On 20 March 2017 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported:
In northern Burundi a group of 90 young people are harvesting their first crops --beans, maize, and potatoes -- but this is no ordinary smallholding. The farmers come from both sides of the country's ethnically charged civil war; some were orphaned by the conflict, while others are the children of those who were the killers. Forty percent of the farmers at the project in Gasorwe in Muyinga province are Hutu, 40 percent Tutsi, and 20 percent Batwa pygmies, Burundi's most marginalised people.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of world peace, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
