The focus of ÖJAB´s development cooperation is on Burkina Faso (West Africa) and on the technical vocational training. In the capital Ouagadougou ÖJAB has a representative office and engages in different projects improving the living conditions of local people. This is financed by grants, partners and donations collected in Austria („Ouagadougou street kids“).
ÖJAB has been continuously involved in development cooperation for Burkina Faso since 1961, founded a technical-commercial school in 1970 there and was a pioneer of Austrian development cooperation for this country.
ÖJAB shares office with the honorary consulate for Burkina Faso in Vienna.
The consulate for Burkina Faso (since 1966) as well as the headquarters of the Austrian-Burkinabe Society are located in an office community with ÖJAB Head office.
