In 1994, due to the ethnic conflict that cost the lives of many loved ones, Alice Sibomana left Burundi and sought asylum in the U.S. She began working in the missions department at Times Square Church in 2002 and continued there for 10 years. In 2012, she felt it was time to return home to serve God’s people in Burundi.
That same year, Alice and her mother, Therese Sibomana, founded Ziga Foundation. Birthed after years of outreaches to children on the streets as well as those in deaf communities, the foundation currently runs a feeding program and provides housing for former street kids. Alice is involved in the administration of the foundation, Bible studies, training, teaching, tutoring and counseling.
