Maison Shalom was born on the 24th of October 1993, in the middle of the atrocities of the Burundian civil war, to turn on the light brought by forgiveness, and to create a new generation, capable of breaking the cycle of violence.
We are happy to be here with you to share the joy of living together in dignity despite the difficult condition of exile.
After 3 years of exile, we had every reason to sink into bitterness and despair. But, thanks to your hospitality and generosity, you have comforted us. You have given us the courage to live with dignity and hope away from our country until the day we will return to our homeland.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
Founder of Maison Shalom
