Full Plot

The Project "UMUCO" (from the word "UMUCO" which means "LIGHT" in Kirundi, the local language of Burundi) is set to be a guiding light and inspire the next generations and millions of Africans, showing that dreams are achievable with hard work. Project UMUCO is designed for Bruce Nishimwe to fly solo around the globe with a single engine Aircraft. With Project UMUCO, Bruce will be the first black pilot native of Africa to conduct a solo flight in a single engine airplane around the globe. Succinctly, generations in Africa and around the world will regard Bruce's achievements as highly inspirational. Moreover, the project will help in fundraising efforts for Burundi Orphan Relief (BOR). It is worth noting that BOR undertook the noble cause of lifting thousands of orphans and homeless Burundian children's from poverty. BOR exists to provide a safe environment for at-risk children to live, grow, and prosper. It seeks to address the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of children by providing a place for children to live under the care of loving adults. BOR has partnered with a local organization, Maranatha Mission Church in Burundi to provide volunteers for spiritual and emotional enrichment through group activities and meals taken together. Medical and educational needs are assessed and addressed by Maranatha Mission volunteers. Micro-economic grants are made to selected individuals and projects to provide the opportunities to grow businesses - benefiting the community. Without jobs, adults cannot provide for their children. As children grow and transition to adulthood, BOR, in partnership with Maranatha Mission Church, provides job and career training in sewing, clothes making, and embroidery through the gift of sewing machines. BOR seeks to provide a holistic solution to the daunting problems of orphan children and poverty. It is an honor for Bruce Nishimwe to help in BOR fundraising efforts by all possible means.
