In 2012 our CEO and owner, Horst Walz, visited the village Gofila in Burkina Faso for the first time and witnesses first hand the terrible conditions he didn´t consider possible in today´s world. He decided to establish the organization “Hilfe für Burkina Faso e.V.”, for helping these people on-site. The goal of the organization is „help people so they can help themselves“. Burkina Faso is one of the ten poorest countries in the world.
The organization follows a clear concept and implements various projects, depending on the regional demands, in the following order: water supply, agriculture – market garden, school education, vocational education, energy supply, healthcare.
The first project site Gofila is located in the southern region of the Sahel and has at best three months of rain and nine months of severe drought. The village Gofila is situated about 20 km from the provincial town Kaya. About 5,000 people live there, 60% of the residents are under the age of 16.
In 2014, we completed our first project, the construction of six deep wells. This was followed by vegetable gardens, containers with relief and donations good, elementary school and a college run on a off-grid-solar system.
