has not been very rainy.

They are suffering even more for this severe drought than normal, when they usually have 3 months
of rain and 9 months of drought. The crops are suffering, the animals are suffering, so the village
people are suffering. Burkina Faso is usually dry and dusty this time of year, anyway, but it seems
has not been very rainy.
Nevertheless, the people seem pleased we are here and have welcomed
us with open arms and open hearts...

Dateline: December 1st, 2008
Women to the World's President, Doris Aldrich,
recently returned from a month-long visit to Burkina Faso.
Here, Women to the World's Curriculum Learning Program
was introduced, and formed a new alliance with a very special
school, the Lycee Academy, providing educational services to
women living in the most unreached and primitive areas on earth.
Once these women are empowered by even the most rudimentary
communication, math, and social skills, they are able to
exponentially improve their lives.
It is miraculous that such opportunities are before us in 2009.
Our supporters are now able to provide vital partnerships improving the quality
of life that exists in this part of the world. There
is perhaps no greater calling in life than to be able to provide the skills and
education to help these women and their children learn, work, prosper and thrive.

The URGENT NEED: Health Care
With the help of a new partner in the African nation of Burkina Faso,
Women to the World is able to assist in education and counseling of women,
many of whom have fallen prey to the sex trafficking abuses. A team of
physicians will be traveling with our educational team this year.
Please contact us if you are willing to travel, train, and work with widows,
orphans, and young women.
