Our actions in Burkina Faso
Burkina Faso, located in the heart of West Africa, faces major issues in terms of education and child protection. In several districts of the Center North, thousands of children, especially girls, are exposed to the risk of exploitation and violence. Terre des Hommes Switzerland strives to ensure their protection, strengthen their knowledge and skills on their rights and non-violence, while improving their access to quality education. At the same time, measures are being put in place to support families and schools in their fight against violence against children. These efforts aim not only to keep these children in the school system, but also to build their resilience to the challenges they face.
