In order to participate in TechSoup Burkina Faso programs and services, an organization must be validated by TechSoup as an organization operating on a nonprofit basis for the public benefit.

In order to successfully complete the validation review in Burkina Faso, an organization must be:

  • Organizations must be associations (associations) (commonly known as Organisations Non Gouvernementales – ONG) registered with the Ministry of Territorial Administration (MATD), including public utility associations (associations reconnues d’utilité publique – ARUP) recognized by the Council of Ministers and foreign associations authorized by MATD.

In order for TechSoup to validate your organization, you will need to provide sufficient evidence that your organization holds the above status. This may include a certificate of registration or incorporation, inclusion in an official government registry or database, and/or a copy of your organization’s governing documents.

To initiate the validation review process, the organization should register on this website and provide all requested information. A designated TechSoup representative will review the provided details and determine if the registered organization meets the requirements established in the localized definition.

Please note that validated organizations are also subject to any additional eligibility criteria required by specific programs or service offerings being applied for.
