Association Watinooma pour le Développement des Femmes du Sanmatenga Burkina Faso

Posted in Women Empowerment Projects |Date:March 13th , 2018|Comments: 0

Watinooma is a women's association, created since November 1994 by a group of strong willing  women living in Kaya in the province of Sanmatenga, 2 hours from Ouagadougou, the capital city of Burkina Faso. Watinooma means "come and be happy" in Moore the language of the Mossi tribe. Watinooma's main goals are: to empower women through training and skill development of the members, to create a sustainable and durable development of the production and marketing of the local food products, allowing the members to become more independent to help their families with income generating activities and micro loans.

Watinooma is a very dynamic association that continues to develop and implement many different initiatives not only in Kaya but in the surrounding villages: beef and sheep husbandry; small businesses for the youth;  storage of cereals; agriculture; transformation and sale of local products: shea butter, peanut butter, honey; adult schooling; school fees for children; implementation of bee hives. Your donation and help will go a long way, especially for our young women and girls.
