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...

In addition to providing life-giving water, our well drilling project also gives us a meaningful way to demonstrate the love of God.
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.
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.

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.

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.

Cómo realizar un video donde se cuenten 3 meses de vida? simplemente, segundo a segundo. Después de pasar tres meses en la hermosa Burkina faso, me fue imposible realizar un video donde presentara a los "pobres africanos" que todo el mundo esta acostumbrado a ver. No pretendo hacer otro video donde se muestre como los extranjeros van a Africa para salvar el día trayendo gozo, alegría y demás. Quise hacer un video para simplemente agradecerle a Burkina para agradecerle por todo lo que hizo por mi, y por cada uno de nosotros. Para exaltar la fuerza y alegria de su gente, para simplemente decir gracias porque he recibido mucho mas de lo que fui capaz de dar. Para mostrar que Burkina NO ES POBRE, mas bien es MUY RICA: rica en cultura, alegria, sonrisas, libertad y demas otras cosas buenas q...
