EDUCO in Burkina Faso
Educo has been working in Burkina Faso since 2014, with our programs focused on the protection, education, and participation of boys and girls.
In recent years, children and families have been forced to leave their homes and seek refuge in other parts of the country, or in neighboring countries, due to an increase in conflict and attacks by jihadist groups. Educo has been involved in dialogue and conflict resolution in the two provinces most affected by the security crisis in the north.
Educo's programs also include facilitating women's groups to generate better incomes, supporting families in the birth registration process, and continuing efforts to prevent exploitative child labor, and upholding the rights of mining workers.
