Integrated Development Programs in Burkina Faso

Interview on radio RTL (2015-03-25):


Integrated Development Programs


The programs involve four clusters of villages as follows :

  • diocese of Banfora : province of the Comoé
  • diocese of Bobo Dioulasso : province of Houet
  • diocese of Dédougou : province of Mouhoun
  • diocese of Nouna : provinces of Kossi and Banwas.
Local Partner Organisation

Our local partners are the 4 sub-branches of the Organisation catholique pour le développement et la solidarité (OCADES) Burkina of the concerned diocèses.


In the context poverty eradication, our Foundation works in rural areas where 77% of the population of Burkina Faso live. Agricultural incomes are low, access to education and water is difficult and the capacity for action of the local communities remains weak.

Development Objective

Long-term improvement of living conditions of beneficiary households has been achieved

Expected Outcomes
  • Local governance has improved
  • Agro-sylvo-pastoral productivity in selected value chains has improved
  • Processing and marketing of agricultural products in selected value chains has improved
  • Access to quality education as well as to water an sanitation have improved



Direct beneficiaries are the inhabitants of the target villages whose numbers are estimated at:

  • about 23 000 people in the diocese of Banfora
  • about 40 000 inhabitants in the diocese of Bobo Dioulasso
  • about 29 000 inhabitants in the diocese of Dédougou
  • about 25 000 inhabitants in the diocese of Nouna

The main criteria for the selection of villages are poverty, the existence of investment opportunities and geographic integration.

In addition, the project will also benefit to the diocesan OCADES and the public and private local institutions participating in the project.


The total budget is set at € 7 280 000 million for the period 2019 to 2023, in average 364 000 € per year per IDP.


The projet is funded up to 80% by the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs and up to 1,5% by the beneficiaries. The remaining 18,5% have to be funded by CPS through donations.
