Burkinabéduc': Give a chance to the youth of Burkina Faso to change the world

This is the story of a project initiated in November 2018 by four students of the University Aix Marseille, France after a meeting with a primary school teacher in Burkina Faso:


Georges Tapsoba, a primary school teacher for 18 years is a very respected figure by the local community in the south of Burkina Faso. Today, he is President of parents of students' association in the Center School of Dagouma and Toece and he is also in charge of the Departement of the Primary Education in the District. In fact, Georges Tapsoba has dedicated his entire life to improve the condition of living of his students in more than 42 establishments in the South-center region of the country. But today, Georges needs our help!

 


 

The most important: the school supplies
In 2019, Dagouma school is composed by 252 girls and 258 boys and Toece school is composed by 371 girls and 373 boys. They are the two main schools in the region that need our help. The students from 5 to 13, distributed in 9 different grades form determinated groups for studying.

Every day, the young students walk a very long way from their house to the closest school where their meet other students and teachers, all ready to start the classes. They have to share books and scholar supplies because there are not enough supplies for every one. Profesors use blackboards and chalks and they don’t have other ways to teach the lessons.

The school canteen opens only twice a week because the government doesn’t have the financial resources to provide a five days food plan. When they cannot sit together to enjoy a meal, students and teachers must bring their own food, but sometimes, it can be an issue for some of them.

At midday, clase continues but outdoor because the temperature inside the classrooms can be untenable. Under the shadows of the trees, the students work in pairs to resolve their mathematic and geometry problems, meanwhile, the teacher walks around to help them with explainations.

With your money, teachers could be able to buy scholar supplies and distribute it to their students, so each student can use his own exercice book, and bring it at home to review the lessons of the day with his family.

Award the students with cultural and sport activities

Moreover, the President of the C.E.B. (Center of Education in Primary School), Georges Tapsoba, has a second objective in his list : organize a day of Culture and Sport for students, families and teachers to unite the community and reward the best learners of the year with medals and gifts. Student’s parents and teachers will participate together in cultural activities and football tournament under the coordination of the local football team.

In order to make this day a memorable experience, tables, benches, foods and other accessories for cooking need to be buyed. Water pumps require repairs to provide water for all on this day where temperatures would probably reach a heat record.

Some parents of students have dedicated time and money to join the cause… but they need our help now !

Allocation of funds

The project is composed of 3 parts :

1) Scholar supplies

50% of the money collected will help buy scholar supplies for the young students of the Dagouma and Toece schools in the south of Burkina Faso : exercice books, pens, pencils, boards, chalks, cissors, glues, geometry instruments…

- Example of flyer distributed in a university in France to fund scholar supplies and to send them in Burkina Faso (« We, students, we help each others… make a donation for a student half a world away… join the project…donate your scholar supplies you don’t use anymore to help a student in Burkina Faso… Meet us in B112 ») -

 

2) Organization of the cultural and sport day

 

30% of the money collected will help buy tables, benches, and awards for students but also food, and other ustensils to celebrate the last day of school of the 2018-2019 year. (to confirm : the date of this event will be on july 2nd, 3rd or 4th, depending on the weather)

3) Water pumps repairs

 

Finally, with the rest of the collect, Georges Tapsoba wants to make some repairs to the closest water pumps around the school to provide water for the students at anytime of the day.

(the website has been created for a previous project to collect scholar supplies few months ago and it surely need an update)

If you have reached this point, we would like to thank you from hundreds of young students in Burkina Faso, it is a little help for you and a wonderful change for the youth of Dagouma and Toece.

We will make a video of the cultural and sports day to show to all of you that with a very few things, a strong determination and a foolproof brotherhood, WE CAN ACHIEVE THE IMPOSSIBLE !

 

Give the opportunity to young students to change the world around them !
