Uganda
The poorest area in the centre of Africa few kilometres from Sudan is where our activities are located.
Byelo goes where the needs are more pressing and where bigger and much more equipped international Organizations do not reach.
As many others African Countries Uganda has a restless history with very few periods of peace. A legend tells that Uganda was the name of a great hunter from Unyoro so skilled that he could feed the whole Country.
The difference from the relatively better conditions of the Southern regions is striking. The crossing of the bridge on the river Nile, during twenty years of the LRA guerrilla, has been the ideal border beyond which there was war, famine, epidemics and fear.
Negotiations for peace are under way and the recovery of the Country is slowly starting.

Burkina Faso
The State of Burkina Faso is located on a desert plateau in sub-Saharan Africa which has a very dry tropical climate. The lack of resources and the poverty of the population are the reason why Burkina Faso is considered one of the most backward and underdeveloped countries in the world. Arbolé is situated in the northern province of Passoré, one of the 45 provinces of the country. Its capital is Yako. History.

India
India is a federal constitutional republic consisting of 28 states and 7 union territories with independent parliaments and governments. The capital is New Delhi. The State of Madhya Pradesh, which means in hindi, ‘Central Province’, is located in the geographic heart of India. Its capital is Bhopal. Madhya Pradesh has a subtropical climate. Like most of north India it has a hot dry summer (April-June) followed by monsoon rains (July-September) and a cool and relatively dry winter. According to the International Food Policy Institute the malnutrition situation in Madhya Pradesh is "extremely alarming", receiving a severity rating between Ethiopia and Chad. This regards specifically the area of our intervention, the district of Khandwa, in the south-east not far from the border of the State of Maharashtra. About 50 km from Khandwa we find the village of Karpur which can be reached by the population only by ox carts, due to the road conditions. The lack of electricity makes the irrigation system collapse. The habitants are mainly adivasi (indigenous tribal groups) or Dalits ( lowest in the Hindu caste system). Illiteracy is dominant. The population is cut off from the main stream of development. History
