despite the coronavirus, children are still working in Pissy’s quarry

| |

Located on the outskirts of Ouagadougou, it is several hundred meters deep.

The Pissy open-pit granite quarry is a hole several hundred meters deep. It is located on the outskirts of Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso. This granite, which is used to build buildings, houses and roads, supports around 4,000 people every day, half of whom are women, and 400 to 700 children.

The Association of Children and Young Workers of Burkina Faso (AEJTB), works to reintegrate out of school children into society. It is supported by UNICEF and several NGOs including the Raoul Follereau Foundation.
