Happy Easter from Tioung Nonma!
After a lovely Easter bank holiday weekend, the Tigoung Nonma team have been very busy in their second week on placement. Alongside meetings, emailing potential UK partners, research, working on the inventory and leaflet production, the team also spent Wednesday assisting the TN catering service in delivering a coffee and lunch break at a conference held by the National Federation of Artisans in Burkina Faso (FENABF). The subject of the conference was the organisation of this year’s SIAO festival, a huge, pan-African arts festival which attracts visitors from all over the world.
The Tigoung Nonma catering service (Service Traiteur) was launched in 2009 as an income-generating activity for members of TN. It supports women with disabilities, some of whom are also artisans.

The food received a very good reception, with many people at the event thanking the team for their hard work. The success of the service provided was evident when TN received a second order to provide food on Friday, prompting another day of cooking and preparation (and delicious smells in the office!)
We hope that these events will boost awareness of our wonderful catering service: if anyone in or around Ouagadougou would like us to provide food and drink for your event, please get in touch!
