A Forgotten Country (adults/families) - Enon

Moving to a place far from her home near Enon, Ohio, Annette Conrad Millogo is coming back to speak about some of what she has discovered in Burkina Faso, a small, forgotten, West African country.  She will share pictures and stories of her life there; the discouraging reality of underdevelopment and the encouraging potentials.  She will also give some insight on the enormous knowledge gap that imprisons people who have never visited a developing country and some ideas of how to shake free of that prison.
