Faso Association supports development in the 52 villages of the commune Midebdo, in the south of Burkina Faso. Midebdo is a rural area. It's inhabitants live mostly from agriculture. The markets of the larger towns bustle with life as people sell their produce. Life in Midebdo is full of music, laughter and family. But life there isn't easy at all. Every year there is a risk of crop failure and water shortage. We also doubt that the available water is always safe for drinking. In addition, hospitals are far away and electricity is only presenst where there are solar pannels or generators.
But there is also much hope. There are many schools in the area, and they are gradually improving. Faso Association helps the people of Midebdo through these schools firstly. But children need more than schools. They also need to be fed, be healthy and have school supplies. Therefore, Faso Association increasingly does projects that focusses on the communities as a whole.
