Created in 1997, the women’s association of Kabeela in Guilongou and Ziniaré is a non-profit and apolitical Burkinabe organisation. Today it has around 60 members, essentially made up of women.
Kabeela is active in 85 villages throughout the region of the Plateau Central, notably in the provinces of Ganzourgou, Kourweogo and Oubritenga. The association’s office is situated in the village of Guilongou, 4km from the town of Ziniaré.
Kabeela aims to contribute to the social and economic promotion of the most vulnerable populations in rural areas, encouraging their active participation to transform their communities. We work with women, providing them with literacy teaching, professional training and income generating activities as well as raising awareness on women’s health. We hope that this will allow Kabeela’s members to self-promote themselves and their abilities.
We work to achieve long-lasting development for communities containing the most marginalised and vulnerable populations, creating opportunities to help improve people’s living conditions.
