforming the lives of children and teenagers in Burundi. By doing so, you are giving them the opportunity to know and serve the risen Lord Jesus Christ.
Without your generosity, the lives of those such as Kersy, would not be where they are today.
