In the middle of the African Bush lies the community of Birikani. Forgotten by the government, the people of this community have been constantly overlooked for development. Farming is the main income source, however with little rains and long dry seasons, many families have difficulty finding food. This village used to be called "The place of the mold", however, we call it a village of dreams. There has never been a school in this area and the children were desperate to learn. Our school is quickly becoming a light to the community, and the church welcomes everyone in with open arms. With your help, these wonderful kids are being given the bright future they deserve.
