A water source Eveline can rely on whatever the weather

A portrait of Eveline, in the village of Sablogo, Burkina Faso, January 2018.

This is Eveline. She’s from Burkina Faso in west Africa, a landlocked country with a tropical climate that’s becoming ever more unpredictable because of climate change. The winters are getting drier and the summers are getting rainier, so there’s increasingly either too little or too much water available.

WaterAid West Africa worked with Eveline’s community to install a borehole, so they now have clean water pumping whatever the weather. Find out how this has improved everyday life for Eveline and her family.
