Burkina Faso lies on the edge of the Sahel. In the dry season in spring, temperatures here are around 35 degrees. Due to climate change, the drought is also increasing here from year to year. Water is a precious commodity and limits not only food production but also the necessary reforestation of the land. Together with our partner Climate Sole, we are working on sustainable solutions for climate and soil. Dynamic agroforestry, in combination with an efficient pyrolysis digester for the environmentally friendly production of charcoal, is the basis for securing life in harmony with nature. First stage goal: Help with the water supply and the construction of a solar well. more

Burkina Faso boasts a rich wildlife: In addition to hippos, elephants, buffalos, lions and leopards, you can also find gazelles and antelopes, various species of monkeys such as the anubis baboon and the hussar monkey, reptiles such as crocodiles or geckos and also numerous bird species such as the spur-thighed cuckoo or the scarlet shrike.
Most of the landscape in Burkina Faso consists of briar and dry savannahs with few trees. Instead, the landscape is characterised by grasses and thorny plants.
