Challenge

About 80 high achieving girls from subsistence farming families graduate from secondary school each year in northern Burkina Faso, assisted by the Lambs Support Girls' Education Project. The project will send a girl like Clementine or Rasmata (see photo) to state nursing training next year, enabling her to gain skills to have a positive and effective impact on her community.

Solution

The project will support the cost of a three-year state nursing training program for a qualified girl like Clementine and Rasmata (see photo) whose parents are subsistence farmers in northern Burkina Faso. Her education will enable her to gain productive employment and contribute to the health and education of her family and community and to the development of her country.

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.
