Conclusion of Community Garden Well – Burkina Faso

Women - Well Project - Burkina FasoThis project has been completed on schedule and within budget under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Brittany Bermudez. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.

Brittany worked with DAKOUPA, an agricultural-based women’s group of Yorko to carry out the construction of the garden well.

Brittany has applied for and received funding for the larger effort, the building and development of the garden. We are pleased to have been able to get the project underway. With the well completed, it can now move ahead to the creation of a fully-functioning community garden.

We again wish to thank David Keyzer for funding this project.

The outstanding pictures sent by Brittany show the construction process and the community involvement. They amply reflect the appreciation of the women.
