Helping communities to work their way out of poverty

Welcome to Transform Burkina, a charity which works directly with partners in Burkina Faso to eradicate poverty ‘one life at a time’.

We believe that the best solutions to the problems that Burkina Faso faces come from the Burkinabe people themselves and we work in partnership with local organisations to support initiatives in the provision of clean water and sanitation, health, education, micro credit and income generation.

The name Burkina Faso translates as ’the land of upright men’ and we believe this beautiful and hospitable country can be a blessing for the world. Please look around our site to find out more and contact us if we can help in any way.

We managed to get our agricultural starter kits to students in Burkina Faso just in time for them to sow seeds before the rainy season started, resulting in a great yield of crops for this year. 
We havent got any more funding for this project for future years, so please get in touch if you would like to help to fund this. Each kit costs £200 and pays for one more young person to be able to start their own farming business.

This year 50 students completed the agricultural course at Bethel School. We are now helping 20 of these to set up their own businesses by giving them a starter kit of tools, seeds and organic fertilizer and pesticides.

Weve funded our first dam!
In Burkina Faso, there is plenty of rain in the wet season, but the problem is having enough water for agriculture throughout the year. One simple solution is to build a dam to trap the water during the wet season, so it can then be used throughout the year.
The village of Mako now has a dam across the seasonal river Nakambe which will give them 10 Million Litres of water to last the year.
