We have produced a calendar for 2015 which illustrates many of the topics which can be found on the web site.

Children have always inspired our link and helped to develop it in their own ways. The wonderful drawing on the front is by a youngster from Téréli and photos from both primary schools in Burley on the inside cover show their involvement.

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 the Joliba Trust informed us that ‘women are now having to spend as much as 20 hours a day collecting water.‘ BTFT was able to send money to reinstate the well in three villages – the photo for March shows one of these wells.

Photographs in the calendar reflect life in both villages. As Le Tour de France was an important event in Burley it is shown in June and July.
The inside cover of the calendar has information and photos about the link including men at work in Burley and Téréli showing their skills at stone dressing and wall building. In Téréli the stone housing is essential to attract qualified teachers. In Burley an enthusiast uses the skills as part of an environmental project.

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.
