The Hussein Foundation and Honorata Ndirampeza are working together to build an orphanage in Burundi. This was a dream of Honorata’s son Hussein and the Foundation has been working on making this dream come true since his passing in 2011. The board of the Hussein Foundation is a group of diverse people who started raising money through organising events and receiving donations.
In May 2018 the Hussein Foundation has started construction. The orphanage will be built in three fases. The main building, which is being built right now, will contain important facilities such as a kitchen, bathroom and sleeping residence. The second and third fase building will create more room which will make it possible for the orphanage to eventually house 30 orphans and 6 mothers.
At this moment the Hussein Foundation is, in addition to coordinating the construction, is raising funds for the realization of the second and third buildings. They are doing this by organizing events such as Groot Dictee Bommelerwaard last year with Rotary Zaltbommel and Lions Bommelerwaard. And helping with the annual Sint Maarten celebration.
