Implementation of Child Rights in Burkina Faso

Implementation of Child Rights in Burkina Faso

Good Governance and Civil Society

Client:

GIZ

Period:

2016 – 2018

Country:

Burkina Faso

Project description:

 

Burkina Faso is a very poor country, ranging among the least developed countries in the world (HDR-Report 2014: 181 of 187 countries) and has a very young population. More than half of its population (53%) is younger than 18 years old. Even though Burkina Faso has ratified all the important agreements concerning child rights and has passed crucial rights for child protection, there are still many violations to child rights, such as trafficking of children, child labour, gender-based violence and forced child marriage.

Goal:

 

The PRO-Enfant project aims at increasing the readiness to implement measures for child security at national, regional and local level. AMBERO works in cooperation with Internationaler Bund to implement the following component: “Actors at local level are strengthened to protect girls and boys from child trafficking, the worst forms of child labour, and gender-based violence (GBV).” This component is being implemented especially in the regions East and South West.

Please find here videos (in french) about a slam workshop and contest organized with children beneficiaries of the Program.
