I am a Burkinabe citizen living in New York.On one I would like you to help me connect with high schools interested in twinning with high schools located in Burkina ( College Sainte Therese de Banfora, Lycee provincial de Fada N`Gourma, Lycee departemental de Sapone...). Or at least, English teachers who will be eager to link with English teachers from Burkina.On the other hand, could you give some information about cities twinning in the US. Indeed the cities, I just mentionned above, would want, on the behalf of their democratically-elected mayors, to be twinned with small US cities. Thanks you in advance for your help.

My daughter is with the Peace Corps serving in Burkina. My place of employment is replacing all computers, approx. 3000, and the old ones will be donated. The used computers are very nice machines with lots of RAM and HD space, but are 3-4 years old.

Would there be an interest in donating these to Burkina? If so, do any Friends of Burkina members know of a NGO that might help with freight costs?

Thank you,

Craig Schantz
