Center for Children in Need SAINTE THÉRÈSE

Loumbila, Burkina-Faso

The Sainte Thérèse de Loumbila Center for Children in Need, located near Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) and founded in 1995, is a facility that welcomes and supports orphans and children in distress from 0 to 18 years old.
Its objectives are to educate and train orphans and/or underprivileged children; to support children from vulnerable families with donations; to provide shelter, food, and clothing.
Beyond material aid, the project is aimed at facilitating the integration of children into society, by making them autonomous and responsible.

In the words of Dub inc

In 2017, we went to play in Ouagadougou as part of the "Rendez-vous chez nous" festival. Singer Alif Naaba, with whom we made a song ("Enfants des ghettos" on Paradise), came with us on that journey and showed us around the center he was sponsoring. We were moved by the team's incredible work, their benevolence towards the children, the energy they deployed to ensure schooling, their management of the nursery, and also by the development of a local economy with such initiatives as growing spirulina, or setting up a bakery and pizzeria.
