Homestead in Yako, Boure, Burkina Faso

The life in Yako, Boure is rural village living. Where the pigs live outside the hut, the only reliable and affordable transportation is a bicycle and women work all day to take care of the home, fetch water and care for their children. Here, all is captured, showcasing the beautiful synergy of simplicity.
