Burkina Faso

BDC Burkina Faso is located in Ouagadougou, and is by the Regent Center for Entrepreneurship (RCE). We’re excited to welcome Burkina Faso to the BDC Network family as our 6th licensed Center, commencing in July of 2017 and officially set to launch in November of 2017. It is led by licensee, Israel Ilboudo, of ACTS Burkina.


We have a big vision for transforming Burkina Faso and need help from those of like mind and vision. There are a number of ways you can volunteer to serve in a Business Development Center:

  • Donate – We are in need of financial partners willing to support this project through a tax-deductible financial gift. We will send you updates and stories about the lives, families, and communities that are changed because of the program in Uganda.
  • Be a Visiting Executive – VEs are typically business owners, executives and entrepreneurs who travel to a Business Development Center where they meet with our learners and graduates to provide them with council, coaching and mentoring. A second role for VEs is to consult with government policy makers and to teach seminars aimed at various business sectors where they have expertise.
  • Become a Distance Consultant – Our students appreciate the assistance of an online mentor as they continue their business ventures post graduation. You can help them succeed without a passport.
  • Prayer & Encouragement Partners – Our students and graduates also greatly appreciate intercessors that provide encouragement through prayer, specifically for them and their businesses.

Contact us if you would like to volunteer to serve or get involved with a Business Development Center!

We are anticipating God’s continued faithfulness as we keep growing a global network of BDC’s around the world. Stay up to date on BDC Burkina Faso‘s website.
