our ethical commitments

empowering women

Except Souleymane, who sews the handdles of our bags, and Louis, the bronze maker, all the artisans we work with are women.

Facteur Celeste fosters women employment as they have a more difficult access to well valued jobs, all the more when disabled (26% of the women in our workshops).

Bring regular revenues to women have a greater impact on society as they would reinvest 90% of it into the whole family well-being.

more than a job

Facteur Celeste works daily with 52 women in Burkina Faso, in 4 workshops. 3 of them are in Ouagadougou, the other in Po, in the South of the country.

The workshops welcome new women regularly but at a slow pace, in order to be able to warrant the new women some work for the upcoming months.

Besides monthly revenues, that are 30% higher than the national average income, the women benefit from literacy courses, thematic trainings (international business, how to fix a price, how to conceive a collection, etc.). 

They also have health insurance and a priviledge access to the local clinic, and an allocation for their children or grandchildren school fees.
