Association for the Promotion of Youth

More than 900 young people from families in difficulty are cared for by the "Association pour la Promotion des Jeunes" (APJ - LPJ)  through quality education

The APJ was created in 1997 following the observation that, in the city of Fada (Burkina Faso), young people were left to their own devices and that they were seriously threatened by crime, unemployment and other juvenile scourges.

A needs analysis led the project to the creation of a high school with first only evening classes, then it opened both during the day and in the evenings. Indeed, the city has a population of 48,500 and only 4 middle schools, 5 high schools and 2 vocational training centers.

The population is mainly young with an enrolment rate of 52%. The final objective is to work for the standing up of young people by:

  • the organization of moral, cultural and professional training and educational activities;
  • the provision of quality education and the provision of a library;
  • the creation of a framework and a meeting place to listen to young people and their difficulties in order to propose solutions.

 

The project has 9 classrooms and an administrative building that has just been expanded. The library built in 2014-2015 has been open since the first quarter of the 2015-2016 school year. More than 650 students in daytime classes and more than 250 in evening classes, parents, teachers and indirectly a large population.

The school fees are charged and allow the college to be financially autonomous. Some students, coming from families in difficulty, are nevertheless cared for by the school. Most teachers are temporary employees.
