That all people matter to God is one of our core values. We who work in Burkina Faso have targetted the poor, those that others might not consider or value. The desire to help the poor has brought us to a ministry with widows. Finding the right project can be a challenge. But the Lord has been with us on this journey and we see His enabling as we launch a project with moringa.

Thanks for the story and the video.  Does CAMA do microfinancing? THE Ohio State will be beaten this Saturday- sorry. It was a great world series.

The Alliance in Burkina Faso has several projects to help people to begin a small business. This is usually done through CAMA services that works with our national development organisation, ACCEDES. Because of the unique situation of many of our widows, we look for a project where they would not have to worry about repaying money or managing money, but could be paid quickly for work done or a product produced.

my wife and I hold an organisation called the votetx of hope children's fund which was started by us in 2013.after Finnishing my school life....it mainly helps the unprivillaged,needy,poor..and mainly the galchild in Uganda.
we are able to fund our ministry and support a few children as per our hands reach.
take some back to school,feeding the poor,and clothing the needy......
we would have helped more by Gods grace but that's the little we can offeras per God is our witness ..
