In 1996, Ten Thousand Villages began purchasing handmade crafts from artisans in Burkina Faso, with the assistance and coordination of master artisan Sissao Hamidou. In the years following, MCC Burkina Faso, a relief, development and peace agency of the North American Mennonite and Brethren in Christ churches, played a central role in purchases from these artisans by transferring payments and assisting the group.

By 2013, the artisan group organized itself into a more formal entity called “Atelier de Formation et de Promotion des Artisans.” Mr. Hamidou continues to manage Ten Thousand Villages’ orders for this group and the artisans are the same individuals we have been purchasing from for over a decade. With the group’s advances, Ten Thousand Villages began writing orders directly to this association.
