The good news coming out of Burundi
Features collected by TFF • July 11, 2005

You haven't heard much about it. It's a good story from Africa. About peace. About a very difficult peace process that is by no means secured for the future. But it offers hope for the future of the 7 million people in one of the world's poorest countries.

Should it all fall apart and a new genocide happen - then you will hear about it. Why are good stories, stories about peace, never newsworthy? We've collected a few news stories from the last months. Troubles, indeed - but there is hope!

TFF works there - to help civil society monitor the official peace process. Read more here.
