Most associations are very small and localized. In a phenomenon that Antoine Sawadogo has neatly called the “bureaucratization of the village” (cited in Naudet, 1998), a multitude of village associations have formed. The number of these associations is impressive, estimated well into the thousands for each country in the region. They are built on longstanding traditions of community solidarity, but also increasingly on the possibility of external support (Gueneau and Lecomte, 1998). Donors want to reach these associations directly with aid, rather than go through state agents.
