COVID-19: women as agents of change for education

In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 500, mostly illiterate, women have saved, with the support of Aide et Action, more than 3,000 marginalized and vulnerable children from dropping out of school.

Women’s entrepreneurship in Laos – three French women entrepreneurs lend their support!

Three French women entrepreneurs, Carole Gaillard, Lauranie Nonotte and Sylvie Combe, have made a commitment to promote an entrepreneurship program developed by Aide et Action for girls and women from ethnic minorities in Laos. They told Aide et Action, “We are proud to be part of the Education for Women Now Campaign Committee and to support this project for women entrepreneurs in Laos”.

Young mothers: finding hope again thanks to our trainings

Burkina Faso: Helping Vulnerable Girls Find their Way Back to School

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

Socio-professional training: the key to women’s empowerment

To enable women to become autonomous and take decisions within their households, Aide et Action 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.

Ensuring girls’ education by acting now

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.
