Detailed description of project Back
For the domain of literacy in the Hauts Bassins Region of Burkina Faso the indicators are relatively low (literacy level between 12 and 44%), especially in the rural areas and more particularly for girls and women. The regional framework for poverty reduction aims to raise the literacy level to 50% by 2010.
Within the frame of the general cooperation agreement between Burkina Faso and the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg, Lux-Development was mandated to implement the project BKF/003 “Improving functional literacy and integrated rural development in the Hauts Bassins Region”. After release of the final evaluation of this project in February 2003, the Burkina Faso authorities requested a second phase to consolidate the results obtained and to extend the activities to the whole of the region. In July 2004 Lux-Development was mandated to implement this second phase.
The development objective of this project, implemented over a period of four years, is to support the creation of a literate environment that stimulates innovation in poverty reduction. In the end the implementation of the project is supposed to lead to a dynamic network of associations capable of executing activities promoting literacy and development in the region.
The objective of the mission is to undertake an intermediate evaluation of the project.
