Project Report | Aug 3, 2020
Hounde multimedia center restarts for training

Libraries and most other public activities in Burkina Faso were closed due to COVID19, in late March 2020. The government in July decided to start reopening, and the office of the mayor of Houndé decided to permit activities to resume. Officially, the pandemic has largely spared Burkina Faso, with only a few thousand cases, total, as of late July. It is impossible to know at present how accurate the official case tallies are.

FAVL-Burkina Faso, in consultation with local authorities, decided to reopen activities of the multi-media center in Houndé (CMH) in mid-July. Schools remains closed until October. The CMH hosted some small afternoon workshops for young women interested in producing books, and also distributed books to several libraries in northern Burkina Faso, urging readers (and especially young women) to write their own books.

Thanks for your support for the mobile library over the years!
