Education and training
Over the past decades, Burkina Faso has made major strides with respect to education, from 60% of children being out of school in early 2000 to 70% of children now enrolled in primary schools. However, the escalation of attacks and threats of violence against schools, pupils and teachers has forced 2,000 schools in Burkina Faso to shut down, according to UNICEF, thus leaving more than 2 million children without an education for the 2019-2020 school year.
Our education-focused activities are directly aligned with SDG #4 Quality education and SDG #5 Gender equality.
