Revitalizing of village development councils of the province of Kadiogo

Implemented during 18 months and completed on the 30th of June 2011, the project supported 52 Village Development Councils in the Central Region of Burkina Faso, with the aim to promote local development and reduce poverty in the region. After the termination of the project, the Village Development Councils were well known in all the villages, identified problems, offered ideas for solutions and developped project ideas. The Village Development Councils also learned how to plan, implement, monitor and control these projects independently.

The voices of mine victims

Developed upon past experience of HOPE’87-BiH and its 20 years of comprehensive assistance provided to mine and war victims, this project represented an innovative initiative to enhance participatory democracy in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
