The winner is

For the next 24 months of my life i will be living in Nakaba!!! its abut 140k away from the Capital (Waga), but i am only 5k away from the main road, so i wont have to bike far. it is in the east, in the district of Koupela. I will be living in my own house that my head nurse built especially for me. the house is on the CSPC compounds. I am a first generation volunteer to my site, which means no other volunteer of any kind have been here, and I am one of the first health volunteers in my district. I have another health volunteer in Koupela (about 35k away) and a SED (small enterprise development) volunteer in Fada.

I have been n Burkina for a month now and things are going well right now each day we learn more and more and i can finally see all the pieces coming together. the other day we learned how to make 3 different types of enriched pourage. we also went to visit the CREN. it is a unit inside of the hospital where women and their babies can go if they are severely malnourished. they get treatment for mother and chld, and the mother gets classes on nutrition.

overall I am alive and happy with my site placement!!!
