July is the one month in the year at AMPO when the project phases come to an end and we develop new strategies for the coming year. It is also the start of the summer holiday programme for the staff and the children.

These monthly stories clearly show how much AMPO can change the lives of individuals. We should take this as an opportunity to perceive the small (and big) successes and to be happy about them.

Every year on the 24th of December we celebrate Christmas at AMPO along with millions of others across the world. In the runup to the holidays the AMPO kids play an active part in the preparations for the festival. The girls and boys clean their huts and the educators take them to the market to buy new shoes and clothes they choose themselves.

Fatimata was full of hope when she and Ibrahim got to know each other one day. At the age of 23 she was rejected by her family and had been living on her own since then. This is not unusual among many women in Burkina Faso, and they all have one thing in common – they are HIV-positive. Despite her fears that Ibrahim would also reject her because of her condition, she decided to tell him. He was HIV-negative, she HIV-positive. Nevertheless they still wanted to have a family. Soon the couple were expecting their first child, but Fatimata as before was very afraid. Neither she nor Ibrahim had any earnings. How were  they to afford food, clothing and a roof over their heads?
