City of Angels

Located in Ruyigi in eastern Burundi, this recreation center and income-generating activities was inaugurated in 2003. Apart from physical trauma, the long years of war have made young people lose the ability and courage to dream for a better tomorrow. 


The City of Angels came as an answer to this problem and a light of hope for a multitude of young people. She always reminds the young people of Ruyigi that they too deserve to be able to enjoy culture and recreation. Thus, they have an opening on the world through the cinema, the library, the cyber internet and the swimming pool. They are also trained in theatrical play, traditional and modern music and the Burundian drum.
