Your sponsorship will go beyond meeting basic and educational needs. Your sponsorship will provide for a child’s spiritual and emotional needs by presenting the gospel and demonstrating God’s love.

Barkwende is a kind boy who lives with his parents and siblings in a very poor village of Burkina Faso. His mother stays at home to look after the house and kids. His father works as a farmer but with little rain the last few years, he's struggled to make a reliable income. He struggles greatly to meet even their most basic of needs.

Barkwende is a very shy child who enjoys playing soccer with his friends. His favourite subject in school is French and his favourite colour is red. He likes learning about the Bible, and his favorite verse is John 14:6. Barkwende plans on becoming a doctor when he grows up.
