Ambassador Dr. Dr. Dietrich Pohl visits Dano


In November 2016 the German Ambassador Dr. Dr. Dietrich Pohl found the opportunity to visit our Foundation Center in Dano, which he personally felt highly interesting and encouraging.

"The visit to Dano at the Dreyer Foundation has impressed me, and it is clear that personal commitment, technical expertise and the mobilization of the local forces in Burkina Faso can achieve a great deal, and the now operational solar system allows the refinement and the best possible utilization of the rice harvest in Dano and beyond. The use of the Dreyer Foundation in the context of the "One World Without Hunger" program has yielded very good results: 130 hectares have already been developed for the cultivation of rice, soon 250 are expected. I was very impressed by the local population, who, with the help of the Dreyer Foundation, will be able to take their fate into their own hands on the now newly developed areas and to improve their living conditions fundamentally.
