Martin Nyaboho was just a baby bishop when Five Talents was founded twenty years ago. In 1998, church leaders representing over 160 countries endorsed Five Talents as a Christian response to the challenges of global poverty at the Lambeth Conference.
Today Martin serves as the Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Burundi. He oversees a church without about one million members in a country that has been affected by conflict, poverty, and war. With a strong commitment to reconciliation, peace-building, and serving the poor, Archbishop Martin has witnessed first-hand the impact of his church's partnership with Five Talents.
