Currently a teacher of philosophy at the Lycée Nelson Mandela in Ouagadougou, Samuel has been teaching since 1994. In 1997, together with a colleague from the Lycée Louis-Vincent de Metz (France), he co-initiated an educational partnership delivering a support programme at Yako Provincial College. His union experience has enabled Burkinabe teachers to achieve several gains through independent or joint struggle with other unions.
In 2011, Samuel Dembélé was named as Chevalier of the National Order of Merit to Burkina Faso for services rendered to the nation.
