The Story

IMPACT ONE CHILD WITH JUST $1


FACTS ABOUT BURKINA FASO:

  • Average income is .75 cents a day
  • Burkina Faso is one of the poorest countries in the world
  • Children walk an average of 5 miles to and from school
  • 81% of children drop out of school by the 5th grade
  • 89 out of 1000 children die of hunger before their 5th birthday


WHAT IF WE TOLD YOU THAT:

  • $1 FEEDS A CHILD
  • $1 PROVIDES CLEAN WATER
  • $1 PROVIDES EDUCATION
  • $1 GIVES HOPE
YOU CAN MAKE A HUGE IMPACT WITH JUST $1!

Army of the Kind has successfully planted 2 nutrition centers. One in Peru and one in the Dominican Republic. We currently feed over 242 children a day!

Our goal is to plant one in Burkina Faso, West Africa in a town called Loumbila. We visited this village in November of 2016 and we were burdened by the huge need for nutrition and education. (see pictures)

We have been given a big plot of land and now it is time to start building a CENTER OF HOPE on it!

We will build in three phases:

Phase ONE (the reason for this campaign)  -
Nutrition and Education Center- Here the children will have a warm meal a day and also women from the community will learn how to read and write. 97% of women in this community are illiterate and the children don't make it past the 5th grade. We will also begin an Child Sponsorship Program giving people an opportunity to sponsor a child in need.

Phase TWO-
Labor Clinic (for mothers to give birth in a safe and clean environment decreasing the amount of mom or baby deaths.

Phase THREE-
Chapel & Guest House for interns and visitors



THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN

Donate just $1 and help us reach our goal of $30K in 30 days to build our PHASE ONE.

Our team is headed to Africa on October 10th. Help us achieve our goal!
