The Stamm foundation was founded in 1999 by Verena Stamm, a German nurse, who has been living in Burundi since 1972. The Foundation is a politically and religiously independent local help organization in Burundi.

Our local centers in the capital Bujumbura and several provinces of the country aim to give children, teenagers and disadvantaged members of the community, such as handicapped, traumatized, refugees and single women a new chance of their own existence and a life in decent human conditions after the long lasting war.
The goal is always to establish people´s independent existence and the long-term overcoming of poverty.

The foundation began by taking care of women and children in the numerous refugee camps during the destruction left by civil war.

Nowadays, the foundation runs many projects in the whole country.
Projects:
