Pittsfield, MA – Burkina Faso, a landlocked country in West Africa, is one of the poorest nations in the world. For the past five years, the BARKA Foundation, a Berkshire County-based NGO, has been working to bring students and residents in Massachusetts together with those in Burkina Faso with the hope of improving the lives of both.

WAMC'S Berkshire Bureau Chief Patrick Donges caught up with BARKA Foundation founders Esu and Ina Anahata to talk about some upcoming initiatives both in Burkina and the Berkshires.

More information on the work of the foundation and Burkina Day can be found online at BARKAfoundation.org.
