Burkina Faso

SUPPORT TO THE POPULATION DISPLACED BY THE CONFLICT, EDUCATIONAL, SANITARY AND NUTRITION TO THE CHILDREN

Context

In the heart of Burkina Faso, in the province of Oubritenga, Guié region, eleven villages (11.000 people) have united to take charge of their development, in order to fight against desertification by all means. They created the association Zoramb Naagtaabaa. This Burkinabe association is led by a Frenchman, Henri Girard, who for 31 years has been carrying out agricultural, health and educational projects alongside this population. In 2018, 60% of the population was illiterate (89% in 1991).

The Burkinabé association develops the education of the children of this province by supporting public schools, building schools, colleges and high schools, adult training, school sponsorship, literacy courses and the creation of libraries. Since 2002, Mission Enfance has built and rehabilitated 6 schools equipped with wells and teachers' houses, but also a nursery to welcome abandoned or orphaned babies, as well as a training centre for nurses to take care of these children. Mission Enfance annually sends containers and participates in the functioning of the AZN. Finally, we are going to continue the construction of the dispensary of Goema, another place of implantation of the AZN in Burkina Faso, in the North Centre, but also participate in the stabilization of the displaced persons of the conflict, by an access to water and agriculture in 11 villages of Pissila, Kaya and Boussouma (16 boreholes).

Mission Enfance supports AZN's agricultural projects through the creation of agricultural perimeters in Filly. In these villages, the objective is to ensure the food self-sufficiency of the villagers of the region, by a better water management in the perimeters created for this purpose.

With the year 2020 having fewer terrorist attacks to deplore in Burkina Faso, our projects are continuing without too much hindrance.

 

Goal

  • Improve the education of Burkinabe children,
  • Provide food self-sufficiency to the population,
  • Support the displaced populations of the Centre-North,
  • Provide access to health care for the isolated populations of Goéma
