Impact: Empowering the Underprivileged

Janvier founded Dreaming for Change, a nonprofit that aims to address poverty and illiteracy by providing quality education, economic development opportunities and sustainable agriculture to impoverished communities in rural Burundi.

Their dream is to empower 10,000 underprivileged rural women by providing them business and entrepreneurship skills with seed funding to start their small businesses.

Janvier began an initiative of training a group of 105 unemployed young people from rural Rumonge Province on how to start small businesses, applying the knowledge and skills he got from the Design Thinking class at YALI.

Janvier has been able to provide business skills and seed capital to 15 women, who are now generating income
