How it works Our method

Local projects go glocal

Yennenga Progress goes beyond the eye catching problems, with a totally holistic approach, covering all the UN Global Goals and adapting an entrepreneurial thinking. Local needs to support daily life is identified and developed in the village Nakamtenga, in Burkina Faso, West Africa.

Competence for change

The Yennenga Progress global network of competence, gives Change Makers locally, continuous further training, on their request, with tools and knowledge they need for the next step of development. Collaboration is born to find good solutions, fulfill the needs and create best practice to help others achieve the UN Global Goals.

Sustainable societies

Yennenga Progress is now creating a model to achieve the UN Global Goals through social franchising. Jobs are created and the long term goal is for the villages to become independent, funding their own welfare. Lasting progress emerge by local efforts together with international partnership.

We need you!

One of the most important aspects of Yennenga Progress is the partnership network. We match relevant people in our network with ideas, activities, and projects where their competence will be most valuable.
