ATEFEO

(Atelier D’Education et de Formation Des Enfants Orphelins) a French acronym meaning “A Training & Education Program for Orphan Children”  is a non-profit organization created by Nicole Kambou in Burkina Faso. The organization was created to aid children whose parents died from HIV-AIDS or as a result of the civil war in neighbouring Ivory Coast.

ATEFEO also runs a foster program in which children are paired with volunteering families and are provided with excellent care.

Since year 2000, ATEEFO has been responsible for helping over 500 children per year. We continue and will continue to focus on the well being of each child that comes into our care without hesitation, discrimination or apology.
