Funded project

Access to education and drinking water to Kiri's population

Burkina Faso

In Burkina Faso, although the rate of primary school enrollment has increased in recent years, the quality of public education is quite poor. There is a shortage of educational structures, and existing ones are overcrowded, with more than 100 students per classroom. For girls the situation is even more difficult because they are forced to stay home to take care of the toughest chores and their families do not allow their schooling.

Kiri was a village located about ten kilometers northwest of the city of Bobo-Dioulasso. This town has been affected by the recent extensions of the city of Bobo-Dioulasso. Currently the land is dividing, its population increases and its physiognomy changes. The population is classified as peasants, small merchants, artisans, workers and officials. The increase in the population of Kiri unfortunately has not been accompanied by an educational provision, which is below real needs. This situation leads to low school performance, high dropout rates and juvenile delinquency.

To remedy this situation, has been built three classrooms and its planned to built three more and meeting rooms. Moreover, a pump will be installed in the school to provide water to 430 students and the whole population of Kiri.


  • Construction of three classrooms
  • Construction of a water well

Who will benefit?

The number of direct beneficiaries are 430 students and the water pump is expected to benefit 1720 people.
