Greetings Project donors, supporters and stakeholders,
We feel blessed to have so much support around us. In recent months BARKA Foundation has attracted several pro bono advisors in the field of sustainable development who are helping us in the areas of strategic planning, fundraising and project development. The results can be found in the attached document: WASH + Irrigation + Reforestation. The document designer, Jennifer Cain, also donated her services and did a stellar job. The Project Summary extends the project posted here on Global Giving to include irrigation and reforestation, two components which will enable villagers to generate income. Without this type of financial mechanism within a village, breaking the poverty cycle is not possible. BARKA Foundation will be using this document to apply for grants and major gifts for both project and organizational funds. Please check it out to get the full picture of our work, methodology and vision for a village micro-model to create sustainable empowerment and autonomy.
A brief recap of other activities includes the following:
Thank you all so much for your continued support on all levels. At this point we've secured funds for a trip to Burkina in December during which BARKA will conduct final research, planning and confirm in-country partnerships before project implementation. As always, we'll keep you posted. Barka!
