Education is the key to empowerment

Burkina Faso government representatives meet with CCFC to discuss areas for collaboration

By Patrice Zongo | communications manager, Burkina Faso

OUAGADOUGOU, Burkina Faso — During a recent visit to Burkina Faso, Jim Carrie, V.P. of global operations at Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC), visited the Ministry of National Education to strengthen our collaboration with the newly elected government.

Education and children are important areas of development since nearly 47 percent of the more than 18-million people living in Burkina Faso are under the age of 15. It’s why CCFC makes approximately 40 percent of its investments in the country to that sector.

“It is a privilege to continue supporting the government of Burkina Faso in its efforts to educate children as much as we can. As a child-centred organization, what’s a better way to protect children than investing in their education?” Carrie asked Diabouga Paul, secretary general of the Ministry of National Education and Literacy training.

“It is obvious education is the key for change,” agreed the secretary general. “It can create the conditions of equity and real development. This is why investing in education is important for us.”

In 2015, CCFC supplied equipment to three primary schools and built one early childhood development centre (ECD), working cooperatively with the government of Burkina. CCFC is also working to scale up its Learning-Through-Play approach to educating parents about how to nurture their children’s development. “More effort should be dedicated to early childhood development,” confirmed Diabouga. “CCFC has been investing in children’s [early years], and this has a positive influence on the whole education process.”

 

Meeting of minds: (l to r) Jim Carrie, V.P. of global operations for CCFC, Diabouga Paul, secretary general of the Ministry of National Education and Literacy training in Burkina Faso and Jeremie Ouangrawa, country director of Burkina Faso for CCFC, see the impact of education on a child’s and community’s development
