Yolande Pamtam


Yolande and her mother at their first visit to the ACTS Center

Yolande Pamtam was seven years old when her mother attended a meeting for widows at the ACTS Center.

It was very sad to see them coming slowly from the village. Yolande's mother had to carry her wherever she went as she was paralyzed.

But Yolande was getting older and heavier. She was getting much too difficult for her mother to carry. They needed a wheel chair to help Yolande get around. As a poor village widow, Yolande's mother had no idea how to find help.

Her mother asked if she could be enrolled in the ACTS income-generating activities to earn income for the family.

She also asked if Yolande could attend ACTS quick start educational program for orphans.

ACTS found a wheelchair for Yolande and she was entered in the ACTS school. With vitamin enriched meals she is getting stronger.

After that first meeting at the ACTS Center, Yolande’s mother was encouraged,

“I am glad that you are willing to look for solutions for my daughter. She talks and I think she is brilliant, but the biggest problem is that she cannot walk and this is a big burden for me. I am also thankful to you for all the counseling we received. We have gained courage because someone took time to talk and pray for us. This is something money cannot buy.”

Libya and other Muslim countries are promoting the wealth and power of Islam in Burkina Faso. Even mosques in rural areas entice poor women to the mosque to learn how to read the Koran.

Women are given $2 a day to come. If her children are starving, no mother will let an opportunity like this go by. Her children will remember that the mosque was their source during famine times.

This is another good reason for ACTS to bring food and other assistance with the truth of the Word of God.
