An update from Burkina Faso

We would like to share a quick update from Burkina Faso.

NEEED is very proud of our cafeteria and wishes to thank GlobalGiving and Friends of Burkina Faso for all of their support which has made it possible to serve a noon meal to the students of this middle school.

During the school day, three women prepare the noon meal for 400 students, using bottled gas in order to not consume wood. The large cooking pots are then placed near the dining area so students can be served.

We have a well that provides us with drinking water for the students and currently everyone is on vacation.

Thanks for your support.
