The children

Throughout this year we not only want to give you regular updates of some of the work that is happening, but let you know of some ways that you can continue to partner with us to make a difference in Burkina Faso.

So many people don’t even know where Burkina Faso is. That was true for me the first time I was in the country. Once I saw the immense poverty coupled with Burkinabe people filled with hope and dreams I was compelled to do something for Burkina.

That leads me to the question I want to encourage you with all year long, “What will you do ‘For Burkina’?”

We have people considering putting on races, selling coffee or hot chocolate, or challenging others to match a gift. Your gift could be used to provide clean water, educate children, or empower women.

We would love to provide you with resources to help you make a difference ‘For Burkina’. Here are some ways we can:
