Who we are


The Association for the Promotion of Communities' Health for Development "SACODE" is a Burundian support and mentoring, apolitical and not-for-profit organization. It was born in 2011 as a result of the needs felt by the founding members to promote good practices aimed at promoting health, for the development of communities.





Our vision is that communities in Burundi live in environments where complete physical, mental and social wellbeing prevail, and where individuals and groups can identify and achieve their aspirations, fulfill needs, and influence their environments or adapt to them.





Our fundamental objective is to promote Communities' health through information, education and sensitization on good practices leading to health and development, so that communities enjoy healthy lives and live life positively.



Fundamental values


Dignity, Responsibility, Cooperation, Innovation, Integrity and Respect
constitute the foundation of all our actions.
