Our Partners


Our activities would not be possible without the support of our partners, listed below. If you are able to partner with us and support us with our work, please get in touch.


Current Partners


Handicap Solidaire Suisse


Handicap Solidaire Suisse (HSS) is a disability rights organisation working to further the dignity and autonomy of disabled people in developing countries. HSS financially supported the creation of Handicap Solidaire Burkina (HSB) in 2002, as well as all of HSB’s activities from 20022005. Since then, HSS has been a key strategic partner, as HSB has sought greater autonomy in financing its own activities in an effort for greater sustainability.



Tigoung Nonma


Tigoung Nonma (TN) was founded by Handicap Solidaire Suisse in 2005, and gained its official NGO status in 2006. TN is a cooperative of disabled artisans in Burkina Faso that shares its headquarters with Handicap Solidiare Burkina. The cooperative provides sales opportunities and professional training to disabled artisans, who produce a wide variety of products including batiks, clothes, pottery, woodwork, leather goods, toys, jewellery, table cloths and sculptures. The cooperative supports artisans to work together in organising stalls and exhibitions at festivals and events.



International Service


International Service is an international development charity based in the UK. It operates within a web of strategic delivery partners based in Brazil, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali, and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Its aim is to strive for a world where everybody has the ability to achieve their full potential. The services it is involved in are primarily, but not exclusively, aimed at the following communities: disabled people, children and young people, women, and people living with HIV/AIDS.

International Service partnered with HSB in 2005, when it provided the organisation with British development workers. Since 2011, HSB has been receiving British volunteers as part of the International Citizen Service (ICS) scheme. The ICS programme is funded by the UK government’s Department for International Development (DfID), and sends young volunteers to work on development projects for 12-week placements.



Coaching for Hope


Coaching for Hope (CFH) has been a HSB partner since 2012. CFH is an international development and volunteering charity that uses football as a vehicle to better the lives of people living in developing countries. Its strategy is to utilise the global passion for sport, and in particular football, as a forum for sharing important information such as HIV/AIDS awareness. By training coaches in developing countries, CFH’s method can be perpetuated and filtered through the communities they seek to affect, creating long-term, sustainable change.





E-Changer is a Swiss development organisation for North and South solidarity. Previously called “Brothers without Borders,” they have worked for 50 years in partnership with organisations and local communities in Latin America and Africa. Their aim is to reinforce social movements and to improve socio-economic conditions in these target areas.
