Initiative Pananetugri pour le Bien-être de la Femme, a philanthropic, apolitical and non-denominational organization under Burkinabe law, was born out of the determination of dynamic young women and men to contribute to the development of women in all areas: legal, socio-economic and cultural. Convinced that women's development depends on their resilience, their capacity to defend their interests and overcome challenges, IPBF focuses its interventions on the development of women's leadership, especially among young women and girls. With this in mind, the Initiative carries out outreach work - information, education and communication - aimed at young women and girls so that they are better able to take ownership of their life and enjoy the rights they are entitled to. This is combined with advocacy actions towards public, traditional and religious authorities so that more attention is given to issues inherent to women's development.
Our mission is to promote inclusive feminism and develop the resilience of young women and girls for their holistic wellbeing.
Our vision is to become a reference in feminist organizing in favor of women and girls’ wellbeing and leadership development.
