Our partners

Without which nothing would be possible

The partner

in Burundi

It is obvious that nothing would be possible without our principal partner in Burundi, namely the Burundian Judo Federation which is actually one of the two parties leading the Turikumwe project. Created in 1991, it crossed the civil war thanks to several enthusiastic and impassioned judokas.

Since 2006, its executive team does all its best to promote judo in order to make of our sport a wonderfull development tool.

International Judo Federation

Vision for the Judo for Peace program in the International Judo federation

The Judo for Peace Program uses the philosophy of Judo in combination with the sports educating system to attain peace and reconciliation in conflict regions. Judo shall in practical action show that these sports fundaments makes this sport to be the best tools for peace
keeping, reconciliation and society building.
The founder of Judo, Jigoro Kano made this statement: ”I believe that world peace and the welfare of humankind must realize through the spirit that judo brings about.” and “When you practice judo, you must perfect yourself and contribute to society through this practice, and
you must emphasize the importance of this during your teaching to others.”

These two statements, based on respect for all human being and education to understand others culture and behavior, are the philosophic basis for the Judo for Peace program.

The Turikumwe project uses the educational and human values of Judo as its fundament. As the director of IJF Judo for peace Commission it was a great pleasure to receive information of this project and decide that IJF and the Turikumwe project shall cooperate to strengthen our
effort to help children in Burundi. I am sure that by cooperate can reach great result together.
