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.
