  • HRH the Princess of Hanover contributes for the second year to a UNESCO project in Burkina Faso to strengthen women’s capacities

    02-02-2006 8:00 am Her Royal Highness the Princess of Hanover, UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador, has made, in her second year of support, an additional contribution of € 70,000 to the UNESCO project Strengthening Women’s Capacities to Promote Education for Children in Rural Areas in Burkina Faso.

    The objective of the project is to contribute to realizing the goals of Education for All by assuring at the same time the enrolment of all children of the village of Ladiga and the highest possible autonomy of the women in the village. About 450 people, particularly women and children, benefit directly from the project.

    Ladiga is situated in one of the most impoverished and under-developed provinces of Burkina Faso. The project highlights the necessity of education and empowerment of women to escape the vicious cycle of pov- erty through acceding to autonomy. It has also benefited from an active partnership, combining technical services for early childhood care, health care and education.

    Thanks to the continued funding and support of the Principality of Monaco and Her Royal Highness the Princess of Hanover over the last two years, the project has raised much hope in the community of Ladiga. In the first year of implementation the project could already become an established part of community life, while awareness-raising actions will help the village members adopt successfully the project activities.
