In order to support this project that started with personal funds, an organization, la Voie de l’Espérance (the road of hope) was created in Burkina Faso with two sister organizations in Europe, one in Switzerland and the other in France.
It is through these organizations that funds are collected to:
- finance the sponsorships for students from the village
- support the infrastructural development of the school (donations).
Donations are made to the school and are entirely invested in:
- the construction of new buildings (dining hall, new classrooms…)
- the purchase of new equipment (school furniture, teaching equipment)

M. Zbinden as well as M. Sternberg travelled to Burkina Faso with their families,
