Obituary

It’s with a heavy heart that Claire Kabore and family announced the passing of George Yamba Kabore. The sun rose on 30 June 1944 in Damsi, Burkina Faso and sadly set on 28 May 2022 in East Windsor, New Jersey after a valiant battle with prostate cancer.

After graduating from College De Lasalle High School in 1964, he went on to earn a License in Psychology from the University of Lyon Claude Bernard In France and a Master's Degree in Human Resources Management from the University of Bordeaux Talence (France) in 1975.

  

In 1981, Georges was recruited by the United Nations as a Human Resource Officer in charge of Germany, France, Japan and the Caribbean (St Lucia, St Kitts and Nevis), New York and Arusha, Tanzania kickstarting a lifelong career in Human Resource Management and Recruiting. His career led him to become a highly sought-after global consultant. Georges was passionate about his career and was a force in his field, often taking on assignments facilitating and negotiating Human Resources around the globe in Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. 

 

In 1972, Georges met the love of his life who stayed truly dedicated until his passing, Claire in Yako, Burkina Faso and they were married two years later. Georges and Claire have four children: Gerard, Leontine, Aristide and Yves-Eric, six wonderful and loving grandchildren (Sanclaire, Kiarra, Joshua, Amaya, Victoria and Avery). Family was incredibly important to Georges as he grew up away from his parents who sacrificed to send him to the city to live with his sister to attend school while they remained in the village of Damsi.  Georges was a dedicated father and husband who loved his family deeply. 

After retiring in 2004, Georges spent most of his time with his wife enjoying life with their children and grandchildren. A few years into retirement, with his passion for Human Resources and his lifelong commitment to serving the world, he was led to take on numerous consultancy appointments in Afghanistan, Tchad, Sudan and the International Tribunal for Rwanda.

 

With a passion for the African Diaspora, George served on many boards and associations: the association of Burkina Faso Nationals in the States of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, The Burkina Faso Embassies in Washington DC and New York; President of the Consortium of Entrepreneurs of the Diaspora for Economic and Commercial Promotion of Burkina Faso (CDIAPEC) which he co-founded and in 2021 Georges was appointed and installed as Honorary Consulate of Burkina Faso for the states of New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania by the President Of Burkina Faso.

The H in Human Resources was very important to Georges, he was a mentor, a coach, a philosopher, and a real humanitarian.

He loved his football/soccer for those of you who are on his Facebook, you know how much commentary he would have given us on the game with Real Madrid and Liverpool with a good glass of Merlot.

Georges was predeceased by his parents and is survived by his wife Claire; his children, grandchildren, global friends and colleagues at the United Nations across the globe.
