Great enterprises demand great partners.

NGOs, governmental institutions, charity organisations, universities and study and research centres: in over 20 years we have worked with many partners to save the rural community of our country from destitution.

Profound ties and enriching alliances have been created with every partner. This is why we would like to list them one by one, thanking them sincerely for the trust, enthusiasm and professionalism they put into supporting our efforts every day.

How we work with our partners.

Enthusiasm is a language that everyone speaks.

Enthusiastic faces: those of the partners and sponsors who support us and often come to see our teamwork for themselves.

These are private institutions, NGOs, governmental bodies, universities from all over the world and private individuals who have been helping us to fight poverty and social exclusion in an increasing number of rural villages in our country for over 20 years.

A meeting online or in the heart of the forest?

The Kafo Federation’s projects are implemented through periodic meetings held online or face-to-face, perhaps among the age-old trees in our rural centre in Djalicunda.

During these meetings, attended by Kafo professionals, village chiefs or women leaders of rural projects, and sometimes even our partners, the needs are assessed and potential solutions outlined; everyone contributes with their own skills, vision and experience. 

Finally, the participants of each project are in constant contact, through other meetings and detailed reports.

This modus operandi makes the role of our sponsors particularly rewarding and engaging, as they become an active part of the project definition and privileged observers of the changes taking place, month after month, in the economic and social condition of entire villages and entire regions of the country.
