The RIDE will happen as scheduled on Saturday, October 3, 2020! However, Covid-related health risks and operational challenges won't permit us to assemble in large groups. So instead, we'll gather virtually, self-organizing in smaller, covid-friendly teams or groups as permitted.
Let's keep our RIDE location communities going! Register for the same RIDE location as last year - or, if you are new, register in a location you're within an hour of.
Our mission is to support children (of all ages), help families, empower teachers and promote change in Burkina Faso
Our objectives include:
provide shelter, food, health care and educational support to children in need
enable youth and young adults who show interest and capability to further their education by providing financial assistance
supply age appropriate teaching material, wooden blocks, made in Burkina Faso, to the schools
capacity building: deliver workshops to local pre-school teachers and student teachers in child centered pedagogy and how to use the blocks in the classroom
