Burkina Faso, What you didn't know.


Have you ever heard about Burkina Faso? I sure haven't, until I began this project for the Rescue Rangers. Here are some facts about this small country.

  • It is located in West Africa.
  • It is surrounded by six countries: Mali to the north; Niger to the east; Benin to the southeast; Togo and Ghana to the south; and Ivory Coast to the southwest.
  • Its capital is Ouagadougou
  • In 2010, its population was estimated at just under 15.75 million.
  • Until the 19th century, Burkina Faso was dominated by the empire Mossi.
  • It is 60.5% Muslim, 23.2% Christian, 19% Roman Catholic, 15.3% Animist, and 4.2% Protestant.

Burkina Faso, in case you don't know, is one of the countries that we are raising money for by purchasing livestock. It changes the lives of villages, and the families within them. Join us in our effort to make a difference in our last month for this project.

Soda caps

Now we are currently collecting as many as soda caps as we can. We are collecting those for the hospital. Why? When we give the soda caps to the hospital they change it into money for sick kids in the hospital. How can you help? You can snap off the soda cap every time you drink soda. At home collect as much as you can. Like if you have a party, you snap your friends caps off and tell them to do it to their parents'. Also tell your brother or sister to do the same to his friends. If all the rescue ranger members and you do this then we will be able to raise a lot of soda caps. Even tell your friends to collect some at home.When you got to the zf center bring your collected caps and give it to one of rescue ranger members. They will put it somewhere safe, where it will eventually go to the hospital. This is something that you personally can do by yourself. So don't just stand here go and start your collection of caps!

If all of us raise some caps we will raise this much!

Eid Party at the Zakat

The Rescue Rangers are trying to find creative ways to raise money, so we rented out the Zakat Foundation for an Eid party. There was food, music, and everyone had fun. The exceptional food was displayed on a white-clothed table, and the room seemed so much more lively when the people where there to brighten it.
       The driving force that spurred us to support this Eid Party was so we could donate the sales to families in India and Bangladesh. The money, as you might know, goes to purchasing livestock, and we raised $50 for the Rescue Rangers alone. In the future, if you would like to host a party you are more than welcome to rent the Zakat Foundation Community Center for only $100. Be a part of making a difference in the world.
