My colleague just returned from Burkina Faso where he went to see how things were progressing on the pigsty project. So, I am able to give you all news … hot off the presses! The rainy season has come and gone and already the heat is rising considerably.

He enjoyed spending time with the pastor of the small parish in Bouassa, with the young people who built the pigsty, and even with the village chief with whom he could discuss our plans for his village.

As for the construction work, things have stopped. In fact, the project has been the victim of some serious problems in recent months. First of all, there was the issue of theft that I mentioned in the previous article, and then, in September, a huge tornado hit the neighborhood where the building was located. It tore off the entire sheet metal roof that had just been laid … The on-site team was very affected. It was necessary to remobilize everyone! And now, it is imperative that we find additional funding to finish the project and finally launch the pig production and training of several candidates. Most of those involved in the construction of the barn are unemployed and would like to be a part of the first group of pig farming students.


I asked you a question in August’s article, but have still heard back from you. Let me reiterate: would you be willing to help us find the funds needed to complete the project? Together, we would raise awareness for Bouassa via the website and mobilize potential donations. On our side, we are still knocking on doors to be sure to finish on time!

Thank you for your help, past, present and who knows, future!

Because we still believe:


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