  1. Very true. I have visited Burkina Faso several times and I am amazed at the results of a hardworking people, especially in the countryside. In spite of the not-so-favorable climatic conditions, Burkina is just one of a few African countries in the Sahel Region where there is food self-sufficiency, to say the least, and where citizens enjoy considerable prosperity. I spent my past 30 years with the African Development Bank and know the country through the supervision of education projects. Secondly, the project is true when I apply it to my circumstances. I dis my very best under the most difficult circumstances. To crown my past activities on the African comment, I have published ten books of poetry with US publishing houses, since I left the Bank in 2014. You may wish to access them through the link hereafter:https://www.google.com/search?q=Felix+Bongjoh&rlz=1C1CHBD_enUS817US817&oq=Felix+Bongjoh&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i60l3j69i59l2.8454j0j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

    All the best, Felix Bongjoh
