Donated Acklams Bus en route to Burkina Faso in West Africa

16/08/2019

Jacob’s Well is, for the first time, sending a coach overseas, in a change from its normal business of sending aid for hospitals, schools or disaster victims.   The coach, generously donated by Acklams coaches in Beverley, is en route to Burkina Faso in West Africa where it will be used to bring children from some of the poorest villages in the continent into “The Village of Hope” project on the edge of Ouagadougou, the capital city, where they will receive daily food, medical care and also a quality education.  The children will learn subjects like math’s, science and French (the national business language), and for those who are not academic, will be able to learn practical skills such as hairdressing, tailoring, modern agricultural farming or mechanics.
