Burkina Faso

About this partnership

The Burkina Faso partnership was formed in 2014 and is really just beginning its work.

We have made one trip to BF to meet with our in-country partner, Joseph Dayamba, and to get a better idea of how we can merge our efforts with what he has already begun. Joseph is a gifted evangelist and communicator and has started several churches, as well as a school. He has had a great deal of success in converting Muslims to Christianity, primarily through his loving interactions with their children. We are currently working with Joseph to set some short and long-term goals for the partnership.

About Burkina Faso   

Burkina Faso is located in west Africa and is bordered by six countries: Benin, Cote d'lvoire, Ghana, Mali, Niger, and Togo. Burkina Faso is a poor, landlocked country that depends on adequate rainfall. About 80% of the population is engaged in subsistence farming and cotton is the main cash crop. The country has few natural resources and a weak industrial base. Cotton and gold are Burkina Faso’s key exports and Burkina Faso’s economic growth and revenue depends on global prices for the two commodities.
