Post secondary Education for Girls in Burkina Faso



This project will provide scholarships to primary school teacher training for 40 village girls who have completed secondary school at the top of their class in northern Burkina Faso. Because their parents are subsistence farmers, these scholarships are the only source of funds these girls will have to enable them to further their studies in primary school teacher training.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Each year, approximately 80 high achieving girls from subsistence farming families graduate from secondary school in northern Burkina Faso with assistance of the Lambs Support Girls' Education Project. The purpose of this project is to offer training opportunities for a maximum number of these girls, thus expanding their capacities to have a positive and effective impact on their communities.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project will support the cost of primary school teacher training for 40 qualified girls whose parents are subsistence farmers in northern Burkina Faso. Their educations will enable them to gain productive employment in the education of future generations of children and at the same time enable the government to increase its response to the educational needs of very under-served rural communities. They will also serve as role models and leaders within their rural communities.

Potential Long Term Impact

Educating girls changes everything. When a girl in Burkina Faso receives an education, she marries later and has fewer children. When she earns an income, she reinvests it in her family, improving her children's health, education and well being, and she contributes to the development of her community and nation. When we invest in girls we all win! We empower the next generation to reach their potential as leaders committed to the growth and development of their countries.
