Greetings all supporters of clean water in Burkina Faso!

We have some excellent news to share with you: BARKA Foundation has received a grant by Rotary International to drill a new well in the village of Lampiadi, only 12km from Tantiaka, and as a part of this grant, we will be able to continue our work in Tantiaka to strengthen the resilience of the community and continue to build the capacity of Tantiaka's water & sanitation committee. This grant also calls for reinforcing the hygiene education in Tantiaka we began with your support in 2012, and we will now include hygiene education in the local school which includes the all-important aspect of Menstrual Hygiene Management to ensure that girls stay in school and have the necessary support to address this often neglected and taboo issue. 

In fact, today, BARKA's consultants are in Tantiaka and Lampiadi working specifically to provide added training to the local water & sanitation committees in each village.  This will ensure that the committees understand the importance of collecting funds from each villager to build up savings for future repairs for the well.   This process also allows the local population to take full ownership of the project activities and to build their skills to manage them successfully.

This progress would not be possible without your much needed support.  We feel blessed to have you on our team, supporting this work and sharing in our successes.  We'll be in Burkina next month and will keep you posted on our progress.  Barka!
