WHY REACH OUT TO BURKINA FASO?

• Burkina Faso is one of the poorest countries in the world. Over half of its population lives below the poverty line, surviving on less than $1.25 a day.
• In the Cascades and Hauts-Bassins regions, less than 56% of the population have access to water.
• There has been a significant drop in rainfall over the last few years in the region. Contamination of water sources, inadequate management of resources, a lack of infrastructure and industrial overexploitation also jeopardize access to water.
