Knowing their ideas gave us an image of their lifestyle. We had the chance to look through the eyes of the inhabitants and we realized the despair is incredibly high.   

We passed by many children who were playing, and they showed us how their playing ground looks like. They said they want a football pitch because they dream of becoming professional football players and they are also looking for a nice place toplay in their neighborhood. Whereas some of the children said they want to become doctors, civil engineers and architects.

One of theboys was very enthusiastic about building a swimming pool and a Convention Centerlike in “Kimihurura” in their neighborhood Gitega. He would call it “BIG Convention Center Gitega”. We asked why he wants to do this, and he said: “Every day I see swimming pools on television with so many people enjoying life, so I wish I would have one at home to play in with my friends”, but we are lucky we have our drainage that serve as the swimming pool.” This was an expression of a child with passion, devotion, desire and hope!
