Our Unknown Burundians
Unknown until we get them ID cards!
Hi gang! I know I told you all I would get you info asap. Seems Africa was left out of that memo. We are still working towards raising enough money to register at least 50 families for ID cards at a price of $12 per person. So about $100/family. But. The ID cards are changing Jan 2014 to a card that works for all of East Africa. Way cooler. But communicating with people on the ground in Burundi is a very veeerrrryyyy slow process. So until I have all the info, I don’t know just what I’m selling to you. I know a goat for the party will cost about ten bucks, regardless of if registration things change. So buy a Burundian family a goat for Christmas! Or a new life in the New Year. I will get specifics, but in case you need to spend some money before Christmas, you can contribute at African Road’s Donate Page and make a note that it is a donation for Registering the Batwa. Here’s the pdf in case you want to print one off to share with all your friends, coworkers. Hey maybe even leave one out to inspire Santa :)
I hope everyone who made it out enjoyed seeing the photos as much as I enjoyed sharing them! And thanks for helping me make a difference. I love each of you and hope you have a blessed holiday season.
