Thanks to your generous contributions, FBF is able to support a number of community-based projects in Burkina Faso. Projects are described in the current, and past, editions of the Burkina Connection.
Non-restricted - for any FBF-supported project :
FBF supports a range of projects to assist villagers to improve their incomes and the health and education of their children.
Lambs Support Girls’ Education Project :
An $80 donation supports 13 years of education for a young village girl through this self-help program. The first year, each girl receives school materials and a lamb. Her parents raise & sell the lamb, & buy a new lamb and their daughter's school materials, each year thereafter.
Post secondary Training/Education for Girls :
Donations to this project enable girls to gain education/training in professions important to Burkina and to contribute to the health and welfare of their families, communities and country.
