Burkina Faso: Building a better future through education


Over the past decades, Burkina Faso has made impressive progress in education: from 60% of children out of school in the early 2000s to 70% of children now enrolled in primary school.

The Global Partnership for Education has supported Burkina Faso since 2003 and the GPE Board just approved a new US$33.8 grant to support enrollments in the regions most affected by the violence.
