Burundian Vision (BV)

A Peacebuilding Institute Affiliate
John Bosco Ngendakurio, Founder

This training centre for development of the ex-combatant was created by John Bosco Ngendakurio in Bujumbura town in 2005 in Republic of Burundi.  The organization is engaged in backing and development of the ex-combatant (particularly child soldiers), looking for the peace, fighting for the human rights, and promoting associated groups by the creation of the ex-combatantís business.  Subsequently, Burundian Vision and CEDAC (Centre for Management and Development of Ex-Combatants) joined to form one NGO.  Our vision is to build a proper, peaceful country by contributing to the amelioration of the ex-combatantís future, particularly that of the child soldiers now wondering in the streets and the population in general.  It became a Peacebuilding Institute affiliate in August 2008.
