JAVESCA FEEDS IN BURUNDI
Our goal in Burundi is simple. Everyone is fed.
Ongoing Feeding Efforts In Burundi
HARVEST INITIATIVES, BUSIGA
Before Javesca Feeds partnered with the small village of Busiga, nearly all of the children in this village went to sleep on the ground with hunger burning in their stomachs. Parents worried whether their children would starve or survive. Anywhere between 2 and 6 children every month reportedly were losing their lives due to lack of food. After 6 years of partnership, change is evident.
Through our partnership with Harvest Initiatives, Javesca Feeds helps fuel an effort that provides each child in this village daily meals! Our Harvest Outreach partners purchase the food locally and bring the food to the community with hearts of love and grace.
Daily Porridge. We are thankful to be able to help these 115 children and 11 elderly adults through providing porridge each day, which provides nutrients necessary for growth, development, and strength.
School Meals. In addition, we fund access to 2 daily school meals for 152 additional children from 85 families through an initiative offered by the World Food Program.
These children are saying in school and gaining an education, rather than spending their days hunting and begging for food. What a difference you help to make in helping to equip and empower them!
Many more children and families in neighboring villages are still impacted by extreme hunger. We can partner to make a difference!
Grace Church Family Empowerment Initiative
To help provide relief to families struggling in ongoing hunger, malnutrition and food insecurity, we have partnered with Grace Church in an initiative that helps to empower growth and independence over time, while providing periodic, consistent assistance to over 80 individuals from 14 families near Bujumbura.
They use funding from Javesca Feeds to acquire food locally, and provide two weeks of food every-other-month for each family. We are thrilled to be able to provide support that provides hope and security and enables families to not only survive but to thrive!
