A great number of Burundian refugees are well-educated people, like teachers, university professors, scientists, business people, engineers, musicians, journalists, doctors and psychologists who have no chance of practicing their profession. Maggie is establishing a Community Centre that will function as a meeting place for all these different professions. Here people can teach other refugees whatever they have of professional skills, and House of Peace will offer space on their premises to start classes and training. “The last year has been a time of loss and remembrance. Many have lost their lives in the struggle for a free and just Burundi. More than 300 000 Burundians forced into exile are now living a life on the brink of what is possible,” she says. 2

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
