Mem. of Cal Vardy for Burkina Faso
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!
