We managed to get our agricultural starter kits to students in Burkina Faso just in time for them to sow seeds before the rainy season started, resulting in a great yield of crops for this year. 
We havent got any more funding for this project for future years, so please get in touch if you would like to help to fund this. Each kit costs £200 and pays for one more young person to be able to start their own farming business.

Weve funded our first dam!
In Burkina Faso, there is plenty of rain in the wet season, but the problem is having enough water for agriculture throughout the year. One simple solution is to build a dam to trap the water during the wet season, so it can then be used throughout the year.
The village of Mako now has a dam across the seasonal river Nakambe which will give them 10 Million Litres of water to last the year.
