Bassirou is a kind and active boy coming from the Serer ethnic group. He lives with his parents and siblings in one of the farming villages located the countryside about a hundred kilometers away from the Senegalese capital, Dakar. His father is, like most of the people living in this part of the country, a traditional farmer. The annual income of US $ 300.00 is hardly enough to take care of the family needs. They light candles and battery lamps at night and fetch water from a public well. Bassirou is enrolled in a kindergarten. He spends most of his free time playing with his little friends. Support from a caring sponsor will be of great help to this little boy and his family.
It’s a great way to create a bond between someone who’s
special to you and a child who will welcome his or her friendship and support.
