Sports for Love and Peace in Burundi

We are raising funds to support the "Sports for Love and Peace in Burundi" campaign by the NGD Foundation through its Star Sports Department that provides youths with space for socialising and opportunities to train in sports, earn new skills and develop talent that will help them become successful in sports, responsible persons, and caring citizens. 

The Sports Department currently oversees 19 sports clubs in 13 localities of 3 provinces (Makamba, Rumonge, and City of Bujumbura) located in the South-Western part Burundi. These sports clubs are run on daily basis through 3 Sports Academies which provide basic and professional training in Soccer, Running and Cycling Athletics, and Basketball. 

Our Vision.
Through sports programs by the NGD Star Sports Department of NGD Foundation, we strive to create a Burundi led by well-informed and responsible citizen leaders who possess the discipline and skills they need to build the country they deserve.

Our Mission.
The NGD Star Sports' mission is to promote positive youth development and citizenship through high quality sports instruction, top-tier academic training, and an integrated life-skills program that encourages young members to focus on the future, avoid risk and engage in the world with a global perspective.

Our Belief.
At NGD Star Sports Department, our purpose is to kindle the love for sports. We believe that every child can benefit from playing sports and pride ourselves in promoting fair play, positive attitudes, teamwork, self-respect and personal self-esteem.

Our Promise.
We promise to promote joy, ignite passion and develop skills. Our programs are designed to develop both technical and personal skills, building a foundation for youth development both on and off the court.

Our Sports Academies.
Here are the sports academies of NGD Foundation in Burundi: the Star Football Academy that operates 13 soccer training and talent development centres for girls and boys in 3 provinces, the Star Athletics Academy that operates 3 athletics (running and biking) training and talent development centres for girls and boys in 3 Communes of Rumonge Province, and Star Basketball Academy that operates 3 basketball training and talent development centres (still projects) for girls and boys in 3 Communes of Rumonge Province.
