We are drilling another borehole! Despite the political turmoil following the coup d’état by the Burkina Faso army, we are continuing work on our agricultural project. The upheaval in the country was expected by everyone here. The next day everyone set off about their business as usual. The drilling company also arrived in our garden on time.

All the commotion about finding another water source is thanks to the wonderful people who trusted us and decided to make another dream come true for the people of Gourcy just before the upcoming dry season.

The onion harvest is also currently underway in the garden. Not only is there a fast-track order for 100kg of organic vegetables to be delivered to the capital, but a new spot for a borehole has been found right in the middle of the onion field. We have started drilling! Keep your fingers crossed!

There is an influx of internally displaced people in the Gourcy area. They are fleeing from terrorists, drought and hunger. We want our garden to provide work for and feed not only the poorest inhabitants of Gourcy, but also those who seek refuge in its surrounding areas.

This is not an investment in some piece of land. It is an investment in jobs, for people who have lost their prospects. It is an investment in an improved, well-balanced diet for residents and refugees who have been left with nothing. Our garden really does provide jobs and saves people from having to abandon these arid regions. If you want to join us in doing this work, visit GoodWorks 24/7 and help expand our garden!
