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.
