Overview

For close to two thirds of all children in Burkina Faso, school is still well out of reach. Girls are especially disadvantaged: Barely 30 per cent are enrolled, and even fewer attend. To achieve the MDG by 2015, Burkina Faso will need to record an average annual rate of increase of over 4 per cent overall, and over 5 per cent for girls.
