Didier Kaboré from Saonré


Didier in January 2011 wearing his uniform for school.

When Didier Kabowas first brought to the ACTS Center in 2002, he was 2 years old.  

Didier, like many of the other orphans from the village, looked forward to the lunch bell.  He and other village orphans ate only a small portion of their lunch and put the rest in a plastic bag to take home and save for later. Village children know from past experience that they may have to stretch a meal for days.

Children can hardly believe they will receive a meal every day at the Center. Once they become familiar with the ACTS staff and gain confidence in them, they no longer save food for later.

Didier had no brother or sister as most of the children do. His father died about a year after he was born. And with no husband, his mother ran away and left the child with a grandmother.

After coming to the Center, Didier was given shoes to wear and because he was so young, staff members walked with him as he left for home each day.

It became apparent that Didier should live at the Center orphanage. His grandmother did not have the means or strength to care for such a small child. He has lived at the Hope Center Orphanage since he was about four and a half. He is now enrolled in Ecole Solidarity, ACTS grammar school.
