One Motorcycle

Project Cost: $ 1,930.00


This Christian organization has been operating a residential school for rural deaf children in Benin since 2008, as well as conducting annual Bible camps for the deaf in Benin, Togo, and Niger.  Their goal is to reduce barriers to education for deaf children who do not live in a city or large town.  The students live in dorms and are taught sign language and vocational skills along with Christian education and worship.

The school needs a motorcycle to help transport children to and from their homes and to the hospital or clinic when needed.  It will also greatly help the kitchen staff when they go to market for food and supplies.
