Supplying homeless children with healthcare, education, shelter, love and happiness 


As an orphanage, our goals, and objectives are to provide a safe, nurturing home for the abused, neglected, and homeless children and ensure that the children in our care receive food, clothing, health care, shelter, and most importantly, love and security. 


ATEFEO – The founder, the story and the vision

ATEFEO is a non-profit organization created by Nicole Kambou in Burkina Faso to serve children whose parents have died from HIV-AIDS or the civil war in neighbouring Ivory Coast. ATEFEO allows children to establish a foundation of well-being by giving them love, protection, support and encouragement, as well as ensuring they attend school with the necessary supplies.
