    Pierre Gama from Burkina Faso had won the lottery, but his life as a multimillionaire was of short duration.

  • IRON VILLAGE: The Mossi Village of Dablo in Burkina Faso

    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.

    Daily life in rural villages in West Africa, specifically in Mossi villages in Burkina Faso. I have included scenes of farming, harvesting, planting, cooking a meal, brewing beer, carving a mask, children playing with dolls and making their own masks, smelting and forging iron, spinning, weaving, a marriage, services in a Christian church and in a Muslim mosque, divination, sacrifices, a fashion show, musical entertainment in the big city, and more.

  • Life In A Rural Village - Burkina Faso, 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.

  • Exposing The Inhumane Conditions Of Burkina Faso's Gold Mines

    Gold Dust: Under Blaise Compaore's leadership, Burkina Faso's unregulated gold rush has had a devastating effect on mining conditions. This report digs deep into the industry, exposing the corruption beneath Compaore's ruling. Millions of people - including children as young as fourteen - mine in an unregulated industry for a few golden grams of hope. Marcel toils underground to support his family - but without the glittering rewards promised. “We all have hope, we hope to earn” he says, but "they rob us here...They treat the miner like an animal." 17-year old Soumaele has been mining for two years. His thin body can go to even deeper than the older men, to places where the air is impossible to breathe and the tunnels are likely to collapse. Gold promises a great deal, but in an anarchi...

  • Burkina Faso - Ivory Coast

    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...

  • Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso

    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 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 expensive depending on whether you eat them in a local restaurant used by Burkinabes, or in a European-style restaurant mostly used by white people. All of this should be pretty obvious. If you live like a Burkinabe life is inexpensive, if you live like a European it is much more expensive. I arrive at the airport in the evening from Paris, check into a hotel (the Splendid Hotel, recently bombed by Al Quaeda) and stay for a day or two until I am ready to go out to one of my villages. While I am in Ouagadougou I spend a lot of money, but as soon as I get to a rural village the cost of living drops dramatically. Some villages have electricity now, so that you can actually use a fan and have electric light. Most of the villages I visit do not have electricity, and so the only way to stay cool at night when you're trying to sleep is to soak your sheets in water and lie in bed until all the water has evaporated and the sheets are dry. I have a lot of friends who drive me around in their own cars, including into rural villages. I pay them quite a lot of money, 10,000 to 20,000 CFA a day. You can do much cheaper if you take local buses and other local transportation. On the other hand if you're going to do that I hope you speak French.

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 their lips. On the ground floor of the sukalas, they keep their cattle and household utensils. The rooms are large, including the kitchen, which has a small courtyard through which the smoke from the fire escapes. It is normal for three generations to live in each sukala. A narrow opening in one of the walls of the kitchen leads into the family sanctuary. Here, they keep the fetishes of their ancestors. Our film crew was shooting in this Bilfo village when something unexpected and tragic occurred. The people ran to a nearby sukala. The women let out heartrending screams, and within moments weeping could be heard right through the village. We soon found out what was happening; a ten-year-old child had just died from malaria. The pain of these people broke our hearts. The women raised their hands to the sky and, between sobs, muttered prayers. Then, they shouted out the name of god with the same familiarity they would speak to someone close by, someone who was with them in their profound pain. And then, as always in Africa, the music sounded out, the tom-tom could be heard. Everyone got up – undoubtedly, they had been expecting it. We felt moved and tense. These people, so far removed from our world, had just drawn us into their lives, made us one of them, and we shared their suffering. The sound of the drums brought us out of our daze. And we began to see the real Africa, with its greatness and misery, the human Africa that speaks through the sonar of the tom-tom and is capable of dancing even as they cry. For these people, death has a different meaning than for us. The deceased becomes part of a parallel, and intimately close world. But they have to realise that they have died, they have to leave, no longer bother the living. And hence the cries and the music. For many Africans, illness has a religious dimension. When they fall ill, they believe something evil has invaded them and caused their particular ailment. Whatever it may be, the origin must lie in a spell, and so they turn to the healers, the traditional medicine. The Unyi fetish women are the most famous healers in the Ivory Coast. By invoking their spirit friends, they are capable of driving out the illness from those who have been victim of some spell. The truth is they do give spiritual tranquillity to a patient who, for example, has malaria, and believes that the mosquito that brought the disease was sent by someone wanting to harm him. The sad thing is, if the patient is not given quinine, they will die, even if the devil himself has been forced to flee. That is Africa, and that is how it will continue to be, with its wisdom and its foolishness, but also with its mysterious magic which will continue to fascinate us.

Burkina was home to the ill-fated revolutionary Thomas Sankara, who as president alienated the French by calling them neo-colonialists, told the country’s creditors he wouldn’t pay them, slated African leaders for their corruption, and practiced what he preached. Blaise Compaoré led a coup against Sankara in 1987, and he has been in power ever since. Compaoré was a trusted ally of Sankara’s. Sankara was assassinated during Compaoré’s coup. 2. Capital of Burkina Faso is Ouagadougou. Written as “Wogodogo” in the Mòoré dialect, it literally means “You are welcome here at home with us”. Known in colonial times as Upper Volta, Burkina Faso means ‘Land of the Honourable People.’ 3. The country has arguably the world’s best place names. Its capital is Ouagadougou. Leafy Bobo-Dioulasso is the second city. It also boasts the desert market town of Gorom-Gorom, Bouroum-Bouroum, Fada N’Gourma, Tin-Akof, Niangoloko and, er, Rambo. 4. The ‘W’ park spans across three countries (Benin, Burkina Faso and Niger). Its unusual name stems from the double bend in the Niger river on its northeastern side (like an upturned ‘W’). Now the park’s savannah woodland is home to over 30 species of mammal and 350 species of bird. 5. Burkina Faso is home to 60 different ethnic groups, each with their own variety of folk music. The Bobo, one of the ethnic groups in Burkina Faso make large butterfly masks which are used to invoke the deity Do in fertility ceremonies. The Mossi are known for their antelope masks. The Lobi carve wood. 6. Like all of the west of Africa, Burkina Faso was populated early, notably by hunter-gatherers in the northwestern part of the country, and whose tools were discovered in 1973. Settlements appeared between 3600 and 2600 BC with farmers, the traces of whose structures leave the impression of relatively permanent buildings. 7. Captain Paul Voulet, who led the French expedition, was a real-life Kurtz figure, who stuck victims’ heads on poles, roasted children over fires, and strung up soldiers who displeased him at a height where their feet could be reached by hyenas’ hungry jaws. When his superiors tried to reign him in, he told his troops he was no longer French but a “black chief,” who would found his own empire. After he was killed, the French, embarrassed that their civilising mission in their colonies had gone awry, attributed Voulet’s activities to the maddening heat of Africa.

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.
