We have produced a calendar for 2014 which illustrates many of the topics which can be found on the web site.

In 2012 there were torrential rains causing much damage to crops and dwellings. The rains also caused unprecedented floods in the Dogon area in late 2012. This meant that many villages lost their traditional, earth-dug wells as they filled with soil. In some of these villages Joliba informed us that ‘women are now having to spend as much as 20 hours a day collecting water. They are really desperate and asking for our help in 11 villages.’ BTFT was able to send money to reinstate the well in one of these villages.

Photographs in the calendar reflect life in both villages. Water features in several – in some it is for survival in others it is for pleasure. Bee keeping is important in the Dogon and in Wharfedale.

Proceeds from this calendar will be used to help the people of Téréli and the surrounding villages with projects to improve health, education and the environment.
