Final Report: USAID/OTI Burkina Faso Regional Program .
Project Report | February 14, 2022
OTI/Burkina Faso Regional Program (BFRP) launched in July 2018 to seize a critical window of opportunity to address the rising threat posed by violent extremist organizations in Burkina Faso.
BFRP leveraged its $9.5 million transition activities pool (TAP) to implement 220 activities supporting locally led solutions to address the most pressing sources of instability in the program’s target communities. BFRP awarded grants to 114 partners consisting of local non-governmental organizations (NGOs), community groups, and host-country government offices. BFRP cleared its first activity in October 2018, completed its final activity in December 2021, and reached an estimated 1.5 million beneficiaries across northern and eastern Burkina Faso.
