Kadoua and the Elephants

In Burkina Faso, Kadoua Yogo hopes for a better future for her family. Her home is also that of the great gray landscapers. Together, humans and elephants make the most of a last patch of wilderness where treasures grow on the branches. These precious shea fruits could permanently change everyone’s lives. As long as they thrive here. That’s what a strong group of women from Kollo, an enterprising soapmaker, rangers who risk their lives every day to protect elephants, and French conservationist Olivier Behra are working for. At the center of it all is a woman who faces all odds with grace and pride and never loses hope for a better life.

G'day, Sir!

Thank you for your interest in Text & Bild.

Unfortunately we were too excited and could not wait to launch our brand new website. The english translation of our site was sacrified by our drive. But we'll fix this shortly.

Thank you for your understanding.
