Thank you for visiting the Friends of Burkina Faso (FBF) website! As President of FBF, it is my honor and privilege to welcome you. We hope you find the site informative and enjoyable. What's more, we hope you'll find some way to engage with FBF now and in the future.


I am Faissal R. Ouedraogo, originally from Ouahigouya, in Burkina Faso. I am a Ph.D. candidate and Teaching/Research Assistant at the University of South Florida seeking a degree in Water Resources.


I am prepared and ready to continue building on our past successes while bringing new and exciting ideas in line with our vision. We are proud of our community-led projects, our FBF Award for Peace, our vibrant Facebook page with regular news from Burkina, and much more. We are among the most active “Friends of” groups affiliated with the National Peace Corps Association.
