Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Met & kept in touch with Solange Kabore, who worked in the Ouaga peace corps office from '70 to '76. In 2007, Solange asked for assistance to build a water reservoir in Sisene, her home village near Koudougou. Utilizing our two non-profit entities and the labor of everyone in Sisene, the reservoir was completed in 2008. The Sisene economy is in full bloom. Unfortunately, Solange died from cancer in August 2009. Her legacy continues, and one of her daughters, Estelle, is continuing her work to build additional water reservoirs in neighboring villages. Some details are @ www.zodonogo.com

Everyone. Especially to speak about Solange.
