Bidding “Adieu” to Hope Fund Burundi
Effective April 30, 2021, PEER Servants has bid “adieu” to our Burundian microfinance partner, Hope Fund Burundi. We are very excited to continue to partner with PEER Teens Burundi through their youth empowerment and education programs as they faithfully extend more of the kingdom to the Burundian people. Our partnership with Hope Fund Burundi started in 2017 and we witnessed significant potential for kingdom impact. But in 2019, changes in senior management and governance led to, in our humble assessment, an organization that did not meet our standards for a global partner. We are committed to being a very good steward of the resources entrusted to us, and after an extended period of trying to establish a strong partnership, the PEER Servants Board has decided our kingdom efforts are better devoted to other organizations. We will maintain a presence in Burundi through the amazing young people in PEER Teens Burundi and the PEER Teens Scholars program as we invest in their inspiring efforts to transform their respective communities.
