Women Empowerment + BFI
What Your Contributions Have Accomplished
One of our Burundian WONDER WOMEN working with BFI is Odette. She, along with Michella, Esperance and Estella are very active in our Women’s Empowerment Clubs. We recently reached out to our donors asking for funding for a training trip to Rwanda for these women. Their trip included sessions at the GASHORA GIRLS ACADEMY (GGAST), a school that partners with local and international institutions in providing superior education for girls in farming, technology, community involvement and leadership, NEW EXPLORERS GIRLS ACADEMY, a private girl’s school specializing in STEM, and MWENDO SCHOOL, a remote primary school. On this trip, these women were taught how available technology can be used to support and improve the farming activities already in place in Burundi...
The next CRITICAL step in this process is to fund the purchase of phones, computers and software so that this important work can continue. Thank you for your generosity! Read more about Odette, Michella, Esperance, and Estelle's accomplishments here.
