WE ARE HERE TO TACKLE SOME OF THE TOUGHEST CHALLENGES IN THE COMMUNITY WE SERVE.
Dreaming for Change creates education, economic development and agriculture programs in partnership with rural communities in Burundi. Our programs target rural, marginalized women and girls, school-aged children, young adults and rural farmers so that they will form transformative future for themselves, families and communities.
Dreaming for Change (D4C) is a grassroots nonprofit organization started in November 2017 but officially registered in January 26th, 2018 with the registration number 530/068 under the government of Burundi.
D4C started from scratch with no resources but with the generous support of our individual donors from America and Burundi, the charity was able to start its first women empowerment project in rural Kanyosha where it provided business training and small seed funding to 15 low-income women. In January 2019, Dreaming for Change received a start-up grant from the U.S. embassy in Bujambura, Burundi to begin an entrepreneurship program to help women start small businesses. D4C has a strong diverse board of directors that includes leaders from Burundi, Rwanda, America and Zimbabwe. They all bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in programs management, fundraising and capacity building.
Dreaming for Change’s future plans are to build community centers (early childhood development center, vocational training center, nutrition center and women’s empowerment center ) in remote areas of Burundi that bring new opportunities, justice and dignity to the rural, neglected people.
Enhance human dignity by providing educational opportunities, economic development and sustainable agriculture to impoverished communities.
Create peaceful and educated communities in Burundi and beyond
