"officier de l'ordre national de Burkina Faso"

... is the title awarded to the charity AMPO International e.V. (former Sahel e.V.) in Burkina Faso, represented by Katrin Rohde,

This honour is usually awarded on 11th December, the national day of celebration.  In 2017 the celebrations took place in Gaoua, far from Ouagadougou and so the ceremony was held on 5th December 2017 at the presidential palace.

Candidates must be nominated for this award which is the second highest national distinction.

This honour is a confirmation of the work we are doing because it reminds us once more that we have the right projects to support the right people..

Congratulations from all our members, sponsors and friends to Katrin Rohde!
