Enhance human capital development by education has a positive effect on economy, environnement protection, like health and nutrition. In this sense the Sub-Saharan African countries are constrained by the lowest literacy rates in the world. It's 30 % in Burkina Faso when it's 99 % in France.
This project is part in the goal n°4 OMD « By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood », also in the goal n°3 « Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages » and the goal n°15 « Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss ».
Even if the quantitative schooling coverage in Burkina Faso have improve significantly, with a schooling improving to 11 % in 1970 to 80 % in 2012, the quality of the educational resources (human and equipement) and the quality of education remains very weak.
ADVK was requested by the mayor of Bama to equip a multimedia room of 100 m2 in books, textbooks and computer equipments. The building housing this multimedia room for the youth of the town was funded by the Government of Burkina Faso.
Actions to be taken
The mayor of Bama and the ADVK will be in charge of the management of these facilities through a management committee comprising a representative of the municipality, a representative of the ADVK,
a member of the teaching teams and a student representative.
About thirty cabinets, school furniture, 10 computer packages (CPU, screen, mouse keyboard) will be the subject of in-kind requests from companies or communities in the Occitanie region (in-kind contribution assessed at 10,000 $).
Books and textbooks will be collected from schools and libraries in the Albi region.
The hardware must be upgraded with the installation of the free operating system (Linux) and the purchase of 3G keys must allow users to connect to the internet.
Transport to Bama will be done with a container of 12 feet (30 m3) via a forwarder.
The installation of solar panels will allow to feed 6 air brewers during the day to facilitate the ventilation especially to preserve the computer equipment.
Forecast budget 19,000 $
The primary schools in the Kou Valley A, C and H have 20 classes and nearly 1,500 schoolchildren.
Due to the unsanitary condition of a building, the pupils are divided into 19 classes accentuating the overcrowding (on average 80 pupils per class).
The aim of this project is to renovate this class which is now used as a store for the start of the 2020-21 school year. A store will be built between two existing buildings.
It is also planned to equip each class with a hand washing. Each year, approximately 5,000 children under the age of 5 worldwide die from diarrhea and pneumonia due to the use of contaminated water. According to Unicef and the WHO, by regular hand washing, the morbidity rate can be halved.
Faced with the arrival of Covid-19 in Burkina Faso, one of the only means of protection available to populations is regular hand washing.
Actions to be taken
Renovation consists of redoing the building's roof, ceilings, openings and paintings. These works will be carried out by craftsmen from the city of Bama.
The hand washing are mobile and will be returned to the classes at the end of the lessons. The 60 liters water reserve will be filled by the students every morning. The wastewater recovered in the bucket will be thrown into the sump of the borehole.
Forecast budget 3,000 $
