“Sponsor a bicycle” (ONG Burkina Faso També) -Ended Colaboration-
Saaba is a town near Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso. In the local school, 2,100 children walk every day several kilometers to attend it. Many of these children spend several hours on the way to the school, failing to help their parents in small chores or caring for younger siblings. In these cases, school attendance is really fragile. For this reason, about 25% of dropouts occur.
With their project “Sponsor a bicycle”, the NGO Burkina Faso També’s ongo intends to facilitate the movement of children to school so that there will be no drop-outs because of mobility. In this way, Burkina Faso També aims to contribute to the training of children and young people as an alternative to illegal migration.
Petit Món has collaborated with Burkina Faso També on this project: we have bought and sponsored bicycles for the children of Saaba.
