Throughout December, Bougeville Consulting will be collecting stationery items from hedge fund clients and contacts within the financial services industry.
This is part of the firm’s seasonal appeal, aiming to bring what it collects – pens, writing paper, old laptops etc – to a charitable association called Aide et Action, which supports Education in Burkina Faso.
Bougeville’s team will fly to Ouagadougou with the donations in January to see how they will be dispatched on the ground.
The firm has formed several partnerships in a bid to collect as many items of stationery as possible and has received generous advice and guidance from the Oxford African Studies Centre.
Two years ago, Bougeville ran a pilot project in Ethiopia which demonstrated the benefits that this initiative can bring to local people.
Anyone is welcome to donate. To do so, or to ask any questions, please contact Bougeville Consulting at [email protected]
The firm will be post updates on its facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bougeville-Consulting/153848831365684
