Plainting Trees in Burkina Faso, Africa
Aly Ouedraogo has led efforts to restore farmland in Gourcy, about 40 kilometers south of Ouahigouya in Burkina Faso. Work included using low rows of stones called bunds, to control water flow and let water permeate into the soil. The picture show the landscape in March 1986 when work began, and illustrates how barren the land was at the time.
