Preparing Our Return to Burkina to Implement the Project

Greetings and blessings for a happy, fulfilling new year.  The BARKA Foundation is on the move and one to watch in 2012.

Right now we're readying a return to Tantiaka to implement the water, sanitation & hygiene project and getting all the final details in place.  We actually expected to be in Burkina right now, however shortly before Christmas Ina broke her ankle.  She is recovering beautifully and as soon as she's able to walk, we'll be on a plane to Burkina Faso. 

So much is involved in preparing a trip like this.  It's safe to say we will return forever changed after living with the people of Tantiaka for 3-4 months and fulfilling our promise to them to address the community's water needs.  We're currently updating our vaccinations, purchasing necessary items such as hand pump water filters and working out travel arrangements.  Since BARKA is still searching for operational funds, it would be most appreciated if you would consider making a donation at this time to help cover some of these trip-related expenses which otherwise must be covered out-of-pocket.  Given the fact that we have not collected any salary for the past 5 years, your contributions are vital in ensuring the success of the project.   

We are thrilled about the huge step we're about to take and so grateful to have you on this journey with us.  We'll be in touch soon.

"Barka" is a West African word of gratitude, blessing & reciprocity.

Barka,

Ina & Esu
