Christelle Kalhoulé
Country Director

Christelle returned to Christian Children’s Fund of Canada in May 2018 as Country Director after previously serving as our Sponsorship Manager for more than five years.

She’s also held senior leadership roles with two international organizations working in Burkina Faso – Counterpart International (building leaders, organizations and social-sector networks) and Winrock International (empowering the disadvantaged, increasing economic opportunity and sustaining natural resources).

Christelle brings excellent knowledge of Burkina Faso, key stakeholders in the development scene, the non-governmental agency sector as well as the donor community. Her areas of interest are child protection, education, sustainable livelihood development, new business development as well as building strong collaborations.

In her spare time, Christelle spends time discovering nature and working on her cashew farm, two hours outside of Ouagadougou.
