Support to the developement of Diébougou
Description: The project is initiated by the association UJFRAD (Union of Fraternal Youth of Diébougou) since 1998. It promotes the intercultural mixing between volunteers and local people in the region of south-west Burkina Faso, in the town of Diébougou. Region rich in history, it offers touristic sites classified in UNESCO. The population wants to mobilize and join forces around several activities with the aim of preserving this touristic and historical space by bringing an environmental dimension to the project: reforestation of the cave and sensitization to the monitoring of the plants. The project will also focus on education in a region where social issues are numerous: renovation of classrooms at the primary school of Diébougou. The volunteers will join a group of 15 local volunteers.
Type of Work: Repair the school rooms so that children can attend classes properly. Encourage villagers to periodically maintain village infrastructure. Participate in reforestation activities around the cave of Diébougou. UJFRAD, which usually offers forum theater activities, will take time with the group to create a skit on a theme that interests them and will ensure the establishment of intercultural exchanges with families of Diébougou.
