Managré Nooma

The Good is never lost

In 1995 Katrin Rohde, known in Africa as Mama Tenga, sold her bookshops in Germany and moved to Burkina Faso in West Africa to open a home for orphans and street children. She named it AMPO – Association Managré Nooma pour la protection des orphelins (Managré Nooma Association for the protection of orphans). Managré nooma is a term in Moré, one of the official languages of Burkina Faso, and it means “The good is never lost”. Katrin Rohde and her staff have been living and working according to this principle in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, for more than 20 years.

"An adventurous and fateful journey to West Africa made Katrin Rohde sell everything she owned in Germany and settle permanently in Burkina Faso. She gives a graphic report of how she began to take care of street
children leading pitiful lives marked by hunger, drugs and crime in the capital city of Ouagadougou."
