About Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso is a landlocked country in the Sahel. It is home to 81 People Groups, 27 of whom are considered unreached by the Joshua Project. The official language is French but Moore and Jula are the two languages primarily used. The Mossi/Moore people are thought to be descended from the marriage of a Mamprusi princess and Mande hunter. Jula is also the name of the second largest People Group in the country; the Jula of Burkina Faso primarily live along the trade routes in the southwestern part of the country. The name dyula means "itinerant trader," and the Jula (Dyula) are respected for their trading abilities. Most Jula are Sunni Muslims with the remainder possessing Animist beliefs. Evangelical groups are growing but the hold of pre-Christian religions is strong upon the people, even among professing Christians.

Christian Aid supports indigenous missionaries who seek to spread the Gospel among the rural villages of Burkina Faso.
