About our Partner Church
Burundi is a small, land-locked country in East Africa, bordered by Rwanda and Tanzania with a population of 11,000,000. The two official languages are French and Kurundi. The fledgling Unitarian Fellowship located in the small city of Rutana is working to expand its congregation from its original handful of founding members.
We were introduced to the fellowship by Rev. Fulgence Ndagijimana, who founded the first Unitarian Church in Burundi. In 2015, he had to flee for his life for encouraging human rights. He now lives and preaches in Canada and devotes much of his life to the support of Unitarians in Burundi and neighbouring countries.
