Volunteering Burkina Faso

Volunteering Burkina Faso! Go Volunteer Africa, the leading and largest volunteer travel organization welcomes you to Burkina Faso. Burkina Faso, which means “land of honest men”, has significant reserves of gold, but the country has faced domestic and external concern over the state of its economy and human rights.

A poor country even by West African standards, landlocked Burkina Faso has suffered from recurring droughts and military coups. Volunteering in Burkina Faso is becoming easier, with Go Volunteer Africa’s volunteer travel program. Go Volunteer Africa is offering a number of volunteer opportunities in Burkina Faso.

Volunteering Burkina Faso


Burkina Faso is a landlocked country in West Africa with an area of 274,200 square kilometers (105,900 sq mi), bordered by Mali to the northwest, Niger to the northeast, Benin to the southeast, Togo and Ghana to the south, and the Ivory Coast to the southwest. It has a population of 20,321,378. Previously called Republic of Upper Volta (1958–1984), it was renamed Burkina Faso by President Thomas Sankara. Its citizens are known as Burkinabè, and its capital and largest city is Ouagadougou.

63% of its population practices Islam and 22% practice Christianity. Due to French colonialism, the country’s official language of government and business is French. There are 59 native languages spoken in Burkina, with the most common language, Mooré, spoken by roughly 50% of Burkinabè. The country is governed as a semi-presidential republic with executive, legislative and judicial powers.
