Burkina Faso


Convinced that, without education, no economic, social, health or political progress is possible, the International solidarity organization, Action Education through the education has been contributing since more than 35 years to improve the access and the quality of the education for millions of children and adults. Established in Burkina Faso since 2001, their operations revolve around three key areas : access and quality of education, education for women and girls, and education in hygiene and the environment.

Project supported: Enhancement of a school canteen in Obdaga, Burkina Faso. The aim is to improve the diet of the pupils at the school in Obdaga, by improving meal preparation and conditions.

Within the scope of the “ Village Programme ” conducted by Fondation Orange, Action Education is implementing a project in support of school enrolment and health development in the village of Obdaga, Burkina Faso: a health centre, water supply and school are going to be built for the start of the 2019 academic year.

The Bel Foundation decided to be part of this project in order to address the issue of nutrition for pupils at the Obdaga school, as this is a key factor in academic success. The Bel Foundation’s support for Action Education will help to renovate and fit out the school kitchens, build a refectory, train the canteen staff in better management and create a vegetable garden.

Social impact: 236 primary school pupils will benefit from the project.
