Summary

In one of the poorest countries in the world, Tigoung Nonma (TN) provides a network of physically disabled Artists and Master-Crafts people that enables them to gain needed skills and to generate their own income. However, this negligible income is not enough. This project will help TN to build an accessible center where it can offer training, make and sell members' Art, and run its catering service. In April 2018, TN purchased a plot of land with a maisonette on it, ready to refurbish.

Challenge

Our current location does not meet the needs of wheelchair users and employs a limited amount of outdated equipment. This prevents the cooperative catering to as many members as needed. Without modern, accessible facilities where the co-operative can compete in a difficult economy, it is hard to see how they will get by independently.

Solution

Members specialise in a variety of Artistic domains: jewellery and textile design, pottery, bronze, woodwork, leather-work, battiks and Art made from recycled materials. TN also operates a catering service that prepares and delivers meals to clients. To develop its existing entrepreneurial activities, Tigoung Nonma needs improved equipment and adapted space. Slowly, this will allow more members to gain an income thus giving access to healthcare, better nutrition, education and transport.

Long-Term Impact

Due to issues of accessibility, education and discrimination, people with disabilities have few income earning opportunities in Ouagadougou.This in turn leaves their families vulnerable to social and economic exclusion and often denies them any social mobility. By helping Tigoung Nonma achieve their longstanding goal of having their own modern, wheelchair accessible space you are helping an entrepreneurial organisation afford themselves greater dignity and financial security in the future.
