Whichever way you choose to support the Friends of Burkina Faso, know that your funds go far and leave a lasting impact on the young women we invest in.

Your funds directly support the postsecondary training of young women like Seydata and Risnata, young women who have overcome huge challenges in their lives. Both are completing their primary school teacher training now. Seydata is the youngest of 11 children. Orphaned at 14, she had to provide for herself. Seydata did domestic work for a family until the head of household threatened to abuse her. In her search of training for productive employment, she was awarded one of our GlobalGiving scholarships. Not only has she escaped a dangerous and vulnerable situation that could have taken her down an all-too predictable path, she feels so lucky and thankful for the opportunity to work with young children as a primary school teacher.

Risnata comes from a subsistence farming family. Her father died when she was seven and her mother had to marry one of his brothers in order to keep her children together. Following middle school, Risnata rose at 5am to prepare and sell street food on the side of the road to pay for her evening classes. But now, thanks to GlobalGiving donors like you, she is completing her postsecondary education in primary school teaching and is looking forward to paying it forward one day. Once she is employed as a teacher, she promises to support the educational expenses of another indigent girl for postsecondary training. “Dear partners of Association NEEED, you saved my life and I will never forget it. Please accept with love these small but noble words: Thank you!”

Tomorrow, you can help us create more success stories like Seydata and Risnata.

Please have the webpage open and ready to go at 9am EDT (6am PDT) tomorrow. And then, please give as generously as you can. Help us continue to make a lasting impact in the lives of young women in northern Burkina Faso!

In their “small but noble words” THANK YOU! Thank you in advance for helping us to make the best use of this year’s Bonus Day on GlobalGiving! And please spread the word wide and far!
