Beleko is een klein plattelandsdorp in het West-Afrikaanse land Mali. In de vijfentwintig op zichzelf staande hoofdstukken ontmoeten we Nederlandse ontwikkelingssamenwerkers, Franse missionarissen en Malinese ambtenaren, gezondheidswerkers, landbouwers, dorpsvrouwen en hun kinderen. Allen proberen op hun eigen manier zin te geven aan hun leven terwijl hun paden elkaar kruisen in het dagelijkse Afrikaanse dorpsbestaan in de eind tachtiger jaren van de twintigste eeuw. We lezen, vanuit de verschillende personages beschreven, over hun achtergronden, hun hartstochten en strijd - en hoe zij elkaar op zeer beslissende wijze beinvloeden. Beleko is a small village in the West African state of Mali. In the book’s twenty-five chapters we meet Dutch development workers, French missionaries and Malian public service workers, health workers, farmers, village women and their children. All of these characters strive in their different ways to give meaning to their lives as their paths cross in the daily village life of Africa at the end of the 1980s. As each character tells his or her own story, we learn of their backgrounds, their passions and their struggles – and how they influence each other in decisive ways.
