Atelier de Formation et de Promotion des Artisans - Burkina Faso

Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) West Africa works with more than 400 artisans from 20 workshops in and around the capital city of Ouagadougou and Bobo Dioulasso, the economic centre of Burkina Faso. MCC is a relief, development and peace agency of the North American Mennonite and Brethren in Christ churches, with programs in more than 50 countries. Sissao Hamidou, a colleague of MCC, acts as a liaison with artisans. Some of the artisans also work at the Atelier de Formation et de Promotion des Artisans and Village Artisanal de Ouagadougou, which since 2000 has showcased the work of Burkinabe artisans.
