It’s Back-to-School Season 2019-2020!
School stars in Burkina Faso on October 1st, 2019.
Our goal for this school year 2019-2020 is to help 50 kids with school tuition, backpacks, notebooks, books etc ….
Just a reminder with $30 you can be a sponsor to a kid!
We are hoping to build our first-class next school year 2020-2021. We are collecting any donation and are counting on your generosity to provide a safe and good environment to the children of Give Me A Lift.
Posted on October 1, 2018, we were able to give full scholarship to 30 boys and girls for the school year 2018-2019.
To ensure the kids don’t feel different than the other kids, we offered them a Christmas party where every kid was given a present. Santa visited them for the first time.
Posted on November 2018, one of our good friends offered a 5 hectares land (Cassou village located in 150 kilometers from Ouagadougou the Capital of Burkina Faso) that we can used for any Education/Health related projects. The land was officially received, and all legal paper works regarding the land were done under Give Me A Lift.
In February 2018, some technicians were sent to locate water (drilling). Fortunately, two spots were located.
In this land, our goal is to build an elementary school to begin with, along with a primary health care center. With the water, we are looking into to provide the villagers and their children drinkable water, creating gardening (vegetables) and other activities that could either be used primarily for providing lunch to student while in school and the extra will be used to help cover different costs.
Soon, we are planning to build training center (welding, carpentering, and mechanic) to prepare the kids with skills that they can used.
The dreams and goals are there, however we are lacking funds and resources to make these come true.
