Burkina Faso: Promoting Equality and Safety in Schools (PEASS)
We work together to promote equality and safety in schools.View the Project
Through the Strengthening Assistance for Child Trafficking Survivors project, funded by the Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, Plan International will focus on:
The project will target girls and boys ages 10-18 in Cascades, Boucle de Mouhoun and North regions of Burkina Faso as these areas experience a high rate of child trafficking, including the emerging trends of trafficking by violent extremist groups. By working across multiple levels of the socio-ecological model, including the family, community and society levels, the protective environment surrounding children will be strengthened. This will include supporting the government-run hotline to report cases, developing a directory of services and providing case management support and legal services to survivors.
Plan will partner with Keoogo, a local organization, to provide medical, legal and psychosocial support to child survivors, and will work with children who are excluded from society to reintegrate.
Your gift to Plan International USA will be used where needed most, to help create sustainable change and address the root causes of poverty and inequality. Donations can support programs, innovation, and infrastructure required to deliver our programs to girls and children worldwide, in areas such as protection, education, health, sanitation, disaster relief and economic empowerment.
