Boura Children's Center
Boura Children's Center is located in the small village of Boura, Burkina Faso in West Africa. It is a safe place for children that are in distressed situations due to poor income, sickness, or most commonly, death of the mother.
Boura Children's Center provides these children with basic needs such as food, clothing, water, and shelter. Medical care is also provided by the Bridges of Hope Clinic located nearby.
Bicycle for a Girl
In developing countries, many girls are forced to drop out of school because they live too far away or risk dangers such as violence or kidnapping on their walking route. Your gift of a bicycle will provide safe, speedy transportation for these eager young students. In developing countries there are far too many reasons that girls may not attend school. One of them is that they cannot get to the school because of the distance from their home. Your gift of a bicycle can give a young girl the oppurtunity to get an education and help break the cycle of poverty!
Build a School
Can you imagine attending school under a tree? Many children in impoverished communities around the world do exactly that. Without adequate shelter and educational supplies many children stop attending school altogether.
Your gift to construct a school and/or renovate existing schools offers a safe, productive learning environment that can make the difference in the lives of the children and their communities.
