Djahakro--Rosalie, 2010

Rosalie is the President of the Women in the village of Djahakro. We just built a well there. When you dig a well, you have to send the diggers back periodically to dig farther down as the water retreats during the dry season. The civil unrest has suspended any work on the well, because the well diggers are Dioula (from the North) and therefore cannot travel safely because of the hatred between Bété and Baoulé (Christian) against the Dioula (Muslim).
