Welcome Mrs DENNE Honorine

We would like to extend a warm welcome to Honorine DENNE who has just joined our staff at AMPO in Ouagadougou to work on fundraising.

She comes to us with experience of project coordination, she has managed communication departments and has been the leader of several NGOs.

Mme DENNE has also worked on financing various  projects, including EU projects.

Before she took up her post officially on 2nd May 2024 she visited all of the AMPO facilities to gain an overview.

We are looking forward to working closely with Mme DENNE and wish her all the very best.

Lions fund laboratory equipment

The ceremonial handover of laboratory equipment took place on 23 March 2024. Once it is up and running, the AMPO infirmary will be able to carry out important medical tests immediately.

This laboratory equipment was financed by the Lions Club Hamburg-Altona and the North Sea Lions (Lions Clubs of the countries bordering the North Sea). The LC Ouagadougou Karite took part in the handover on their behalf.

This equipment will help many people in need. AMPO can now react much faster to certain diseases and can try to help even better.

Our thanks go to the Lions Club Hamburg-Altona and the North Sea Lions!

Where can you buy the beautiful patchwork products?

Flyer number 2

There are two possibilities!
They are made in our MIA/ALMA project. Young women who have been rejected and/or abused receive training in this project, e.g. as seamstresses.
You can buy them there and/or directly from AMPO, where you will also find the Mam Dunia restaurant.
If you are not in Ouaga, there is a second option, namely to buy them from our office in Berlin.
No matter where you are, come and visit us!

AMPO does a good job on site

Small flyers have been produced for individual projects to draw attention to the projects and products. We would like to introduce you to the projects over the next few months, starting with AMPO's wonderful restaurant "Mam Dunia".

And the Bundeswehr helped again!

Recently, the Stella-Maris Catholic Primary School in Bremerhaven donated a number of school desks and chairs. Too much for AMPO, so AMPO passed the donation on to a school about 40 kilometres from Ouagadougou. But how to get there?

1st starting signal: Hand in hand against skills shortage

With 2 strong partners at our side, we were able to hold the first intensive and concrete discussions. Wohnungsbaugenossenschaft Berolina, represented by Mr Frank Schrecker (Chairman of the Supervisory Board), agreed to provide accommodation for trainees in the future. And AHK Pflegeteam GmbH, represented by Managing Director Andreas Kröger, is of course also urgently looking for trainees and is ready to help with all the bureaucratic challenges.

We are delighted that we have been able to open the first doors with this concept and are pleased about these constructive discussions!

Are you familiar with the "Spare Cents Initiative"?

Are you familiar with the "Spare Cents Initiative"?

Employees of a company voluntarily donate the cent amounts after the decimal point from their net salary each month. In our case, the law firm BRL BOEGE ROHDE LUEBBEHUESEN in Hamburg even tripled the sums received.

A very simple way of helping that doesn't hurt.

Donation from Weltladen Kuppenheim

A wonderful initiative by the Weltladen St. Sebastian and our member Helmut Timper.

This campaign also draws attention to the event on 13 April 2024 in Kuppenheim. Katrin Rohde will be a guest there and talk about her life and the project. ...Press release

There's always something going on at AMPO!

The graduation ceremony at the TondTenga organic training farm took place in mid-December. 68 girls and boys successfully graduated.

It is a tradition that this graduation is celebrated in a big way. High-ranking representatives are therefore invited, including a delegation from Luxembourg based in Ouaga. The Luxembourg Foundation FDEE finances this wonderful project.

The well-known Burkinabe singer Don Sharp de Batoro provided the entertainment with his new song "Show your flag high"

German Armed Forces at AMPO

Yesterday AMPO had a visit from some soldiers of the German Armed Forces who are stationed in Ouaga. Their task is to provide support in training programmes such as electrician or construction.

The contact came about through the former AMPO child DONDASSE, Aziz, who has been serving in the Burkinabe army for years.

And the soldiers did not come empty-handed. They brought gifts as well as a cash donation for food.

Apparently it was an exciting visit for everyone.

Beautiful photos were taken!
