Handicap Solidaire Burkina is a non-profit organisation that relies completely on external funding for its work. Consequently we are happy to receive any donation, one off or monthly. There are two main ways you can donate to HSB:

- Your donation can go towards the running costs of HSB’s programmes in general (our particular focus at the moment is gathering funds to run the Espace Bambino, a centre providing free education and support to children with disabilities and their families.

- You can donate to our Change A Child’s Life scheme. Your donation will go directly towards helping to finance the medical bills or education of a child with disabilities who attends the Espace Bambino. To donate to this scheme, please click here.

Payment Method

There are currently two ways to donate to our child support scheme: bank transfer and Western Union. We much prefer Western Union as it benefits both parties more.

Bank Transfer

Bank Transfer Supporters are able to transfer money to Handicap Solidaire Burkina’s bank account in Burkina Faso, and details of this account are emailed to supporters once they decide to make a donation. For bank transfers, bank charges are incurred both in the sending and receiving country. As the person donating must cover ALL charges associated with the transfer, we advise supporters not to use this method of payment and instead to choose Western Union. If this is still your preferred method, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we can send you our bank details for the transfer.


After you have completed the transfer please fill in the form in the Notify A Payment section of the Donate! menu.

Western Union

We feel that Western Union is the most efficient and least costly payment method to transfer money to Burkina Faso. We are aware that some of our supporters may not be familiar with money transfers through Western Union, so we have tried to make the payment process as simple as possible. To donate via Western Union, please go to their website.

Once at the website, on the right hand side of the screen you will see a Box with three drop down menus, titles ‘Send Money Online’.

a) For Destination select Burkina Faso

b) For Pay with select Credit Card

c) For Deliver Method select Cash

d) Then enter your desired donation in the amount box.


Once you have filled the boxes out, click calculate. You will be directed to the next page which shows a calculated price/summary for your donation. 


After checking the information displayed is correct, click send money now. You will be taken to the next page where it asks you to register with Western Union to ensure a safe and reliable transaction. If you do not already have an account, please register here.


Once registered you will be directed to a second page finalising your donation. Here you will be asked to:

1. Fill in your preferred delivery method as “cash in minutes”

2. You will also be asked for the Receivers First and Surname:

First name: Mariam Surname: Compaoré

Finally you will be asked to provide a test question and answer. This is very important as we will need to be notified of your question and answer to be able to pick up your donation here in Burkina.

Once your donation has been confirmed it is important to notify us of the donation along with your test question and answer so we can collect it from the Western Union branch. To do this please fill in the form in the Notify A Payment section of the Donate! menu.
