ChildCARE Plus in Burkina Faso

ERDO has been working in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso for many years. There are currently over 120 children sponsored at the "Word of Hope".

Word of Hope is under the leadership of Bishop Michel and Lydia Ouedraogo. The Children's Village is a residential school where several hundred children live and learn. These children are not orphaned, but rather are from remote villages where there are no schools. The parents recognize the benefit that education makes and allow their children to spend nine months of the year living at the school.
