Help for Burkina Faso e.V. – a non-profit association, which supports social projects in the region of Kaya
developed and implemented in Burkina Faso.
Aid for Burkina Faso
Construction of deep wells, each of which is between 60 – 100 m deep. This provides enough water for drinking, cooking and watering the animals.
By planting vegetable gardens, a varied diet is ensured. Cultivated are: Onions, tomatoes, beans, corn and much more.
In 2012, the managing partner, Horst Walz, was in Burkina Faso and found a situation that he no longer thought possible. After his return, he decided to help the local people and founded the association “Hilfe für Burkina Faso e. V.”. The association, whose motto is “help for self-help”, implements projects in the Kaya region in the following order: water supply, agriculture, school education, vocational training, energy supply and health care.
In 2013, the first project, the construction of six deep wells in Gofila, was realized. This was followed by vegetable gardens, containers of supplies, a six-grade elementary school, and a college (secondary school) with an off-grid solar array. Through the generated electricity is possible evening school for adults.
