Advent collection - hope to Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso has been plagued by great poverty and conflict. Due to the conflicts in the country, over 2,000 schools are currently closed, and many are being forced to flee in their own country.

Caritas therefore supports youth and children clubs in Burkina Faso, where children can meet and develop in a safe environment and be allowed to be children. The children will have the opportunity to do social activities such as sports, music, get help to learn to read and write, make plays and much more. Here they will be welcomed and greeted with love and recognition for the traumas they have been through. They will have the opportunity to be together across ethnic and cultural differences, so that they get to know each other in a natural way and can set an example for their parents. In this way, the children will help counteract radicalization and generally promote peaceful coexistence in their villages. The leisure center is an alternative to being on the street and prevents the children from being radicalized by extreme groups.
