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 desertification by all means. They created the Zoramb Naagtaabaa association. This Burkinabe association is led by a Frenchman, Henri Girard, who for 30 years has been working alongside this population on agricultural, educational and health projects. In 1991, 89% of the population was illiterate. The Burkinabé association develops the education of the children of this province by supporting public schools, training adults, school sponsorship, literacy classes and the creation of libraries. Since 2002, Mission Enfance has built and rehabilitated 6 schools equipped with wells and teachers' housing, 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, but also participate in the stabilisation of those displaced by the conflict, by providing access to water and agriculture in 11 villages of Pissila, Kaya and Boussouma (16 drillings).

 

Goal

Mission Enfance supports the agricultural projects of the AZN by the creation of agricultural perimeters in Filly. In these villages, the goal is to ensure food self-sufficiency for the villagers of the region, by a better water management in the perimeters created for this purpose. We will provide an incinerator to the maternity hospital in Filly, finalize the construction of a nurse's housing, and supply solar panels to the dispensary.
