Awa one of the refugee student
In Burkina there are over 1 million refugees coming mainly from Mali.
Due to the terrorist attacks at the borders with Mali and Niger there are also over a million of displaced people.
All the children involved have difficulties or no access to education.
In Burkina it is estimated that a children from a refugees family will have half the chance of a burkinabé children to attend primary school. For secondary school it is the third.
Basically 1 out 3 refugee children attend primary school and only 1 out 6 to attend secondary school. When you know that the success rate in secondary school after 4 years is 30% and less than 10 % after 7 years. Only 1 or 2 children out of 1.000 from refugees family will have the chance to go to university.
At the LAP, based on our past success ratio, we expect that 60% of the students will complete their secondary school. This gives them access to university, but also to look for employment or to start their own business thanks to the education they are receiving.
Those succesfull children will be examples for others.
We thank you for your support and hope that you have the same level of motivation for this project that we have.
Communication to your network is very important to have more supporters.
