Mem. of Cal Vardy for Burkina Faso

$1,590 of $4,300 goal

Raised by 33 people in 42 months

Hi, I'm Ian, welcome to my GoFundMe site for donations toward Schools for Burkina Faso!  

In July of 2014 my father, Cal Vardy, passed away, after being in the hospital for 9 months. He spent his whole life in education. I was inspired about Burkina Faso, in my time of reflection. I believe that you should grow and learn from all experiences, especially when these experiences are difficult. I want to have a impact on change, for me, I want this to be more hands on then I have done previously. In his memory, I would like to help build a school in Burkina Faso.

Burkina Faso is currently ranked by the UN as the 5th economically poorest country in the world. It has the lowest level of literacy in the world, with 78% of its population illiterate and only 58% of its children in primary school. No country has ever achieved continuous and rapid economic growth without first having at least 40% of its adults able to read and write.
Below are some videos to explain this project further and the NFPO behind it Buildon.org.

Thank you for your donation!

I am so happy to support this amazing project in my small way. I can't make the event, but I definitely had to donate. What a beautiful thing to do in your Dad's memory, and for the world. As a parent, I can guarantee it would make him very proud. I hope your event is awesome and you accomplish your goal!

This is from my wife, Mary MacDonald, and me in memory of a very special friend, Calvin Vardy. Cal and I go back 60 years. I deeply appreciate his son, Ian's idea to have this educational opportunity in Burkina Faso in Cal's memory. Paul Vavasour
