Mobilizing the Workforce

Saneba Village, Burkina Faso

Working together, the villagers of Saneba are moving forward with what they’ve learned from TCD training. The Wellness Committee is mindful that this is a high-risk period when mosquitoes are prevalent in the village. They have been taking all the necessary precautions to help prepare the village. The Nutrition Committee is in the process of being established.

In regard to income generation, the village is committed to building a workshop for the women to continue their income-generating activities. The women have continued to make soap following the training earlier in the year. The new workshop will be where the women will have a place to ply their trade, as well as train other women in the village in soap fabrication.

It has been a very busy few months where the villagers have been working the fields from dusk until dawn. The youth of the village are mobilizing to help make bricks from the locally-available materials. We would like to partner with them to help provide a solid roof and windows. Your help is much appreciated.
