Overview

The East African country of Burundi  is a small country with one of the highest population densities in Sub-Saharan Africa, and one of the highest birthrates in the world. Its total population is about 10.5 million total people, who mostly live in the rural areas. The population of the capital city of Bujumbura is only about 331,000 people.

Burundi is  one of the top 5 poorest countries in the world, with 80% of its population living below the poverty line. Although on the decline, HIV continues to be a problem in Burundi as well. According to unaids.org and UNICEF there were an estimated 89,000-120,000 children orphaned in 2012 due to AIDS.

Children Available for Adoption from Burundi: ·        

Children available for adoption from Burundi range from older toddlers to young teens. Burundian children are of African descent. Most children will have brown eyes, black or dark brown skin, and black or brown hair. Children are available for adoption due to extreme poverty, abandonment, or death of one or both parents in most cases. This program is very small and families should be open to a child age 3 years or above.

When adopting from Burundi, consider you will be adopting the following:

  • Healthy boys and girls 18 months and older (applicants must be open to a child at least 36 months old)
  • Children with special needs and older children
  • Two or more siblings at one time
  • Two or more unrelated children at one time

Families considering adopting a child will have access to the child’s background and medical information before travel. 

Parent Qualifications:   In general, parents should be between the ages of 30-50.  Exceptions are often made, Please contact an adoption agency working in Burundi to inquire about your specific circumstances. 

Marital Status
Couples married at least five years are welcome to adopt.

Children in Family
Families with children are welcome to adopt from Burundi.

Single Applicant
Single women may not adopt.

 Travel: 

You should expect one 3-4 week trip, which includes time in Burundi and Kenya, in order to bring your child home, and are likely to travel 6-12 months after receiving your referral. Accommodations in Bujumbura vary. French and English are widely spoken. You will be accompanied by an in-country representative throughout your stay.

 Timeline: The time frame to complete an  international adoption from Burundi is currently estimated at about 14 to 30 months, depending on the time families take to complete their dossier paperwork, their preferences for age and special needs, and country processes. This time frame is subject to change
