The Earth Charter in Kirundi

The Earth Charter has been translated into Kirundi by Vital Nshimirimana, a University for Peace student from Burundi.

Kirundi is the official language of Burundi, and is also spoken in parts of Rwanda, Tanzania, and DRC Congo.  More than 15 million people speak this language.

For Vital, who is a CSO leader in Burundi, working at the “Réseau de Citoyens Probes” (Network of Honest Citizens), the Earth Charter is a relevant education tool, especially for a society going through a healing process after more than 15 years of deadly conflict.

Find in this link the Earth Charter translation into Kirundi.

And here the Earth Charter in many other languages.
