Founded in 2019 by Musa Bamba and Alice Innocent, Beauty Out of Dust (BOD) is an organization built on the premise of empowering people in Burundi who are facing economic, social, and cultural challenges.
BOD is determined to assist in creating a world in which the difficulties
leading many Burundians to become refugees no longer exist. To accomplish
this goal, BOD is committed to providing aid to support the education of
Burundian youths and helping communities through self-sustaining programs.
The goal is to increase stability and decrease issues related to hunger, diseases,
In Burundi, some of the efforts BOD has accomplished have been sending 100s of orphaned students to school, partnering with other humanitarian figures to end period poverty, and supplying families with care packages during the holidays. BOD understands that the most crucial aspect of any mission is people, hence the emphasis on community and the people. Burundian proverb, 'ubumwe buramota,' translates to the act of togetherness embodying a pleasant fragrance. Therefore, BOD invites donors, leaders, friends, families, students, and anyone who wishes to push our mission forward to join its efforts in continuing the work through education and community-based solutions.
