IRIBA, Culture, Peace & Development

IRIBA is a non-profit association "ASBL" operational in different countries: IRIBA Europe under Belgian law, IRIBA Africa under Burundian law, IRIBA America under Canadian law and IRIBA FM under Congolese law..

Umoja Youth Project



Based on these experiences, IRIBA mobilizes this summer 2018, young people from Europe, Burundi, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, as well as the Democratic Republic of Congo around the construction of a Youth Entrepreneurship Center in Nakivale, Uganda.

But the construction site is only a drop in the humanitarian ocean, the importance of the action lies mainly in intercultural exchange, awareness of distant themes of Western daily life through a strong experience in a poorly known society. This is why UMOJA participants will benefit from an awareness of various major issues such as migration, peaceful conflict resolution and globalization. The trip will also include a program of activities and intercultural exchanges that will take place during the evening and a few days of excursions and visits to the country. UMOJA, it's not a simple trip. UMOJA is meetings, intercultural exchanges and especially a development project. An experience that can only be unforgettable and rewarding ...

My little country with a big heart

I tell you about my country in a humorous way
Because the truth is more than dramatic
I am a young man among others having lost his roots
A small country with a big heart, Burundi, my origins
SN is his good meal on the way ...

Youth is the future of tomorrow. In Belgium as in Burundi

How, then, do not support a project that brings together and opens perspectives of solidarity on both sides? On the one hand, young Belgians will return as privileged witnesses of a world to be built. Their action has helped to provide a roof and draw attention to a community ...
