Headed Back to Burkina

We do too!
We do too!

Dear Friend of Burkina Faso,

We are returning to Burkina Faso at the end of this month!

For the past 3 months (when heavy rains grind things to a halt in Burkina), we've been engaged in fundraising activities in the US.

In fact, last month we met with the Town Manager of Great Barrington, MA and several movers and shakers including business leaders and members of the Board of Selectmen to discuss the sister-city relationship between Great Barrington, MA and Fada N'Gourma. Both cities now have new heads at their government and have begun communicating to determine what they can each do to help one another. We also discussed how to engage community members, businesses and schools in order to build inter-cultural bridges.  BARKA refers to such initiatives as part of its commitment to the principle of reciprocity.

For us here at BARKA, charity is obsolete. The new development paradigm is about reciprocity-- how we can help each other to create a more sustainable world and a culture of peace.

You are an integral part of BARKA's worldwide community and the embodiment of this idea of reciprocity. You have chosen to help people you've never even met, and have witnessed the results of your choice to become involved. Have you experienced any reciprocity in supporting this project? Tell us how your involvement in this cause has affected you.  We'd like to hear your story of reciprocity.

Barka is an African word of gratitude, blessing & reciprocity.

Barka,

Ina & Esu and the BARKA project team
