Happy Thanksgiving from Konkourona!

Life in the remote village of Konkourona, Burkina Faso, is hard, but it has improved dramatically over the past 4 years. We are extremely grateful to our closest friends, colleagues and family members for joining us in helping this community build a brighter future.

There are security risks in Burkina Faso that prevent most people from visiting, so I wanted to share photos of what life in the village is like and just some of the amazing transformations that have taken place.
