Support a Child

Give a Field Trip Opportunity to a Child or an Entire Class

When you donate $45, you’re providing a child with a field trip to remember at the Retreat. He/she will spend the school day participating in a guided tour – visiting with, feeding and learning about the 120-plus animals that call the Retreat home. In addition, the child will have 45 minute art class with a take home canvas. Chaperones, teachers and students alike give us 5 stars when it comes to field trips!

Give $45 and you will provide a student with “the best field trip ever.”


Pre-K and Nursery Program in Burkina Faso

In Burkina Faso there are 67 different dialects, any of which the children will speak at home. Since French is the legal language taught in the school system, the children have an immediate setback. The preschool is essential to prepare them for first grade and continuing formal education.
The preschool program helps ensure a healthy start into a child life and is an investment into the development of their society’s future. Our Pre-K and nursery program supports 140 children providing early learning to prepare them for 1st grade.

Give $75 and you will support one child for a year of schooling.


Scholarships in Burkina Faso

The money supports half of the tuition, school supplies, library fees and lunch for the school year. In 2013, when visiting Burkina Faso, students shared their dreams to become nurses, teachers and engineers. Our role is to ensure they have the means to succeed and meet their goals.

Give $125 and you will support one student for an entire school year.
