Burkina Faso: Helping vulnerable girls get back to school

In Burkina Faso, socio-cultural barriers slow down girls’ access to education. Through the “Scolarisation des Filles” (SCOLFILLE) project, Action Education and L’OCCITANE Foundation are enabling 1,872 girls aged 9 to 13 to go back to school.

Act now to ensure girls’ education

Adolescence remains a particularly difficult time for millions of girls. Once they start menstruating, the door to childhood and innocence closes. How can they continue to go to school with blood loss, without access to a toilet and without a sanitary napkin? This seems inconceivable in the 21st century, yet it is the daily life of millions of young girls. It is a daily life that has consequences, as it leads to absenteeism and early school leaving.

Socio-professional training: the key to female empowerment

To enable women to become autonomous and take decisions within their households, Action Education promotes their emancipation by offering them technical training and psycho-social support. More than 400 women will be trained in Burkina Faso within the framework of the Forself project, which is now being carried out with the support of the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie.

Young mothers: hope regained thanks to our training

On the occasion of the International Women’s Rights Day (8 March), Action Education is giving a voice to three young mothers who have dropped out of school. In Madagascar, they talk about the socio-professional training they are following with Action Education.
