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)
The different branches
Both M. Zbinden and M. Sternberg have visited the school with their family and spent special moments with the MLK family.
The president, M. Glauser Jean-Daniel is the Founder of the Lycée MLK and its Director since the opening in October 2010.
