Get Involved!

The Georgie Badiel Foundation has several ways you can take action to transform lives.
Every dollar amount raised goes to carry out the Georgie Badiel Foundation mission.
$10 000 will completely fund the drilling and installation of a new well. The Georgie Badiel Foundation will install a plaque in your honor or the person of your choice.
$3000 will construct 6 gender specific composting toilets in a school or a village. The lack of sanitation facilities is a major issue in Burkina Faso and beyond. Your generous contribution will help solve this problem.
$2000 will restore and maintain three broken wells in a school and nearby villages. The Georgie Badiel Foundation will train villagers to maintain their wells which empowers them and breaks the cycle of water deprivation.
$1000  will restore one well and help maintain it for two years.
$500 will restore one well bringing water to hundreds of villagers or school children.
$200 will maintain an existing  well for one year.
$100 will plant 60 trees to help us fight against desertification.
$50 will provide grain seeds to women for agriculture.
$10 will plant 6 nutritious  moringa trees close to a well so they can be watered and thrive.

Why Help?

Service-learning is an approach to teaching and learning in which students use academic knowledge and skills to address needs in the community.
Cathryn Berger-Kaye, an international service learning consultant:
“Well-designed and implemented service-learning works for kids, students, teachers, parents, and communities. It infuses relevance, skill development, and concept knowledge across multiple curricular areas. And service-learning develops intrinsic knowledge rather than relying on extrinsic rewards, prizes, or competition. What is exciting is how the service-learning experience can vary depending on student interests, subject matter, and community need – it’s continually fresh and purposeful.”
