EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Burkina Faso: in activity
Niger: Project completed in 2014

The Foundation is seen as a positive advocate for the development of youth and sporting activities at school.

The Foundation has been supporting sporting activities since 2010 in five CEBs (basic education district) in the final of the OSEP tournament. Note that the OSEP tournament is a primary school event held nationally throughout Burkina Faso, and that the inter CEB final is followed by inter-provincial competitions and inter-regional matches. In 2011-2012, the SEMAFO Foundation extended its support of sports and cultural activities to 5 CEGs located in its area of interest. In 2016, we began supporting 1 CEB from the Est region.

As our focus lies on the notion of cultural and sporting exchanges, we have become involved in the inter-collegial tournament through the distribution of jerseys, sporting goods and the hands-on organization of events.
