Honorary Rotarian Katy Cornell joined Midday Rotary on October 1 to provide an update on the District 5020 grant that will assist her organization, Walk In the Light, to establish a 10th grade classroom in Burkina Faso.
Joining Katy was Romeo Bamos from Burkina Faso who spoke about the challenges that
exist due to terrorist control of a large a territory in the Northern part of his country. The conditions are
very serious and there are now over 50,000 refugees in Burkina Faso. Many NGOs no longer support
services in the country. District 5020 will match $3,500 of Club funds to support the school.
