Hats off to Ned Breslin
Hats off to Ned Breslin for speaking the truth about problems in financing and implementing water projects….
We wrote a letter to Mr. Breslin informing him of our water project, asking for his assistance at this early stage of our venture, seeking his guidance and helping us ensure that as we approach small villages in Burkina with water projects, that first and foremost, we do no harm. Clearly, the fact that we’re in a long-term relationship with La Petite Village is already separating us from NGOs which parachute in, drill a well, and then leave… little follow up, little maintenance training, that’s not the new paradigm. Still, we’re seeking long-term strategic partnerships, and Water for People would be a great one for BARKA.
