The project “Strengthening gender-based social inclusion for resilience and sustainable peace in the Sahel and the Eastern regions of Burkina Faso”,  funded by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA/OEZA) in partnership with UNICEF and national partners, aims to reduce gender inequality through education and social protection. The project is composed of two components: 1) Child protection: Protection of 16,000 adolescents aged 10 to 19 (girls and boys) in 320 villages; 2) Water/sanitation and hygiene (WASH): Promotion of girl education (through improving menstrual hygiene management) and improve out of school girl’s knowledge on menstrual hygiene management in host communities. Several activities will be implemented, such as public awareness and media campaigns, advocacy,  sensitization at community level; vocational and literacy training; provision of menstrual hygiene management hygiene kits to school girls; and the provision of scholarships and learning kits to girls at risk of child marriage in post primary school in order to maintain them in the school system. The programme will contribute to the Government’s strategic vision of development, sustaining peace and security and human rights, and is aligned with the National Socio-economic Development Plan (PNDES) 2016-2020, the African Union Agenda 2063 and the Sustainable Development Goals.
