Parents support their daughters' education

As reported recently, the student population at the College Modern de l'Amitie (girls' middle school) is doubling next year and is planned to go up by at least 1/3 the following year. The population of rural girls entering primary school with our support is going up by 1/3 next year as well. As our Burkinabe colleagues have recently informed us " La machine de l’education des filles est lancée. Les parents perçoivent de plus en plus le bien fondé de l’éducation des filles, ce qui fait que NEEED est de plus en plus sollicité." (The idea of girls education has taken off. Parents perceive more and more the importance of educating girls, which means that NEEED is increasingly solicited ..." by village leaders and parents requesting assistance to help give their daughters an opportunity to go to school.)

With your help, Friends of Burkina Faso will cover the cost of the school lunch program for the middle school for the next two years. We are working towards raising $42,000 to cover the cost of the school lunch program for this school year. Thank you for your support.
