Burundikids e.V. is a non-profit, non-denominational and politically independent organization which aims to give kids, youth and their families in Burundi a chance at a worthwhile future. Burundikids e.V. was founded in May 2003 by nine founding members.
Our work: transparent, non-bureaucratic and flexible
Local co-ordination, organization and cost control are managed by an experienced project manager with extensive knowledge of the area. Former nurse Verena Stamm-Ndorimana (Fondation Stamm, www.fondation-stamm.org) has lived in Burundi since 1972. Acting on her own initiative, she set up the first two homes for 50 street kids and orphans in 2000 and the years thereafter during the turmoil of the civil war. She is well versed in the political and cultural characteristics and peculiarities of Burundi and has numerous contacts with government agencies and organisations. Today, about 200 Burundian colleagues work in the organization, from head quarters' management to homes for children and schools.
The contact between Burundikids e.V. in Germany and the Fondation Stamm in Burundi is therefore direct, non-bureaucratic and transparent, which is absolutely necessary for providing effective assistance and maintain real partnership.

Ok, so who exactly sends the post cards? Philipp, our communication officer. Worked in Burundi from 2006 to 2015 and now in Germany - with regular visits in Burundi.
Sorry that we can not send any stamps or cards directly from Burundi at the moment. You receive cards with stamps from Germany - but we always try to send Burundian motives!
