At the community college, opportunity is created in the meeting between individuals to exchange experiences and skills that strengthen the knowledge and opportunity for the individual to be a part of an active democracy as included, educated and culturally understanding citizens. Education for adults and young adults at the community college makes it possible to build the local community on democratic values.
Higher Education / Vocational Training
Lifelong learning, the opportunity to take the next step in their education, and to receive specialized training in all different vocational areas needed for the development of society is fundamental for us to encourage, support and create.
Knowledge is a human right. With an IT initiative in the village, we open the world and create closeness to all the knowledge and information that is available. In a country like Burkina Faso with very little industry, and expensive import and export routes, investing in tech can also mean the solution to job-creating and development.
We are convinced of the importance of access to books, for the development of the society and children's possibility to continue with their studies. We want to focus on encouraging the language on broader levels, arouse curiosity and offer possibilities to development by reading, listening and writing.
The purpose of the library project is to awaken the child's and youth's desire to read both for pleasure and obtaining some knowledge.
Primary and Secondary School
The overall purpose is to run a primary and secondary school, which meets every child's real needs. A school that helps increase children's creativity, curiosity and desire to learn. The goal of Yennenga's schools is to provide real, useful knowledge that is necessary for continued schooling but also for everyday life outside the school and the development of the country.
The women in the village of Nakamtenga voiced the need for better education for their children and knew the existing school system made it very hard for their children to succeed and create a better future.
