20 Wells for 20,000 people in 2020

By Ina & Esu and the BARKA project team | Co-Founders

Dear Supporters of BARKA Foundation,

Since we were last in touch, BARKA's staff on the ground has been working diligently to help our 9 rural village partners  to combat the novel coronavirus. We've done this in a series of innovative methods including:

  • Massive handwashing sensitization
  • Distribution of locally-made soap (most often villagers do not use soap to wash hands because they can't afford it)
  • Distribution of locally-produced masks made from traditional cloth ("Faso dan Fani") made of cotton grown in Burkina Faso

You can read BARKA's press release about these actions and local news coverage in the links below.

Although BARKA was compelled to address the immediate concerns of COVID-19, we want you to know that we are currently developing and fundraising for the largest well-drilling project in our organization's history. This project is partnered with rotary clubs and The Rotary Foundation and will drill 20 wells in the areas of greatest need within the eastern region. With your help, BARKA will increase access to clean drinking water to more than 20,000 people.

GlobalGiving is offering a wonderful way to help support this new project today through Friday in its LittlexLittle campaign. Right now, and until midnight on Friday, 9/18, GlobalGiving will make a 50% match for ALL donations up to $50. You give $50, and GlovalGiving will put in $25.

Every drop of water is precious, and every donation helps us to reach our ambitious goals.

Thank you for being part of the BARKA family that is having such an outsized impact in Burkina Faso. Together, we are changing the world.
