Serve the City Ouagadougou!

Serve the City was recently launched in Burkina Faso with 10 volunteers leading some sports activities with street children in the capital city of Ouagadougou.  These activities allowed the volunteers to “cross the line” and get to know these children not only by their needs, but by their names, in the hopes of helping them feel loved and accepted. The Serve the City vision of crossing the line between social classes in order to transform lives was shared by our Serve the City International ambassadors Jerry and Donald during their visit to Burkina Faso in March, and is now being implemented as a starting point for further Serve the City efforts in the future, making Burkina Faso the first French speaking African country to join the movement.  Congratulations to the Serve the City Ouagadougou team!

Serve the City Brussels Featured in Fans of Flanders Video

Flemish public broadcaster Fans of Flanders made a short video featuring Serve the City Brussels, currently posted on their website.  In the video they accompanied some Serve the City Brussels volunteers as they visited some Afghan friends who are asylum seekers temporarily living in a Beguinage church in the Sainte-Catherine area of Brussels. A regular visitor to the Afghans explains how this example of “crossing the line” has impacted him.  Check out the video here.
