Antine

Vores 'sponsorbarn' i Burkino Faso


Vi har blandt andre valgt at støtte Antine, via BØRNEfonden. At det blev Antine, kan synes som en tilfældighed - det var det barn der dukkede op på skærmen netop den dag. Hvad koster det så at give dette barn en bedre opvækst, tænker du måske... pt kun 185 kr om måneden. I Burkino Faso rækker 100 kroner langt, sammenlignet med hvad de gør i vesten.
Herunder er den beskrivelse som vi modtog, på engelsk, fra BØRNEfonden, sammen med et foto af Antine.

Antine Niongdogo
is a little girl. She is born 1992 and comes from a needy family living in the south-eastern part of Burkina Faso in the Koulpelogo province at about 230 kms from Ouagadougou the main town. Antine and her family members are muslims.
Antine is clever. She is healthy and likes to play tap dancing. She attends the grade 2 of primary school and her favourite subject are singing and arithmetic. When she does not go to school she does small shopping for her mother. Antine's sister, Salamata is married while the  2 others, Koutougri and Pedo 14 and 6 do not go to school and help their mother in her daily tasks. The youngest of the family is a baby boy who was  born in

2001. Antine has also half-brothers and sisters because her father is a polygamous man.

Antine's father is Hamidou and her mother is Lizeta. They are repectively 41 and 38 years old. Both of them are illiterate farmes. They own a small piece of land where they grow rice, beans and millet essentially for home consumption. They also cultivate cotton on a small scale that they sell to earn money. Despite their courage and perseverance they cannot harvest enough to properly feed the family during the whole year and satisfy their basic needs owing to the poverty of the land, the irregularity of rains and the lack of good farming tools and technic. So they find it hard to ensure good health care, sufficient food, education and clothing to their children. Their main food is "tow", a stiff millet flour porridge served with fresh or dry vegetagle sauce. They live in a round mud hut covered with straw mats. They have 3 goats.
