USADF CELEBRATES COMMUNITY IN BURKINA FASO
The United States African Development Foundation (USADF)
“Burkina Faso is celebrating its 57th year of independence on August 5, 2017. The U.S. African Development Foundation has been investing in grassroots enterprises in Burkina Faso since 2008, and funded more than 50 different projects ranging from agricultural produce like vegetables and sesame, to textile production and livestock management. These programs have targeted remote rural cooperatives and women’s groups, increasing their incomes and strengthening their communities.”
The United States African Development Foundation is an independent Federal Government agency that provides grants up to $250,000 to community-based development projects for populations in conflict and post-conflict areas in Africa.
The Foundation operates in twenty (20) African countries, including Burkina Faso. Since 2008, when USADF began programming in Burkina Faso, the Foundation has provided grants to 29 development projects amounting to $3.25 million.
