This report was prepared by the project steering team which is made up of ten Club Presidents and staff members of SFL Burundi. The Country Director of SFL Burundi and ASFL East African Regional Director, Aimable Manirakiza, approved this report.
Student leaders over at SFL Burundi have just completed a project that aimed to bolster their members’ knowledge of the principles and foundations of the capitalist system. Through the support of the Atlas Network and the Eastern African Policy Center, SFL Burundi distributed 500 books that discuss the benefits of capitalism.
