UPCOMING TRAINING & EVENTS

Coming Soon!

Stay tuned for upcoming training and events in Burundi.

Before I attended an ALARM training, instead of teaching others, I kicked them away. I never became a model that others should follow. This attitude caused much family turmoil.

The ALARM teachings changed me and edified me simultaneously. I learned that servant leadership means marching into the very steps of Jesus, becoming a model to others and serving rather than being served.

During the training, I even became determined to drop the teachings half way to rush home and reconcile myself with my family! When I apologized, my wife couldn’t believe her eyes!

ABOUT BURUNDI

Burundi has suffered from a series of tribal-based wars that have raged off and on since 1972. Some of the worst violence occurred in 1993 and the following years, when more than 200,000 people were killed and another 200,000 displaced. Since 2004, there has been relative peace, but Burundi faces the formidable tasks of reviving a shattered economy and forging national unity. The need for leadership development and reconciliation in Burundi is as great as in the other countries ALARM serves.
