After 40 years of writing Hervé Millet visited his correspondence friend Jean Millogo in Burkina Faso in February 1997. During a visit to Jeans home village Fina, Hervé arranged the construction of a small clinic. If build by the villagers the Burkinabeese Government agreed to provide a nurse. Such a clinic was desperately needed and a long cherished wish of the inhabitants of Fina.

Upon his return to the Netherlands Hervé collected funds and returned to Burkina Faso to start the construction of the clinic in September of that same year.

Inspired by the success of this first project Hervé and his wife decided to realize more projects. And thus The ASAP Foundation, Association for Small African Projects, was born in December 1997.

Since its founding, dozens of projects in Burkina Faso were started and completed successfully. The projects are all different but contribute to the sustainable development of health, education, living conditions and income of the villagers in Burkina Faso. There are many examples of projects such as construction of schools and water wells, the issue of micro-credits and much more.

Since 2006 ASAP has the CBF quality mark. Currently, the Foundation has about 25 active projects. It is our objective, with your help, to make these projects very successful. Read more.
