With UNHCR, we promote access to education for refugees in Burkina Faso   

Several young students work in a classroom.

Given the unprecedented phenomenon of forced migration in Burkina Faso, which threatens the continuity of education for the youngest children, we signed a partnership agreement with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in 2023. This partnership has enabled us to build schools in the refugee settlements of Dori and Bobo Dioulasso, two cities in Burkina Fasso, and to deploy our Foundation’s Digital Schools program.    

2,700 displaced pupils have benefited from educational activities made possible by the program’s kit, which includes a mini educational content server connected to 25 tablets, a laptop PC, a video projector, a Bluetooth speaker and numerous accessories. This initiative has also enabled a further 5,860 refugees, displaced persons and members of host communities to gain easier access to digital equipment at the Dori and Bobo Dioulasso sites. Thanks to this partnership, we are helping to build a better future for displaced people.
