LockDown Short Talk - Going to Bat for Rural Burkina Faso

Suzanne Fournier, a British-Australian resident of France, visited Burkina Faso ten years ago and was charmed by a rural area called Niou, about 50 miles from the capital, Ouagadougou. 

Realizing that the inhabitants were struggling to survive on very little, she and a friend decided to do something to help, and set up an association called Silmande-Les Amis de Niou.  Since 2010 they have been working with the people of Niou to improve their living conditions and to help with the education of children.  In this talk, Suzanne will tell us about her experience and how the association has evolved over time.
Join us on Tuesday, March 31, from 2:30 to 3:30pm to hear about Suzanne’s “foray” into deepest Africa.
