Who are the PEOPLE INVOLVED?
HBFC BOARD OF DIRECTORS
From Left to Right
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.
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.
I am, married to a wonderful man (Daniel), a mother and a friend. I love to sing, have tea with friends and help others. I spent about 3 months working with the Missionaries of Charity in Gallup,New Mexico before I was married and continue to support their work of helping the poorest of the poor. I am excited to part of Help Burkina Faso Canada so to make a difference in the lives of others for the glory of God.
