ASAP Foundation has set up various organizations in Burkina Faso to take over the implementation of various projects. These are now independent entities in Burkina Faso. These local entities are responsible for their own fundraising (as far as possible) and / or generating income from economic projects.


The role of ASAP Nederland is to raise funds for projects in Burkina Faso, advise the organizations in Burkina and monitor the implementation of the projects.

In order to further empower people in Burkina Faso, several local organizations were created with the same personnel who have taken more responsibility. ASAP BF owns the office in Bobo Dioulasso, and the buildings and land around the secondary school: Lycée Agricole Privé (LAP). ASAP BF has an agreement with the Ministry of Cooperation of Burkina Faso.

Implementation of projects in Burkina Faso

In the past 19 years, ASAP has been implementing projects in Burkina Faso through its own registered NGO, ASAP BF.

Each local organization has its own board and ASAP controls their activities through reporting and visits by its founder and board members.



To support the development projects related to the villages where we are active, a new Burkinabe organization was created called “Association pour des Petits Projets Africains” or APPA. It has 13 all local employees.


For the development of the agricultural boarding school (LAP) which opened in 2011, we have also started a new organization called “Association pour le Lycée Agricole Privé” or ALAP. It has 14 permanent employees.


APPA also produces and sells products using raw materials from the villages: shea/karité butter, honey and locust beans. It was decided in 2020 to separate this (commercial) activity from the village development projects. For this, a cooperative is being created called “Société Coopérative simplifiée pour la Valorisation des Produits du Terroir” or SCOOPS VPT.


In addition, ASAP BF has also helped launch a sewing workshop that manufactures washable protection for menstruation, face masks and uniforms: “Actions pour le Besoin des Femmes” or ABF. It has 5 permanents employees.
