Updated: Aug 13, 2018

Ingrid Lynca Ninani currently lives in Bujumbura. She serves as the country coordinator of a youth led association composed by burundians living in Burundi and abroad. Their mission is to work towards a Burundi with no street children. She wants to see a Burundi where the fundamental rights of having a meal and an education are met. Having spent the most part of her childhood in Tanzania and Kenya, 10 years to be exact, she got to experience reconnecting and falling in love with Burundi all over again. She says that, while It was an amazing experience, it was also very challenging. She credits her amazing friends who walked her through (Re)Evaluating her culture and country. She now considers it a great honor to be able to help others identify and reconnect.
