From 2014 to 2017 IFS-EMMAUS, thanks to the citizens of BH and donors, received scholarships for a total number of 2994 children.
This year, funds have been collected to finance 1,628 students in the western African state of Burkina Faso. A scholarship project for children in Burkina Faso, one of the poorest African countries, was launched in 2014 thanks to the wishes and ideas of IFS-EMMAUS employees and the network of partner organizations BBF (Bosnia-Burkina Faso – France).
In Burkina Faso, a major problem is illiteracy, primarily because of the lack of conditions for children to attend school. Thus, a humanitarian action entitled “Test Your Humanity – Help Me to Finish School” was launched, the main aim of which is to provide part of the scholarships to the children of Burkina Faso in order to successfully complete primary education.
A one-child scholarship is only 30 BAM (15 euros) for one school year.
From 2014 to 2017, IFS-EMMAUS, thanks to citizens and donors, received scholarships for a total number of 2994 children, and two containers were distributed, consisting of school supplies, food, hygiene packages, clothing, footwear, agricultural tools, and construction material.
In addition to BH citizens and BH diaspora, a large number of scholarships were provided by the Majlis of Islamic Community Srebrenik and Majlis of Islamic Community Gradačac. Going to school, hanging out with peers, playing and feeling joy is the right and need of children around the world. Still, data show that more than 38 million children in Africa still do not go to school.
IFS-EMMAUS continues with this project, so that all those who want to participate in scholarships for children can thus enforcing their belief in better and more secure future.
