Water Pump

In 2009, Friends of Burkina Faso
provided financial support enabling  the community of Koukouldi (population 4,000) to acquire a water pump at the local primary school.  The pump provides potable water for the students as well as for local residents living adjacent to the school. 

This coming school year, it will enable the students to plant and irrigate a garden.  The vegetables from this garden will provide a source of nutrition for the students.  Moreover, proceeds from market sales of the produce will be used to purchase other foods for meals at the school.
