It is better to light a candle
than to curse the darkness

We are always searching for new approaches and methods to stimulate intelligence, resourcefulness and creativity, encouraging participation and closely following the evolution of sustainable projects. We work towards the empowerment of rural communities and of women, through awareness and training programs. 

Our projects have included education, health, agriculture, civil society, productive activities, long distance adoptionsport.

Fitil is a non-profit organization founded in Rome in 2005.  Its name means 'small light' in Mooré, the language of the Mossi of Burkina Faso. Our main areas of intervention are the rural communities of this country.

The activity in Rome is run by volunteers, who work closely with members of ACLEM - Action pour un Lendemain Meilleur - a local association in charge of following the projects and keeping in contact with the villages, where we form and train local committees. These act as a liason between the population and our local staff, and participate to our work by proposing and monitoring projects.  read more...
