Pierre Gama from Burkina Faso had won the lottery, but his life as a multimillionaire was of short duration. Because when his family and friends heard of his winnings, they all wanted to benefit from it. Now he's broke again and he does not even have money to buy gasoline for his moped. vpro Metropolis was a video project by Dutch broadcast organisation vpro, that ran from 2008 to 2015. Metropolis is made by a global collective of young filmmakers and TV producers, reporting on remarkable stories from their own country/city. We made a trip around the globe on one single issue: from local beauty ideals to Elvis impersonators, to what's it like being gay, or an outcast or a dog in different cultures.

The village of Dablo is quite typical of the lively, busy, creative rural farming village of much of West Africa. People spin and weave cotton, brew millet beer, form and fire pottery, smelt and forge iron, dance and sing, and enjoy life. Airfare from Iowa costs about $2500 through Paris, but I am sure you can do better than that, especially if you purchase your ticket to Ouagadougou in Paris instead of in the United States (so many people fly back and forth between Paris and Ouagadougou that the airfare is not very expensive). If you stay in a tiny rural village and ask a family to give you a room to sleep in and to feed you you could get by on $25-$50 a week. If you stay in a hotel in Ouagadougou it will cost you $150 a day just for the hotel. Meals in Ouagadougou can be cheap or e...
What is supposed to be a nice tour through the various museums in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso turns into a bit of a dud. The national museum is closed and the music museum is down for renovations. However, Ouagadougou is a nice place to just wander around even if it means not visiting any museums or doing normal touristy things. One of the things I take in on this day is the beautiful Grande Mosque in Ouagadougou which is absolutely brilliant. Next to the mosque, there are plenty of shops, vendors and heaps of activity. In general, Ouagadougou is about as comfortable as any capital city in west Africa.

The Village of Hope in Burkina Faso, West Africa is home for 10 months of the year to nearly 500 children who come from rural villages. While most of the children have some family in their home villages, they are extremely isolated and are not given the opportunity to receive education, health care, and the like. After developing relationships with the village chiefs (often through drilling wells or providing for other needs) the chief allows Pastor Michel Ouedraogo, Director at the Village of Hope, to care for some of the village's children for the bulk of the year. This video was put together by Rasmata, our sponsorship coordinator at the Village.

27 years on and Thomas Sankara's legacy still lives on. Sankara was a profound leader with deep love for his country, Burkina Faso. But he would not live long enough to see his vision change his country for better. He was assassinated. "Faces of Africa" takes you through Sankara's journey and how his ideas have stuck in the minds of the young generation, now seeking to resuscitate the country's economic and political status.

What do I wish Americans knew about Burkina Faso? Literally anything! This small country is widely unknown but has strong values Americans can learn from. Take just two minutes of your time to get a brief glimpse into the life of the Burkinabé. You'll be glad you did. *NOTE* Ahem. I may not know the definition of organic haha. Feel free to hear "locally grown" in place of organic where applicable. This video was submitted for consideration in the Peace Corps Week 2014 (#PCWeek2014) Video Challenge, "Cultural Windows: What I wish Americans knew about my Peace Corps country."

Originating in Burkina Faso, the Lobis and the Bilfo have settled in the north-east of the country. Until recently, they were hunters, but are now sedentary. They form villages with no definite structure, rather anarchic, scattered around the interior of the wooded savannah. Their houses, called sukalas, are very unusual buildings, totally different from those of the other ethnic groups of the Ivory Coast. They are built with adobe. Thick wooden pillars hold up the upper floor, which is a flat rooftop. They are of different sizes, depending on the number of members in the family. The rooftop is used to dry the millet and maize. The Lobi are one of the least developed ethnic groups in West Africa. Many women still today wear the traditional decoration, two white stones inserted into th...

Soumaïla KANLA, 36 years, is a carpenter-designer. He transforms dead wood into softwood lumber and other objects such as plates, spoons, forks etc. Soumaïla has lived in France for seven years and it is there that he developed his passion to transform wood into different objects. His dream was to go back and settle in Burkina Faso one day. With this in mind, he took the decision to move there with his family, where he created his enterprise with his wife. “For those who buy an object from us, the advantage is to know that it’s from wood that was dead. We have not cut down the tree to get the wood to make your furniture. Therefore, it’s a responsible purchase that protects the environment,” explains Soumaïla.
