FBF and TN formed a partnership in 2014 in an effort to raise funds to build a workshop for TN members. The cooperative operates two primary income-generating activities: handicrafts and a catering service. Artisans with physical disabilities make and sell jewelry, baskets, textile products, ceramics and sculptures. Other members living with disabilities operate a catering service that prepares and delivers meals to clients living in or near Ouagadougou. These revenue-generating activities enable individuals belonging to the TN community to increase their independence and to participate in the socio-economic development of Burkina Faso.</p></div> Sun, 13 Apr 2014 14:27:15 +0000 fbf 14 at https://www.friendsofburkinafaso.org
