How BARKA is addressing Fada's Dire Water Issues

By Peace GAOUSSOU SARAMBE | EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Dear friends,

We are so excited to provide some updates about two exciting projects BARKA is implementing in Fada N’Gourma, East of Burkina Faso.

Fondation BARKA is in the process of purchasing a small plot of land to drill a new well for the community of Fada. Thanks to hydro-geologic testing by the well driller, we know it has water on it. The location of the land was determined based on high population densities of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) to best serve this growing population of IDPs due to Burkina's ongoing security crisis. Through a water tower and solar pump connected to the well, the system will serve more than 1000 people. In addition, through a partnership with local association ANSD, the plot of land will be cultivated using the principles of agroecology, such as forest gardening (inter-cropping fruit trees with garden vegetables) and other techniques to enrich soil, conserve water, combat erosion, and maximize crop yields. Thanks to irrigation from the water of the well, they will be able to grow and harvest year-round.

Fondation BARKA is also working with The International Rotary Foundation represented by the Crystal Club of Ouagadougou, on a water project for three villages in desperate need of clean water. This project is in a process of approval and will supply clean drinking water to more than 5000 people.

We humbly and sincerely thank you all for your continuous support and your generous donations that enable us to do this work. We are grateful, and thanks to your contributions we will keep on providing clean water for the people of Burkina Faso.

Please help us change people's lives through increased access of clean water.

DONATE NOW.
