BARKA Foundation

The BARKA Foundation's mission is to serve as a catalyst for achieving the SDGs in Burkina Faso, West Africa. Our methodology is community-led, grassroots and combines indigenous and modern technologies to develop a set of best practices in areas of clean water accessibility, sanitation, irrigation, sustainable agriculture, women's empowerment, education, healthcare, and renewable energy. BARKA's work is ultimately about co-creating a culture of peace.
Empower a Rural Community by Building a School
This project will build a permanent structure for a primary school in the village of Dandantiri, benefiting its 3 classes consisting of 78 students. Currently the school is constructed with millet stalks, common among poor villages. Its roof caves in every year. BARKA Foundation is currently building latrines at this school. The community is completely mobilized to build a more permanent structure for its children, and is contributing its labor and part of the finances for this project.
