We are delighted that now if you wanted the opportunity to make a difference to someone life you can. The recent partnership with compassion has enabled children from the village to get sponsored. If you want interested in sponsor a child at Jam Tann, please contact Compassion International quoting the code BF 670 FULANI MINISTRIES. We have 200 children who are registered all need sponsors! We have observed in other cases in Burkina that Compassion sponsorship makes a big difference to the lives of children and their communities, in their spiritual growth, their performance at school and their personal confidence. In addition, it seems that most children who attend a Compassion centre receive Christ as a result of the teaching they receive there

The shop in the village is vital as it’s about 20km to the nearest shop. At the shop they sell a wide range of goods ranging from food, bike tires, phone credit, oil and washing products. This is also used in part of church planting and shows other potential church planters how you can serve your community. In the time of trouble in 2014 the shop was a place where people could buy and not risk going into city. The local shop is vital part of village life and many people gather and chat, it gives the village a real sense of community.

School in the Jam Tann Centre (2015) the school has 70 places that are all taken. We would like to expand the school and offer more people in the village an education. This is a new project as the demand was there and we are trying our hardest to meet it. the school has one paid teacher who teaches 70 children.
The primary school at Jam Tan has recently finished for the school year. All the students passed to the next level! We have appreciated the work of the teacher, who comes from the village. He has not been trained as a teacher, so we are planning to sponsor his teacher training this coming academic year.
We thank God for the provision of lunch for the schoolchildren and funds for the teacher’s salary through a gift from Tonbridge Baptist Church. Please pray for God to provide for a school building. We have been teaching in the large multi-purpose hall for two years now, but next school, year we will need three or more purpose built classrooms.
