After all, why are the people of this village breaking stones for 40 years?


What do people have to do to fill their stomachs? For this, many people have to work against their will. Today we are going to give you information about a country where people have to work to break stones for the last 40 years. 

The country we are going to give you information about is the West African country of Burkina Faso. People have been sweating in the granite quarry for forty years in the capital of this country, Ouagedugu. This is the only option left for the people here to earn. For this reason, they are forced to sweat in the mine.

The pit was dug 40 years ago for a granite quarry in the heart of the Pisi district in central Ouagadugu. At that time, for the people of the poverty-stricken area, this mine became the means of their livelihood. His work continues even today. You will be surprised to know that there is no owner of this mine. People here earn money by selling granite obtained from excavation.
