About Transform Burkina

Transform Burkina was founded in 2010 by Christians who had first-hand experience of the country.  We are a small UK registered charity, managed by a board of trustees, all of whom are directly involved in the work.

We also employ an Executive Officer, part time, to help us to manage projects and raise funding.
