Association Burkinabè de Fundraising

"The most important thing, I think, is to have led people to have confidence in themselves, to understand that at last they can sit down and write about their development, write about their happiness and say what they want. And at the same time, to feel what the price is for happiness".


A world where development initiatives affect all levels of the population and where ABCs play their full role with the active and conscious participation of all social strata.


Accompany Civil Society Organisations in their activities for endogenous community development, especially in mobilising support and resources,  


Once upon a time, in Burkina Faso, there was a group of people who cared about the future of their country. They knew that NGOs and associations played a crucial role in the development of their community. They had noticed that these organisations often lacked the financial resources and technical support to implement their programmes on the ground. This prevented them from having a significant and lasting impact on people's lives.

This is how the Association Burkinabè de Fundraising (ABF), a non-political and non-profit association, was created on 23 December 2008 in Ouagadougou. The objective of the ABF was clear: Work in capacity building of community-based associations committed to endogenous development so that they can implement concrete projects on the ground.

A partner in endogenous development

Since its creation, ABF has grown and succeeded in accompanying several community-based associations throughout the country. It has also organised training to build the capacity of local actors and has helped to create strong partnerships between different organisations.

Thanks to its hard work and commitment to sustainable development, the ABF was officially recognised on 22 May 2009, strengthening its credibility and visibility among local and international stakeholders.

Today, ABF continues to support NGOs and associations so that they can play a dynamic role in building an emerging Burkina Faso. It has become a reference in the field of fundraising and continues to inspire many civil society actors throughout the country. Thanks to her work, many communities have benefited from concrete projects that have improved their quality of life and well-being.

We operate throughout Burkina Faso and French-speaking Africa.
