At the end of the year, like we mentioned in our previous article, the small Protestant community organized a big meal in Bouassa. More than 200 children gathered for a large meal, larger than what they were used to (when they actually do eat …). During the meal, each child received a small gift made up of a soap and skin cream, all made in Burkina. The jar of cream is very important during this season because of the wind of the desert, called the harmatan, dries and cracks the skin. The cream, made out of shea butter, helps protect the skin. There were far more children than expected and the budget was not enough for everyone to receive this hygiene kit, instead those children received a huge package of popcorn. This made them happy! The event was fun; he children were happy and the music was great!


The pastor of the parish and a friend from France, they organized the distribution of presents.


At the beginning of the year, when the hand pump was built, the committee of water users decided to devote a small part of the funds collected from the sale of water, to install a trash can on the site. This had a great impact on the neighborhood population and many came to ask what it was going to be used for. After explaining the purpose of the trash can, the people began getting used to throwing their trash in this beautiful can sporting the colors of Burkina Faso!

Because we firmly believe:


We believe people, not water, can change everything! When you sponsor
Well Drilling Project in Burkina Faso, Africa you’ll unlock the potential of an entire community! #Burkina
