Our Vision


Our vision is to have a Burundian friendly society that will enable all Burundians to reach their potential. As an umbrella organisation, we want our members to view the CBC as an entity that best represents them. So the work of the CBC must reflect the values that which members hold dear.

We will listen to, and act upon, the needs of Burundians and we will foster a feeling of togetherness for all of our membership.

Our priorities include regional development, to support the growth of grassroots local CBC associations. We also want to grow the befriending network and we will continue to develop the Burundian-friendly society within the CBC and build a culture of total quality.
