Join the cause and invest in our partnership
with FVS-AMADE Burundi today.

We are honored to partner with FVS-AMADE Burundi – an organization that has served its community for 21 years!

Phase I of our partnership was graciously funded by the Segal Family Foundation,
Phase II still needs to be funded.

What do we ask of you?

Help us fund Phase II! We are aiming for $15,000 during the month of May.
Oh, and the first $5,000 will be matched – so your donation will be doubled!

What is this partnership all about?

FVS-AMADE has self-identified their need for improved and sustainable Monitoring & Evaluation practices – they know their organization is impactful, but don’t have a system to consistently and reliably measure and demonstrate their impressive results. Addressing this will be the crux of our partnership work.

Did you know? 

  • FVS-AMADE mission statement: to protect orphans and vulnerable children and promote the economic autonomy of vulnerable households for the ultimate well-being of children.
  • Nawe N’uze: One of their core programs, in which groups meet weekly and put savings money into 3 boxes to help orphans: loans, school supplies, and emergency needs.
  • There are now 1,200 Nawe N’uze groups, with 49,000 members, caring for 45,000 orphans.
  • It was founded by two sisters, Spès Nihangaza and Caritas Habonimana.

How did we encounter FVS-AMADE?

Initially, I met one of the FVS-AMADE Staff Members, a gentleman named Rémy. I think I crossed paths with him during a coffee break between sessions (at the 2016 Global Summit on Community Philanthropy).”

“He learned what we were about, I learned what they were about, and he remarked that it was interesting what we do – help organizations with their self-identified challenges – because they actually had some very clear self-identified challenges.”

–Maya Casagrande, Grants & Reporting Specialist for eA
