Despite the summer months and the rainy season in Burkina, the work on the pigsty has made tremendous progress in Bouassa!


A few more weeks and the pigsty will be ready to welcome its new “residents!” We hope to be able to make the trip to Bouassa for the inauguration …

However, the funds received to date will soon not be enough:

The first reason is that the sum of money which was used to pay for the purchase of the land, which is still done in cash in these villages, was stolen from Séraphin’s house. That was a real set back. The police continue their investigation but will we be able to recover this stolen sum? The other reason comes from the fact that the land we originally considered buying was a bit too close to the dwellings. So, we had to find another piece of land more on the outskirts of Bouassa, but much more expensive than what we planned!

We have to look for ways to make up for this loss in order to ensure that the project is completed. Do you want to help us?

But that’s not all. For some time now, we have been contemplating the need for a second water well in this new pigsty area in Bouassa. This area of Bouassa doesn’t currently have a well. In any case, the pigsty will in need water for its normal operations, but this is even more crucial for the inhabitants. This would mean we would put the water tower and latrines on stand-by, as would couldn’t do both at the same time! It’s never good to burn a candle on both ends…

For those of you that have been following us and reading for quite some time, what do you think? Would you be willing to work with us to find funds from friends, companies, various networks?

…and we continue to believe:


We believe people, not water, can change everything! When you sponsor
