I am Peace SARAMBE and I have been working with BARKA Foundation since the beginning of the organization. I live in FADA N'Gourma in the eastern region of Burkina Faso.
Moving forward I will be the person reporting on our different projects here on GlobalGiving. In fact, after a new needs assessment about our 20 well water project, there has been a major change that I am excited to tell you about.
There are thousands of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) who settled in Fada because of the insecurity crisis going on in the country. The local water department authority suggested a change to the project, so as to better serve these populations.They intoduced us to a new water distribution system called an AEPS (simplified clean water connection). An AEPS includes a water tower which is filled by a solar pump and can serve up to ten thousand people. This will make it much more efficient to serve many more people.
We are currently developing this project and hope to begin implementation before the end the year with our rotary partners. We are excited about this change and we will keep you posted on our progress.
Project reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.
