The lack of drinking water in many parts of Burkina Faso is a crucial issue. In some cases, even where there are wells with a water pump, the water can be unsafe for human consumption (for example: you can have a strong presence of arsenic or an excessive amount of limestone or many other situations). In February 2015 two "solwa" - an invention recognized by UN as one of the ten most important inventions of the year 2011- have been installed at two elementary schools: the first in the village of Lallé-Yactenga 50 km North of the capital Ouagadougou and the second in the village Nakar-Bomé, about 60 km from Bobo-Dioulasso in the South of the country.
