Here is a short summary of all the activities for the last 3 months! 

Fruit trees
We have planted 64 fruit trees which are protected by branches. Each of the trees is under the responsibility of 3 students. The trees are: mango, orange, pomegranate, lime, sugar apple.

Protection for the fruit trees is also a place to dry the boots...

Results
Results of the first quarter are rather good. It is very encouraging especially for the class CAP4 which will pass a state exam in June. With help of excel I had prepared some analysis of the results so that we can see what we can do to help students who are behind.

Below, Macaire (vice director and agronomy teacher) announces the results of the mock exam for the 4th year. Teachers were happy with the results, students a bit disappointed. 56% got the exam without a second round and only one did not get the points to have a second chance.

Remarks from visitors: children at the LAP are only busy with studies. Their study method is not the best and there is not enough time for "play". We will look at this seriously.

New constructions at the LAP
The sport platform is finally ready for some game of volley ball. We are also building new dormitories.

The 2 new buildings will be able to take 72 new students as of April 1st. Many new buildings are coming out of the ground: nurse post, building for the grinding mill, dormitories.

We have a lot of difficulties with stray cows, goats, donkeys. We have started to fence the LAP with barbed wire. The perimeter of the LAP is almost 3 km!!

Payment of the tuitions from the parents
Parents have to pay 50 euro in cash and 250kg of corn. Last year we did not check the quality and the volume delivered. This year each bag is checked and since we do not have yet a storage place for this corn and we are using the girls' refectory.

blog 2015-02-16 12

We have to check both the quality and the volume delivered. Some parents are sending bags with good corn on the top and bad one at the bottom. Some send last year corn which is full of insects. We are using 4 of the bags per week as part of the food for the 214 students.

Fun at the LAP
Yvonne and Sandra have also brought some material to play games with the students. This was very much appreciated by the children!

Hervé, the founder of ASAP, has been in Burkina Faso for two months. In his weekly blog he writes about everything that is going on with the projects and the country. We have made a summary of all the news about the LAP. There are stories, pictures and even a short video: A day at the LAP. You can read the full blogs of Herve on the website.

A day at the LAP

Rokia gives us a peek of her life at the LAP. She tells about her school schedule, shows us her dormitory and more. You can watch this video on our YouTube channel: watch video: A day at the LAP.

School has started

The new school year at the LAP has started. There are now 223 students there. 47 among them will be in their 4th year and will pass a national exam called BEPC. Those who get this exam can keep on studying if they wish to.

All the girls are accommodated in their foyer. We have been able to open the boys' foyer which, as for now, can take 37 students. All the last year students (girls and boys) are in the foyers which gives them the best conditions for studying.

Read the full news report on our website!

Thank you for all your support!

Last year was a success for our agricultural school in Burkina Faso! Almost all our students will proceed to next year and we have built a lot more facilities for our students!  Our goal is to offer quality education to children coming from poor families and an education which helps identify and develop the strength of the students.

We released a Activity report of 2013-2014, see attached files!

In September 70 new students will enroll in the LAP ( “Lycee Agricole Prive”) and not all the children have a scholarship yet. Can you help us find sponsors or donate yourself? Your help is very much appreciated!

New sponsors can donate via GlobalGiving.com or “adopt” a child by sending us an email (info@asap-foundation.org). You will get special updates about his/her progress! We will send general news about the school and every trimester a report.

Girls’ foyer

In March 2013 we have opened the girls’ foyer. This enables the girls to have a better and more safe environment.

A lot of the students come from villages far from the school. The parents have to find tutors in the nearby villages. This is not easy and often the conditions in which the students leaves are very poor: problem with food and too much promiscuity.

The girls foyers has already given some results: better hygiene for the girls (we have to stop them taking showers!) and better academic results.

Boys’ foyer

Thanks to generous donors we have been able to start the construction of the foyer for the boys. We are far from completion and every donation for this project is welcome. 

We should be able to take around 25 boys in the foyer for the school year 2014-2015.
