The children of rural Burkina Faso have little hope. They face a life of hunger from cyclical famines, disease that takes their friends at too young an age, and a life of tending animals and growing millet…when the rains are good.

The Village of Hope offers a different future for these children.

With the approval of village elders, children are sent to the Village of Hope where they are housed under the guidance of “house parents,” fed three meals a day, given a good education, and challenged spiritually. These young people are now healthy, happy and hopeful. They are scoring among the highest on national exams.  They serve as role models to others in the villages when they are home for holidays. They are even requesting that their parents build churches in their villages so they can worship together.

Each year, the Village takes about 60 additional children into the younger grades. This year 456 kids are enrolled in grades 1 through 7.

Your donation will safely house, feed and offer medical attention to these children.
