The Man Who Stopped the Desert


Date Added: 20th December 2017


In Burkina Faso, the desertification of once fertile plains caused droughts and ruined harvests, sparking a mass exodus and famines. Yet one illiterate peasant farmer and his ingenious farming methods have proved the key to achieving what experts have failed to do: stop the desert. This is the unique story of Yacouba Sawadogo, whose years of toil have transformed the lives of thousands.
