In Burkina the real number of cases of COVID 19 is impossible to know when the number of tests per day does not exceed 500. The average positive cases from those tests is around 6%.

We are still waiting to be vaccinated to plan a trip to Burkina.

Focus on projects in the villages

A lot of activities in the villages for the team of APPA.

  • Distribution of books in primary schoolsWith funds from  Unesco Nederland and from a French institution we have been able to distribute 2.500 books in 14 primary schools.
  • Realisation of Latrines for primary school

New latrines at the school of Sipigui A.

  • Realisation of a building with  food storage and oven

The BEL Foundation has funded 7 buildings as in the picture. There is a storage place for goods used in the lunch program (rice, oil, beans) and an improved oven which will save 30% of the wood used for cooking. 7 primary schools will benefit of such a building.
