“What makes transformation possible here, is the commitment to Christ and their students.”

The Need

48% of Primary School-Aged Children Are Out of School
Situated in West Africa, Burkina Faso is home to over 20 million Burkinabés.

It’s estimated 72% of young adults have not completed primary schooling. About 1% have achieved a post-secondary degree.

Burkina Faso ranks in the lowest percentiles for literacy compared to other low- to middle-income countries.

Continued armed conflict and displacement exhaust the education system and others like healthcare and food security.
