The Gazelle Foundation's goals are to find ways to improve life for all people in Burundi. This is a unifying effort that does not favor a specific tribe or group. Secondly, because Austin is home, the Foundation gives back to the local community, specifically helping Austin's youth. A key challenge in Burundi is that financial gifts do not often get to where they are intended. We initially addressed this by providing a grant to a well-established relief organization in the country who was already providing tangible relief to their beneficiaries. After completion of the Songa Project in 2009 we located a manager who has administered every water system since. We are pleased to say that 100 percent of your donations go directly to our work, thanks in part to a grant covering administrative needs.
The Gazelle Foundation's primary focus is to provide access to clean water for the people of Burundi. Because of a concerted effort to maintain this focus we have been able to serve more than 23,000 citizens of Burundi as of December 2013. Having a clear, succinct mission allows us to execute it effectively and provide tangible results to beneficiaries and our donors. Through this accessibility to clean water, the people of Songa, Burundi have seen a dramatic decline in the existence of waterborne illnesses, an increase in school attendance, and an overall positive change in life.
