Community Profile

Upon completion of the project, our partner in the field reports…

When the Living Water Burkina Faso team arrived, 300 community members were dependent on an unprotected hand dug well located 3 kilometers away from the community, surface water, tube wells and a protected hand dug well located 2 kilometers away from the community to meet all of their water needs. Because of this and the community’s practice of open defecation, families were suffering from diarrhea and severe dehydration among other preventable water related illnesses. During the team’s stay, community members assembled a Water Committee, Self-help group and Community Health Club to assist the team with the water project and provide necessary on-going assistance in the community. Before leaving the community, the team provided the Water Committee with a Living Water Burkina Faso contact number in case their well were to fall into disrepair, become subject to vandalism or theft.

Using the Living Water Traditional Method, the following hygiene issues were addressed: Germs, Hand Washing-Proper Techniques and Water Saving Methods, Good-Bad Hygiene Behaviors, Proper Care of Pump and Keeping the Water Clean.

The Living Water Burkina Faso team had an opportunity to meet with thirty-six year old community member, farmer, and President of Community Development, Be Sou, who stated, “I want to thank you for the help you have sent here in this village to provide clean water. Really, we have suffered because of a lack of clean water for 2 years now. Today, we have received a great benefit. You came and lifted our suffering. The water that we searched for a long time is finally here, today we have found it! Thank you very much.”

Project Type

Well rehabilitation is one of the most cost effective ways to bring clean, safe water to a community.  Sometimes it involves fixing a broken hand pump, other times it means sealing a hand dug well to prevent it from being contaminated.  These repairs, and often time total replacements, coupled with sanitation and hygiene training make a huge impact in communities.


Today, we have received a great benefit. You came and lifted our suffering. The water that we searched for a long time is finally here, today we have found it! Thank you very much.
