More than 200 VSO volunteers contributed to the development of Burkina Faso through various interventions to strengthen the capacity of our partners in the areas of health and participation and government.
In 2011, VSO reviewed the best way to allocate our resources to make the greatest possible difference to global poverty. We decided we would begin to close programmes if the country we were operating in was:
not least developed
had relatively smaller numbers of people in poverty
had less regional or global influence
VSO’s Burkina Faso country office closed in March 2014
