Idrissa Sawadogo, 62 years old, a farmer said, "There are no more young people to assist with field work. They are all in the mines looking for gold. They think it is easier to earn money this way. For now there is food, but everything will become more expensive. I'm getting old and the money my children earn from gold is not enough for the family." Sindri village, Burkina Faso.
