The welcome we received when we visited Toukon in January 2018. The ceremony was a joint one to celebrate the well which was drilled in October 2017 and the “opening” of the school.

Children just enjoying singing choruses. They didn’t know we were coming. When we stopped the minibus and got out, we just heard the singing. There were no adults in the church! How lovely to see them so happy with none of the amusements that children have in the UK.

Providing water is as important for people. But it is also important for the livestock. We were just about to leave Debere and go to another village when a line of cattle appeared.

Some of the boys immediately starting pumping to give them water in the trough. Clean water in Burkina Faso for the livestock. Well number 99 on our full list.
