SOS SAHEL International Burkina Faso is an NGO whose vision is: "we dream of a Burkina Faso where all populations have a continuous and equitable access to the fruits of sustainable development".

Its mission is "To cultivate the spirit of national and international solidarity for the benefit of disadvantaged populations in Burkina Faso".

To better align its interventions with its mission, the NGO has a five-year strategic plan for 2011 - 2015. This plan is the basic programmatic document since its adoption and SOSSIBF has set itself as strategic goals i) Promote basic social services; ii) Contribute to the development of development policies for the poor and iii) Support and promote local know-how. These orientations have been aligned with the main strategic axes enshrined in the following national and international political documents and plans:

  1.             the Accelerated Growth and Sustainable Development Strategy (SCADD) 2011-2015,
  2.       the National Rural Sector Development Policy (PNSR) 2011-2015;
  3.       the National Plan of Supply of Drinking Water and Sanitation (PN / AEPA) 2006-2015;
  4.       the National Health Development Plan (PNDS) 2011-2020,
  5.       the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 2010-2015;

The year 2016 was marked by the end of most of the old programs that came to an end and the start of the following new national and international plans / programs:

  •     The National Economic and Social Development Plan (PNDES) 2016-2020
  •     The National Rural Sector Development Program, phase 2 (PNSR2) 2016-2020;
  •     The National Program for Drinking Water Supply (PNEAP) 2016-2020
  •     The National Program for Sewage and Excreta Water Remediation (PN AEUE) 2016-2020;
  •     The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2016-2030

As a reminder, the highlight of the year 2016 at the national level is the holding of the municipal elections on May 22, 2016 which allowed the establishment of municipal councils thus devoting the normalization of the electoral process interrupted following the popular insurrection of 2014 and the failed coup d'etat of September 2015. Fortunately, these ups and downs did not have a major impact on SOSSIBF's activities.

At the internal level of SOS Sahel International Burkina Faso, there has been a renewal of the governing bodies including the Board of Directors (CA) and the Executive Board (BE). These changes have not spared the Executive Management.
