Amos was born in Burundi but resides in the United States where he serves as an NGO project assistant and interpreter. He was introduced to IofC in 2016 as a Caux Scholar where he learned that one is only limited by unbelief that s/he cannot create change. CSP also motivated him to diligently continue spreading peace through his organization that seeks to empower Burundian youth to live peaceably as a development strategy. Amos also supports civil society organizations based in his home country as a consultant and ambassador and is one of the leaders behind ReTurn a movement that mobilizes the diaspora to reconnect with the places they have traced their lineages, empowering them to reclaim their sense of identity.
