Burkina Faso

Lafiabougou Church

At Lafiabougou we have a children's club with about 1,000 children. We are doing a great work among the children at Sabaribougou School where there is a pastor working full-time in children's ministry. He is teaching the teachers how to have a significant impact on the children in their classes. In the villages things are also changing with Pastors placing a greater focus on children's ministry rather than simply focussing on the adults. We have a vision to support pastors planting churches into unreached people groups. 


Objectives & Next Steps

Last trip saw 33 pastors attend Part 3 training with 7 pastors identified as possible trainers and attending a Train the Trainers course. Development of an in-country training team a real possibility. 


  • Finish the process of equipping the 7 trainers  

  • Work on a strategy with our partner to support those trainers to deliver training to the unreached people groups 

Next Steps

  • Get materials translated into French  

  • Book a return visit to finish the training of the 7 local trainers

Considerations for Trips to Burkina Faso


Significant threat from terrorism and currently the FCO advises against all travel. However, our partner on the ground is very trustworthy and trip in February 2024 was completely trouble free. Advice ALWAYS to be taken from local partner and decisions made accordingly. On the Open Doors Watchlist.


Sanitation in Burkina Faso can sometimes be poor. It is advisable to bring basic sanitation products such as alcohol gel, wet wipes, and antiseptic cream. Your trip leader should be carrying a first aid kit. For vaccination advice and other information about health in Burkina Faso, visit: Travel Health Pro


E visa – apply online well in advance 

Dress Code

For men: You will likely need to be wearing trousers in formal settings such as Church and leading the training. A pair of shorts may be worn in leisure time. 


For women: Erring on the modest side is always wise, avoiding low cut, short, or tight clothing. In more rural areas, increased modesty is advised.
