Income Generation Activities for a School of Young girls in Burkina Faso
The project was about finding water to support the income generation activities for a school of young girls in Dedougou, Burkina Faso. The construction of a well was necessary to irrigate the fields for their plantations, where they grow fruits and vegetables. Farming allows them to be more independent and generate income when selling their harvests in the neighbouring local markets.
