New kiln for women potters in Pétégoli, Soum Province, Burkina Faso



A book of photgraphs taken by Nina Adler, photographer, during her stay in the village of Pétégoli, Soum Province, Burkina Faso, in early 2011 whilst a new kiln was built for a group of women potters as part of the DW "Adaptation to Climate Change" project supported by the European Union,

The kilns allow women to economise about 80% of their fuel needs per kilogramme of ceramics produced, and they also help the women extend their range of products, including making terra cotta floor tiles, which increase their income generation. DW works with many hundreds of women potters in Burkina Faso. See
