Welcome to Burkina Faso, the "Land of Upright Men", and welcome to the website of Transform Burkina, a charity which works directly with partners in Burkina Faso with the aim of helping to eradicate poverty through the funding of projects in the fields of education, health and water provision.

Thank you for taking the time to look around our website and become involved in the very special work being undertaken by Transform Burkina.

We focus on three key areas:


Clean water is something we take for granted in the UK, but in the world's poorest countries it is a resource that is often scarce and hard to come by. Many of the diseases that affect these countries are also born out of unclean water and stagnant water is a breeding ground for the world's most prolific killer – the malaria carrying mosquito. 

Visit our water page to see what we are helping to provide and ways your support can help bring clean water to those who are desperately in need of it.


Transform Burkina supports health projects, identified by our partners on the ground,  ensuring that funding is spent in the most practical and beneficial ways for the local population.

View our health page to see some of the projects we are currently involved in. 


Bringing education to  people is a liberating experience and empowers them to make sustainable changes to their own environment.

Please join us on our education page to see some of the opportunities we are helping to create and ways you can become involved.
