For fun, Bruno enjoys soccer, bicycling and hide-and-seek. He attends church activities and Bible class regularly and is in primary school where his performance is average.

Your love and support will help Bruno to receive the assistance he needs to develop his potential. Please pray for him.
Bruno lives on the plains of Fada Secteur 11, home to approximately 5,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, brick walls and tin or thatched roofs. The primary ethnic group is Gurmanceba and the most commonly spoken language is Gurmancemamooré.

The regional diet consists of maize, beans, chicken, fish, bread, beef, rice, goat and millet. Common health problems in this area include malaria and HIV/AIDS. Most adults work as subsistence farmers and earn the equivalent of $20 per month. This community needs schools, scholastic materials, income-generating activities, food and improved housing.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of CDE Maranatha BF 203 EE/SIM Secteur 11 Fada to provide Bruno with Bible camps, regular medical checkups, community service opportunities, school fees, textbooks and school supplies. The center staff will also provide hygiene education for the parents or guardians of Bruno.
Burkina Faso is a landlocked country in western Africa. It's slightly larger than Colorado and mostly flat with undulating plains and hills in the west and southeast. The country's climate is tropical with warm, dry winters, hot, dry summers and a three-month rainy season.

Burkina Faso, with a population of 13 million, is one of the poorest countries in the world. With no coastlines and ports, the country has few natural resources, fragile soil and an unequal distribution of income. About 90 percent of the population is engaged in agriculture, (mainly subsistence) which is vulnerable to variations in rainfall. The prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the country is 1.6% of the population. French is the official language, although native African languages belonging to the Sudanic family are spoken by 90 percent of the population. About 50 percent of the population is Muslim, 40 percent practice indigenous religions and about 10 percent are Christian, both Catholic and Protestant.

Originally colonized by the French, Burkina Faso gained its independence in 1960. Repeated military coups during the 1970s and 1980s were followed by multiparty elections in the early 1990s. Burkina Faso's high population density and limited natural resources result in poor economic prospects for the majority of its citizens. Every year, thousands of seasonal farm workers seek employment in neighboring Cote d'Ivoire and Ghana where they are adversely affected by instability in those regions.
