2020 was a good year for our agricultural project at Bethel School where students learn how to become farmers. 
Water comes from a solar powered pump attached to the on site well. The project costs £3,000 per year to run and each year 50 students graduate.
If you’d like to contribute towards this ( it only costs £60 per student for a one year training course ) then please get in touch with us. jonny@transformburkina.org.uk
