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".

Giving for Change programme

Programme Strengthening civil society in Burkina Faso

In the framework of international cooperation, the Dutch government has developed the programme "Strengthening Civil Society" with the sub-programme "Power of Voices", the NGO  Wilde Ganzen of the Netherlands has been selected as an implementation partner with its five-year programme "Giving for Change" on behalf of an international alliance. The Burkinabe Fundraising Association (ABF) is the National Anchor Institute of Giving for Change and has contextualised the programme with its partners as 'giving for endogenous development'.

ABF is headquartered in Ouagadougou and operates in French-speaking West Africa. ABF  accompanies community-based associations in achieving their mission by consolidating their professional skills in mobilising support and resources. It was founded on 23 December 2008 in Ouagadougou. The association was officially recognised on 22 May 2009 by Receipt No. 2009-333/MATD/SG/DGLPAP/DOASOC. The last renewal of the authorities was on 30 May 2020, number 2030, valid until 29 May 2025.

The role of civil society in the development of Burkina Faso

Civil society actors (CSAs) in Burkina Faso have immense potential to leverage development. Unfortunately, their credibility is often tested because they are seen as serving politics. Also, most international donors ignore the potential of CSAs. Yet, CSOs have the responsibility to locate and fill gaps in public service. They also lobby, ensure the implementation of the law, accountability and transparency, and build the capacity of members and the population through training and awareness-raising.

The Programme's target areas


Promote and enhance the culture of local giving through capacity building of local CSAs to achieve their endogenous development mission.


Influencing national and societal actors in the country to support and encourage local and national giving for endogenous development.


Convince international donors to prioritise empowerment and capacity building of local CHWs for their credibility.
