Under the leadership of Pastor Edmond Kivuye, the Eglise vivante de Jesus Christ helps many people by paying their school fees when they no longer can afford it, feed the hungry, and helping them getting medical care. More of these good works are done through African Revival Ministries  still under Pastor Edmond leadership, where they have two schools in the capital city of Burundi, Bujumbura. One of them is the only english speaking school in the country which follows the oxford curriculum (King's School International). Still in the capital city ARM (African Revival Ministries) have two hospitals, one which is manly surgical and has the only X-ray which you can have the result right after they have taken you the X-ray picture.
In Burundi ARM has other project like one to help HIV positive people who are hopeless and cannot afford the medicine. In this center, they just don't give them, food and medicine, but they also encourage them with the world of God. ARM has a project which helps the pygmies in the country side. This tribe is one of the three but the least which is only 1% of the population. They teach them to read and write using the bible, ARM has also built a village for them and recently a clinic, so that they can be treated equally as other tribes.

After the war which took place in Burundi, many children were left without parents due the birth of CRIB (Children rescue in Burundi) orphanage. This orphanage have more than 300 children raised in a God fearing environment and also speaking English. In 2004 near the border on Burundi and DRCongo happened a genocide which took many Congolese refugees lives. At that time the first thing ARM did was to open an orphanage and taking all the children, because they did not have where to stay, the orphanage was called "New Hope Center", to give a new hope to those innocent children.
In Rwanda, ARM and Eglise Vivante helps people with HIV by giving them hope and encouraging them with the word of God. They do support them with medicine and food. They also helps different orphans by paying for their school fees. Eglise Vivante Have more than 50 different churches around Rwanda.

In DRCongo, ARM and Eglise Vivante does continue helping people mainly on the side of Uvira where a big population of "Banyamulenge" still living in the middle age of not having water, House, school, to get what to eat, women have to work for almost 3 weeks to get only a meal of 3 weeks. After seeing the need in that Region, Eglise Vivante and ARM under the leadership of Pastor Edmond Kivuye, they decided to build houses for the population, school, orphanages. With the help of some engineers from Canada, they were able to provide electricity in some houses using the great water falls that are around the mountain of Uvira. The Eglise Vivante and a number of church members bought machine so that women won't have to spend 3 weeks making ready a 5 day meal, but now they produce more for the family and also get time to rest and being with their families
In Senegal, ARM and Eglise Vivante are doing a great work knowing Senegal as a Muslim country, when people receives Christ as their savior, they are persecuted, so ARM established a refugee center for women, because women are persecuted to the point of being Killed. So that refugee center receives them and help them by giving them job... ARM do have another center for young boys called "Talibe" These young boys, are not sent to school by their parents so that they won't learn about the western education. They send them to the Muslim school to learn about the Koran, their teachers send them during the day to beg for money (without their parents knowing) and there is a certain amount they have to reach if they don't they are severely punished. ARM takes those young boys, first teach them about the word of God and put them in schools.
