Living in Burundi
Situated in Eastern Africa, in the Great Lakes region, Burundi is a relatively small country with an area of 27,834 square kilometres and a population of 10.5 million. It is bordered by Rwanda, Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Burundi’s history is characterised by instability; having been an independent country for around 200 years, it was colonised by Germany in the early 20th century. Following World War Two, it was handed to Belgium until it gained independence in 1962. A series of political instabilities saw it turn from a monarchy to a republic in 1966 but ethnic cleansing and genocide resulted in it becoming one of the world’s poorest countries. It is a largely rural society with only 13% of its population living in urban areas; this is reflected in its economy as a predominantly agricultural sector with 90% of the population employed and 50% of the GDP being due to agriculture. 34% of exports are coffee products, with tea also being exported. There are also large exportations of gold. Political corruption, weak infrastructure, the proliferation of HIV/AIDS and hunger have made Burundi the least happy nation in the world according to the World Happiness Report in 2016. The culture in Burundi, whilst diluted by civil unrest, is largely based on local traditions. Basket weaving, drumming and strong oral traditions characterise traditions within the region.
