Fondacio in Côte d'Ivoire since 2001

Our mission is to be "presence" and "accompaniment" to young people

Origin of the mission in the country

Bouaké in the centre of the country is the place where the community first appears in 2001. 

The community was born from the meeting of four young people (Christophe, Valerie, Michel and Aymar) who in 1999 participated in a Forum in Togoville (Togo). The year 2001 saw the first steps that put these young people on the path in Bouaké. 

Fondacio in Côte d'Ivoire is present in two regions with two young communities still on the road to autonomy. The country does not yet have a country council and a pastoral assembly. A pastoral team coordinates the activities.

Fondacio Côte d'Ivoire

I spent beautiful years in responsibility at Fondacio who taught me how wonderful it is to serve when the other finds the joy of meeting the true source of his life. Helping others to cross over to the other side: such was sometimes this mission where I learned to brave the fear of the unknown in the adventure where Christ was waiting for me.

IFF Africa wants to be a "revealer of talents" for the service of a more humane world. 

Economical context

Ivory Coast, which has strong economic strengths, is considered a subregional power. It has infrastructures inherited from the two decades of the "Ivorian miracle" (1960-1980): second largest port of sub-Saharan Africa, important road network, recently expanded international airport.

In the agricultural sector, the country is the largest cocoa producer in the world with more than 35% of the market. It ranks first in Africa for several other agricultural export crops (rubber, cashew, cotton, coffee, oil palm, banana, pineapple, cola). The secondary sector is dominated by crude oil refining, construction and agri-food processing.

The tertiary sector (47% of GDP) is strongly dominated by banking, transport, distribution and ICT, including mobile telephony (5 operators). The country ensures its energy self-sufficiency thanks to the recent exploitation of gas and oil deposits; they allowed him to export electricity and petroleum products to the sub-region.

With an average growth of 8.6% per year since 2012, Ivory Coast aims to become an emerging economy in 2020. The National Development Program (NDP) for the period 2016-2020 provides for major reforms. to stimulate sustained growth, driven by the private sector, and structurally transform the economy.

Despite the efforts of the Ivorian authorities unanimously welcomed by the international financial community, the fiscal situation deteriorated in 2017 as a result of the lower cocoa price and the demand movements which led to a decrease in revenue.

On the other hand, Ivory Coast still faces many challenges, particularly in the fight against corruption and the improvement of the business environment, to fully regain its status as a driver of regional economic growth. Better redistribution of growth is also necessary for the sustainable improvement of development indices.
