Answer International Inc. (A.I.I.) is a non profit 501 (c) 3 organization in USA and a recognized ONG in Burkina Faso is founded on the belief that all of life’s experiences should culminate in identifying the purposes for which we are all created. The tragedy for many of us is that our purpose often goes unrealized. A.I.I. provides individual counseling and group training sessions to provide people with the process through which they can realize their personal and communal lifetime and legacy goals. “To enjoy a balanced life we must address the needs of the “whole” person, body, soul and spirit. In achieving this balance we become stronger human beings able to serve our families, our community and the world.”
Adrienne lived in Burkina Faso, West Africa for three years, where she was instrumental in the building of the Source of Life Medical Clinic and the Village of Hope boarding school for children in difficulty ages 6 to 16. To help finance the mission, she opened the “Restaurant Le Diplomate”, which also provides vocational training for some of the students who graduate.
