Launch Event for HSB's New 'Sponsor A Child' Scheme

On Thursday 12th September, the launch ceremony for ‘Sponsor A Child’ took place at Handicap Solidaire Burkina (HSB). It was a ceremony that was as entertaining for the children of HSB’s Espace Bambino as it was for members of HSB.


At 8am, we started the preparations. With our team leader, we got to work, making sure that everything was ready for our guests. 



From 10am, the guests began to arrive and we did our part to welcome them. 



HSB’s Programmes Coordinator, Alfred (“Freddy”) Ouédraogo, gave an introductory speech and marked the beginning of the ceremony. 


After his speech came Nathalie Ilboudo’s (Manager of HSB’s Drop-in Centre and the Espace Bambino) presentation, which talked briefly about some of the children who were part of the sponsorship programme.



A performance from 2 artists, one of whom was a member of HSB, closed the ceremony.
