Nurturing Eco-Warriors in Burundi

10708403_10152823691144351_2078034930_nThe Lycee Saint-Esprit (Holy Spirit High School) is the only Jesuit-run secondary school in Burundi. While it is not as large, in comparison to other Jesuit schools in the Great Lakes Region, it is the ‘School of Excellence’, where intelligence and passion for nature have became part of the tradition. On November 21st, 2014, the environmental club of the school hosted the CYNESA Executive Director, Mr. Allen Ottaro, and organized an interactive forum during which they shared with him their local experience, hopes and desires for a clean and healthy environment.

This environmental club is like a tree nursery. The majority of the students are in the early years of their studies. What is most impressive, is their courage, their responsibility and their sense of creativity despite their young age.
