Burkina Faso is an operational area for World Vision’s humanitarian emergency response. World Vision provides life-saving support, to reduce suffering while strengthening resilience among women, men, boys, and girls, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender. World Vision’s operations are targeting all the regions which are affected by the conflict with an aim of reaching more than 420,000 conflict and humanitarian crisis affected people, 59% of whom are children under the age of 18 years.
World Vision’s work in Burkina Faso is implemented through a hybrid approach of direct and partnering operations, working through vetted partners who already have a proven record of presence and are assisting the affected communities. Our commitment is to reinforce – not replace – national and local systems as part of the partnership-building process. We seek to build the capacity of our implementing partners, local government institutions as well as the functional community organizations with technical, institutional, financial, and logistical support.
For more than 40 years, World Vision has partnered with communities in West Africa from rural agricultural villages, to disaster, conflict and fragile contexts. Our decades of experience have taught us that the most effective way to transform lives is through a holistic approach. Our ultimate goal is to ensure all children are cared for; protected, educated, and feel loved. Our strategy is a promise to build brighter futures for vulnerable children in West Africa. The Sustainable Development Goals, guide our development and emergency-response programming.
