In March, the government decided to close all schools dur to the coronavirus.

All the students of the LAP went home. Home for the students are villages which can be up to 120 km from the LAP. Also all the main roads were closed.

In order to keep the students busy, we have sent them weekly exercices which were collected and corrected. With the extension of the closing of the schools, we then send teachers to the villages to work with the students who are in an exam year. This surprised the parents and helped motivated the students.

The exam year (4th and 6th year) came back to the LAP on June 1st. The other years cam back 2 weeks later even if the government did not open them. We beleive taht it was needed to get back for a few weeks before the long 2,5 months vacation.

The return to the lAP was done respecting all the recommended precaution: measure of temperature, washing hands, wearing mask and keeping distances.

The state exam will start on July 14th. We are not too sure what to expect with this incomplete study year.

We are already thinking about the new school year which will start September 15th. For this new school year we are looking at the possibility to integrate a few students from refugees families in coordination with the UNHCR from Burkina.

Thank you for your support, stay safe.

At the beginning of the year, some staff have registered the LAP to participate to an athletism competition between secondary schools.

At the LAP, the students who wanted to participate started training and a selection was made based on minimum time per type of race and age category.

Next 11 of them (6 boys and 5 girls) came to Bobo Dioulasso for the selection at the province level. The LAP is a boarding school in the middle of nowhere. Students have very few occasions to come to the city.

Out of the 11, 8 (6 boys and 2 girls) qualified for the next level which be at Regional level mid March. The stress to be competing on a strange setting was too strong for some of the girls.

The final step will be to go to Ouagadougou (capital city) where there will be competing in a big stadium if some of our students qualify.

Tisi experience will be very benefic for those students.

We believe that we will get a lot students for next year try out since a lot of students did not understand some the advantages of theis activity but only saw teh pain of the training.

We will keep you informed of the resuklts of our students.

Thank you for your support and keep communicating in your network about the LAP.

This school year there are 140 girls and 131 boys at the LAP. Below the number of students per year.

Second year   24   22    46
Third year       27   19    46
Fourth year     32   22    54

This school year the 4th year will try to pass the national exam "BEPC". This exam gives them the possibility to keep studying if they wish. Alaos the Sixth year will pass a mational exam called BEP Agricole. The BEP agriocle allows the students to finish their agricultural secondary school. 

All the teachers are in place and the first evaluation of the students has been done last week. Results will be known end of this week.

Beginning of November the hens have produced their first eggs. 

We are very pleased with the beginning of this school year and hope that the security situation in Burkina Faso will improved. We are not in a sensitive area but everybody is affected by the difficult situation facing the country.

We are always looking for more funding and we have asked you to promote the LAP in your network.

It is a fantastic project and it needs your implication.

Thank you for everything you have done and will do.

The students and personnel of the LAP wish you a safe and happy new year.

Another school year will begin on September 15th.

This year an total of 6 levels will be opened. When complete there will be 8 levels.

The fourth year will be attending to get the "BEPC" exam and the sixth year will be attending to pass the "BEP agricole" exam.

We expect to have 278 students all fully boarded(143 girls and 135 boys).

During the school vacation the studenst of teh 5th year had to make a training of 2and half months. Some did it at the our farms some did it at the LAP.

Those at the LAP helped installed an orchard equipped with adrip irrigation system. The trees planted were lemon, lime trees, pinapples, kola and avocado trees.

The website of the LAP has been renewed, please go to: asaplap.org 

In order accomodate students, 2 new dormitories have been built as one new class room.

In year the number of students increases andwe need more funds to run the LAP.

There is possibility for you to run mini fundraising campaign via Global Giving to communicate with your network about the LAP. Let us know if you want to start such mini campaign and we will guide you through it.

The students of the LAP thank you for your support.

Another school year is ending. 

From the 233 students at the school, 40 from the 4th year went through the national exam called BEPC. This exam is needed in order to further studies in secondary school.

The results are encouraging with 29 out of 40 passing the exam (72.5%). This is particularly positif when local schools got only12 % success.

At the end of the year it is also the analysis of the results of each students to see if they can pass in the next year.

First year: 1 boy did not make it.

Second year: 1 boy and 4 girls did not make it

Third year: 1 boy and 6 girls did not make it

Fourth year: 4 boys were exluded

Fifth year: 1 boy was excluded

Age of the 270 students attending the school in 2019-2020 will go from 12 years to 22 years old. The LAP being a boarding school, the challenge will be the control / keep busy all those students.

We thank you all for your continuous support and hope that you can promote this project among your friends and family.

For information on July 19th, donation can be doubled by GlobalGiving.
