ASAP was founded in 1997 by Hervé Millet, following a 40-year long exchange of letters with his pen pal Jean Millogo in Burkina Faso. Hervé secured an arrangement between a village and the government of Burkina Faso. If the inhabitants of Fina village built a medical clinic themselves, the government would send a nurse. To have their own badly needed clinic was a longtime wish of the villagers.
What makes ASAP unique is that it insists on the involvement of villagers in order to achieve sustainable development. The funds required to run the foundation are kept as low as possible, which means that ASAP devotes 95 % of raised funds to projects in Burkina Faso!
