LA DYNAMIQUE DES ONG AU BURKINA FASO: UNE EFFICACITE EN QUESTION

Abstract : Looked upon by the International Institutions as one of the poorest countries in the world, especially since the periods of drought in the 70s and the 80s, Burkina-Faso, as a Sahelian area, has been for the last 30 years a special land for NGOs' actions. Multicultural, diversified, but also landlocked country, Burkina-Faso tries to be as open as possible to the Voluntary Services Overseas, and to any backer and sponsor. Here are the reasons why it is usually called « the NGOs' country ».
After emergency measures and sporadic actions, for twenty years has taken place a real organisation, with long-term development projects and Voluntary Services Overseas, dealt by the International donors' points of views, but planned with beneficiaries. As a consequence, many NGOs think that, nowadays, beneficiaries became real partners. Nevertheless, as the development aid is too often poorly funnelled and not very coordinated, it leads to a bad geographical distribution and inequalities in the country. The different inhabitants have everyday habits and customs that may be very different from the ones and the wishes of the decisions-makers. Therefore, the intermediaries are often the only ones who benefit by those "development programs", that aren't to the destitute advantages. In fact, if the NGOs look like being efficient and various, their interventions are still stereotyped and made from occidental ways and points of views.
This study presents the main NGOs, analyses their achievements and their failures. It also explains the "NGOs phenomena" through its members, ways of acting and evolution in an non-governmental statement.
