In order to support this project that started with personal funds, a foundation, la Voie de l'Espérance (the road of hope) was created in Burkina Faso with two sister foundations in Europe: one in Switzerland and the other in France.

It is through these foundations that funds are collected to:

  • sponsor the students from the villages (sponsorship),
  • support the infrastructural development of the school (donations).

Donations are transferred to the school and entirely invested in:

  • the construction of new building (dorms, dining hall, new classrooms...),
  • new equipment (school furniture, educative equipment)
