School Awards 2012
Ahmed Soré, Koama Alidou and Louise Ilboudo

Ahmed Soré received the "Student of the Year" award for 2012. He has a remarkable story.

He came to the Hope Center when he was not qualified to attend ACTS primary school. Fortunately, he was still young and began by helping in the granary while attending the Speed School. This gave him intensive individual study to
bring him up to speed so he could be placed at Ecole la Solidarity.

In August of 2012, he not only was awarded the best student of our school but he is 3rd in rank among all the excellent students of all the school in the commune of Komsilga.

This is quite an accomplishment for a child with such a rough beginning.

Each child at Hope Center has a story.

Koama Alidou is another scholar who was acknowledged for his performance.

This boy’s father abandoned the family and went to Ghana. Since Koama’s mother could not care for the child on her own, she began to bring men into the house; some of them were abusive to Koama.  On his own initiative Koama came to the ACTS Center and asked if he could stay. After investigation into his home life, he was allowed him to stay at the Center. He is happy and works with all his might to succeed.

Two years ago at the beginning of the school year, Louise Ilboudo, a student from the village, gave her life to the Lord. She is faithfully attending Temple Evangélique el Roï.

Students have opportunities to come forward to receive salvation in the Lord Jesus

Her father became very sick at one point and received medical treatment from ACTS Ellel Medical Center, but could not work to feed the family. At this point, ACTS allowed Louise to stay at the Hope Center orphanage. This year she has succeeded to her final exams and will be going to secondary school next year.

The stories of Ahmed, Ilidou and Louise show how ACTS impacts the lives of the poor and vulnerable children in the village of Saonré.

We are grateful for your prayers and faithfulness. We continue to look to God to help us care for the orphans. We also ask that you continue to support the ministry of ACTS in Burkina Faso.
