Introduction / History

The Dogoso, or Black Dogose, are one of the many small ethnic groups of southwestern Burkina Faso. The 13 villages of their homeland form two pockets separated by the red Dogose which extend into Cote D'Ivoire.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Dogose are subsistence farmers, growing the usual millet, sorghum, maize, and peanuts. They are best known for the high quality of their yams. Yams serve as an important cash crop. Living in the country's southwest region, the Dogoso generally do not have water shortage problems; they receive some 40 inches of rain annually.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Dogoso people practice traditional religion, worshipping spirits that they believe will help them in their daily lives. These same spirits harm them for eternity.


What Are Their Needs?

While the Dogoso are financially well-off when compared with most other West African people groups, they nonetheless have areas of need. None of their villages have health care facilities; a sick person must travel many miles to a clinic. A second concern is the lack of primary schools.


Prayer Points

Pray for good medical clinics and schools for Dogoso villages.
Pray for the Lord to grant the Dogoso people an abundant harvest this year as proof of his power and mercy.
Pray for a harvest of souls among the Dogoso people that will spread throughout Burkina Faso and bless their community spiritually.
Pray for workers to go to the Dogoso people of Burkina Faso.
Pray for a movement to Christ among the Dogoso people this decade.
