”We can change the world by inspiring others to join”

The object of our project was to solve the water shortage of an elementary school in the poor country of Burkina Faso in Western Africa. We planned the project from scratch, established partnerships and coordinated the actualization of the project on the spot.

The construction of the borehole was completed in April 2011. The water is used for cooking and cultivation. Thanks to agriculture, the school gets funds to extend its activities. Additionally, villagers can benefit from clean drinking water.

The most important partners of the project were Lyra Capital Ltd, HSE Foundation, Aalto University Corporate Relations and advisor Raoul Adjalla from Plan Burkina Faso. We dedicate our work to him.
