Eugénie arrived in Burkina Faso last Monday. She has already started on many activities despite the temperature, which is getting higher and higher together with the humidity.
Presentation to the women of the village of Fon
Eugénie just arrived and we had planned a presentation for her at the village of Fon. Over 125 women were attending this meeting, mainly about sexual education and the presentation of the kit of protection for their periods.
Actions pour les Besoins des Femmes (ABF)
Actions for the needs of the women (ABF) is the association we have started to manage the project of the kits for protection.
We have found a space at the office of ASAP to set up a workshop where the kits will be produced. Marion did a fantastic job to organize the space while I was in Ouagadougou to meet Eugénie at the beginning of the week.
We needed to be ready for the visit of the head of UNICEF in Burkina on Wednesday morning.
UNICEF with another association, WATER AID, are looking for protection for girls in schools. May be an interesting, fast development for ABF.
Mid-term vacation for the students at the LAP
Before the 2 weeks’ vacation starts, the general supervisor had the good idea to organize some competition assisted by the sports teacher.
Proverb of the week
Le vrai bonheur coûte peu; s’il est cher, il n’est pas d’une bonne espèce. Chateaubriand
True happiness costs little; if it is expensive, it is not of a good kind. Chateaubriand
Tout bonheur est un chef-d’œuvre: la moindre erreur le fausse, la moindre hésitation l’altère, la moindre lourdeur le dépare, la moindre sottise l’abêtit. Yourcenar
All happiness is a masterpiece: the slightest mistake makes it false, the slightest hesitation alters it, the slightest heaviness disfigures it, and the least foolishness stupefies it.
Until next week
