International House, Davis, will be the location for a fundraiser for a new nonprofit called Teebo, a 501(c)(3) that provides humanitarian aid to the West African country of Burkina Faso. Teebo means “hope” in that nation.

Food by Baobab Restaurant of San Francisco, music and a silent auction are planned from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 14, at 10 College Park. Carl and Robin Treseder of Davis will be the hosts.

“The Teebo connection to Davis comes through our son, William Treseder, who lives in San Francisco,” said Carl Treseder. “William met Pingdewinde N. Sam in a men’s group, and was later asked to become a member of the Teebo board of directors. We met PSam last spring at a dinner William held for a few friends in S.F. That’s what generated our interest in Teebo.”

The Pingdewinde family are working to alleviate suffering in their home country. PSam’s uncle, Beniwende, has created another nonprofit headquartered in Davis called Koom. This agency focuses on water issues; Davis board members include Ramin Yazdani, Kevin Whiteford and Lou Ziskind. Koen Van Rompay of Sahaya International is a consultant.

“Our goal in mind is to raise funds for Teebo’s agricultural program,” PSam said. “With the help of agricultural experts from a local university, we are launching a pilot program to End Starving Season by empowering farmers with simple plows, bags of fertilizers and oxen for a better harvest.”

Burkina Faso is a landlocked country in West Africa with 17.3 million people, the vast majority involved in agriculture. Drought and poor soil make life difficult.

Tickets are $40, which includes dinner. Advance purchase is recommended; checks payable to Teebo Inc. may be mailed to Carl and Robin Treseder, 800 Falcon Ave., Davis, CA 95616. For more information, visit www.teebo.org, email info@teebo.org or call 415-713-5567.
