The charity is aimed at the local community on the shore of Lake Tanganyika in Burundi providing and teaching them to look after livestock e.g. breed pigs and cows; to teach them how to plant trees and shrubs to reverse the process of the land becoming desert; providing sponsorship money so that young people can go to school; to train people to become ‘small holders’ growing cash crops. Project activities controlled from the UK, but implemented locally by our partner charity in Burundi include: first to provide a water pipe to the village where most of the local community live; second to provide a fence around a plot of 3 acres of land. We will seek to work with other charities to get plants and seeds to cultivate this plot. The intent is to create the equivalent of a UK small-holding for the early provision of education and a few animals as a shared resource to the community. The local Ubuntu charity will organize suitable skilled trainers to improve the husbandry and livestock management skills of the local community
