I started volunteering on Ouganet because I found it in Onlinevolunteering.com. I found that the job they are doing in Burkina Faso is amazing. In a country that is broken, where the state doesn't reach every part of it, there is a necessity for the Non profit organizations to exist. Africa is full of countries where the state is broken, fragmented and where the civil war has been going on for centuries but Ouganet is trying to find a balance in certain aspects and because of certain programmes. I think that anyone who can help this NPO should do it, because, after all, we are helping the people in Burkina Faso to have a little faith, hope, that something better is yet to come, that it doesn't always resolve around violence.
Ouaganet is a wondelful nonprofitable organization. Most African people have ideas how to develop their villages, but they do not have finances. They try to create cooperatve, but they do not have supports. As African, we need this kind of organization.
Burkina Faso is a small country in the African continent, and that, most of us have not even heard of. It is unnoticed at the international journalism. And perhaps, the few people that know it, only know it for having the worse literacy rates in the World. With all that in mind, Burkina Faso undergoes serious problems of extreme poverty, and to find an organization such as Ouaganet, that tackles this problem, while understanding its cultural particularities is something that makes me joyful, and gives me a reason to think that there are, after all, people that think about the well being of others. Also, the organization is very helpful in providing something for their volunteers to do, even if it is online. Overall, I am really satisfied at the job that this NGO does, and I can say without any single trace of doubt that Ouaganet is doing something for mankind. Even if most of us do not notice or acknowledge it.
I discovered OUAGANET via United Nations Volunteering. As soon as I visited their web site and saw the amazing work they are carrying on in Burkina Faso, their straightforward philosophy attracted my attention: it made me realize commitment, hard work, transparency and willpower can make a difference. I wanted to be part of that so I started volunteering with them a couple of weeks ago in the field of Public Relations. Luc Zio, founder of OUAGANET, gives me excellent and useful feedback on my work and all the information one could need, besides the support and the freedom to do my best. I feel I am not just doing PR, but I am also taking part in something meaninful: making the world a fairer and better place. And that is invaluable.
Though I started with ouaganet a couple of days ago, it has made me aware about the amazing work that this organisation is doing. I have been constantly monitoring their site and I can now proudly call myself to be associated as a volunteer with the organisation. I feel that in times to come this organisation would only strengthen its roots in the area.
I really like the group.Its owesome! It gives back to the community, continue spreading your wings plz, in Kenya I 'm much willing to be incharge if in any case.Fantastic idea. lets all join hands people....It cuts across all professionals, lets contribute and share what we have and we know please...............Cheers.
I found OUAGANET through UNV volunteering service to volunteer as an illustrator to create a set of illustrations that will help to publish an ebook as a fundraiser to help the poor youth in the village in Burkina Faso. I was attracted to volunteer with them as I found their empowering activities very meaningful and impactful. Luc Zio, director of Ouaganet, is very well organized and gave me excellent brief to do the job. In particular, my ilustrations go along with a set of poems related to the life in Burkina Faso. Some of the poems were written by Luc Zio himself and I could tell his humanitarian approach and his big heart and passion to support those in need.
