Marguerite Barankitse and Maison Shalom: Promoting love and peace in Burundi

Marguerite Barankitse established Maison Shalom in 1993, amidst armed conflict and massacres in Burundi. She has since taken in and educated 20.000 children who lost their parents to war and AIDS, but continues to fight for lasting peace in the country, reconciliation and a better future.
