Today, GLO has expanded to supporting over 25 partners and is an internationally respected organization.

How We Work:

● GLO works with visionary local leaders to transform Burundi through education, sport, business, healthcare, and more, bringing hope to thousands of the most vulnerable.

● We identify, equip, and empower the best local leaders of passion, integrity, gifting, and vision for the transformation of the nation. GLO has identified a network of exceptional Christian leaders in Burundi who are now representing multiple projects. We help these partners to develop, enabling them to increase their self-sufficiency. The results are exciting and encouraging despite Burundi’s many challenges.

● GLO has an office ‘on the ground’ in Bujumbura in Burundi, managed by Bosco Mutebutsi. GLO is, therefore, able to manage the distribution of gifts locally and with integrity.

● GLO has rigorous financial and banking procedures and policies so that your giving is secure. We work hard to avoid excessive administrative costs so that the maximum amount of funds can go to our exceptional local partners.
