Review for Barka Foundation Inc, Pittsfield, MA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

In broad terms I became interested in the work of BARKA as BARKA truly is focused on Indigenous technologies and a holistic approach to development. What has truly inspired me is the true commitment and energy the coufounders dedicae to the population of Tantiaka and to working hand in hand with that population to achieve water and sanitation goals; but also to share the experiences in Burkina with American children and likewise to bring the experiences of American children to children in Burkina Faso.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would build the organization in both Burkina and the US.

Role:  Board Member & I met In and Esu through development colleagues at MIT and am helping with fundraising.
