Volunteers live in communities where they integrate into the population and work alongside members of the community. This integration allows our Volunteers to make significant contributions to the sustainable development of their communities.

We work with the Ministry of Agriculture and Water to help rural, small scale farmers improve their agriculture-based enterprises in an effort to advance and sustain their food security and, ultimately, their resiliency.

We work with the CRS to improve the education system in Burkina Faso. We also work with CRS to increase smallholder farmer household income and improve business management.
