It was a short week with free days on the 31st of October and 1st of November in Burkina Faso.
Climate in Burkina
This year, as I mentioned in previous blogs, rains continue to fall in October. We also saw a decrease in the amount of rain at the beginning of the rainy season in June.
Is it climate change? Is this a trend? You can see a very big variation from year to year.
This does not help farmers who have only one rainy season and have to adapt the work of the fields to the rain. Unfortunately, meteorologists do not predict the climate with enough anticipation to plan a good harvest.
Some renovations to the nursery school of Oualana
The nursery school in Oualana was opened in 2008. At the school and at the house of the teacher of the school, bats had found shelter between the roof and the ceiling. The results were: bad smell and rotten ceiling wood.
We were able to find funds to fix the problem. We also took the opportunity to repaint the classroom.
Proverbs of the week
Knowledge is like a garden, if it is not cultivated, it cannot be harvested.
Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped.
We arrive at the end of this trip, we will be back in the Netherlands next Saturday.
Take care of yourself,
