Born in Burundi and serving in Mozambique, Dieudonne Karihano is a missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church. He is based in Inhambane and works as an agriculturist and community developer.
As a child Dieudonne was influenced by missionaries and mission activities in his village. He particularly enjoyed summer programs (VBS) as well as a Saturday morning program where the children were encouraged to memorize and recite Bible verses.
Dieudonne earned his Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and Natural Resources from Africa University in Mutare. Shortly before his graduation Dieudonne interviewed with and was accepted into the Missioner of Hope program through GBGM.
Restarting the agricultural program after the civil war in Mozambique was one of Dieudonne's initial challenges. He also assisted in developing curriculum for a professional school and coordinated the agricultural project in Cambine. Dieudonne currently teaches agriculture in a vocational school and seminary and oversees food production for an orphanage and boarding hostels along with his other duties.
"I grew up in church. As a child I loved being at church. I enjoyed visiting missionaries with my mother. It was then that I started having ambition on becoming a missionary," Dieudonne shares.
Dieudonne is a member of the United Methodist Church in Cambine.
