Norm Ridley
Natalizia Nadeau
I am a mother of four and have been teaching in the school system for 28 years.  I love working with children of all ages, helping them develop their talents and knowledge.  I feel passionate that every person should have the opportunity to do so and have worked towards this goal all my life.  It has been a long held dream of mine to one day visit Africa and work with such beautiful people in need.  I am so happy to be able to work with this generous, compassionate group of friends at Help Burkina Faso Canada and I am very excited and grateful for the opportunity to use my gifts to help the people of Burkina Faso.
Audrey Burm
I have always wanted to do missionary work.  After visiting Burkina Faso in January 2017 with Sjef Theunissen of Help Burkina Stichting in the Netherlands, He asked if I would consider starting a sister charity in Canada.  I did not hesitate.  I knew this is what I wanted to do.  I am so grateful to have a supportive husband and friends that have the same passion in their hearts.  I truly hope that we can make a difference in the lives of people of Burkina Faso by continuing the work started by Sjef and Father Willy Burm.
There is a special place in my heart for the people of Africa after spending time there in my 20's.  I am proud to be a part of Help Burkina Faso Canada and to contribute to the basic needs of these beautiful people.  I am a wife, mother of 5 sons, and especially love to work with young people.
