the 5 refugees children
The school year started on September 21 2020 at the LAP. Among the 63 new students 5 are coming from refugees families.
All the other 276 students of the school are coming from poor farmer families from 12 villages.
We were a bit worried about the integration of the 5 students (one girl and 4 boys). During the first week there was no lectures but only field works (harvest) and games. This unable students to know each other better and interact socially.
On the first evaluation the refugees children did very well, all on the top of the class. We believe that they see the LAP as a real opportunity. Students coming from villages are coming from poor families but did not go through the hardship of refugees.
UNHCR in Burkina Faso is helping for the logistic and the follow up of the children.
It will be interesting to find out the feedback of the parents after the hollyday of the first trimester.
GlobalGiving is having a "donors drive" between the 14 and 18 December. For a minimum of 4 recurring donations, GlobalGiving will double the first donation up to 200 us$.
Thank you for your support and if you feel that it is a good project, do not hesitate to communicate about it to your network.
We are taking this opportunity to wish you an happy and healthy 2021.
