Jean Claude Bucumi
Jean Claude Bucumi is a young Burundian who is a master’s candidate in Computer Engineering at University of Burundi in Bujumbura. He is interested in software development and IT in general but is also very committed to contribute to community issues. He got to know IofC in 2010 and has participated in the Eastern Africa Youth Forum (a program of IofC) for the first time in February 2011. He learnt about IofC’s core values (love, peace, purity and unselfishness), conflict transformation, inner listening and much more. Since then, Jean Claude has started a new path and decided to apply what he has learnt from the event. Jean Claude wishes people all over the world could come together to stand up against violence of all kinds and bridge gaps between ethnicities, communities, races or religions to instead allow for a good and bright future.
