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. But the country is facing big challenges, in particular persistent insecurity in the Sahel region. 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.
