Plan International Burkina Faso started operating in 1976 and works in the most vulnerable areas of the country.
Since then we have led projects on education, health, water and sanitation, economic empowerment and protection and have become one of the most prominent children’s rights organisations in the country.
We advocate with girls to influence the government and other stakeholders so girls in Burkina Faso are able to learn, lead, decide and thrive.
Our current programmatic priorities include:
- Inclusive, quality education
- Youth employment
- Preventing teenage pregnancy
- Sexual and reproductive health.
Savings groups help girls stay in school
In Burkina Faso, Plan International’s savings groups have inspired children to save money so they are able to pay for their own education.
