The Right to Education for All

The area where the initiative is led, Kinama, is one of the poorest areas in northern Bujumbura.

There is no modern school infrastructure in Kinama.

There are too many pupils and too little adequate equipment in the area’s public schools. Children from poor families can’t get education so they turn to crime instead. ALDP started this initiative with the goal of reducing these obstacles by bringing in modern infrastructure for education and by providing the appropriate materials to ensure a high level of teaching.

Preparing Young People in Burundi for Immigration to Europe.

There have been inter-ethnic conflicts and wars in Burundi for over 10 years and this has had a negative impact on the socio-economic situation of the population. Burundi has witnessed violence, violations of different types, famine, displacement of persons, the destruction of the socio-economic infrastructure, children not being put in school or dropping out of school, unemployment, etc.

Given that moving to Europe is currently the dream for the majority of young people in Burundi, due to the unstable socio-economic and political situation in the country, ALDP (the Association to Fight Crime and Poverty) provides support for young people, organises outreach programmes and awareness raising/informative sessions on freedom of movement and residence in Europe for those who wish to migrate.

Education and training for children and young adults with albinism

The situation people with albinism are facing in Burundi is extremely worrying: they are victims of violence and discrimination and have limited access to their economic, social and cultural rights.

Albinism is considered a supernatural phenomenon. People with albinism are perceived to be different and bestowed with good or evil powers depending on the local beliefs. They are therefore held in disdain, discriminated against, and face various kinds of persecution, even as far as kidnap and massacres. Rising violence against albinos can be attributed to the growing belief that their internal organs bring wealth and power to those who possess them, leading to a boom in trafficking.

Often rejected since childhood, albinos have low self-esteem, consider themselves abnormal and are very withdrawn. Firstly, therefore, they need help accepting their condition.

ALDP tries to raise awareness and provide training for albinos in order to curb inequality, and help them join Burundian society, like all other citizens.
