Burundi’s economy has been recovering slowly in the wake of the civil war, ethnic tensions and a dictatorship. The subsistence farming economy was greatly reduced after the war, which has led to millions of people being food-insecure and reliant on foreign aid. SPARK’s work in the country has focused on boosting the agricultural sector to increase food security, as well as programmes aimed at peace-building and leadership among youth.
