Training young women in non-traditional professions

Partner : ATTOUS – Yenenga

Country : Burkina Faso

Since 2004 the LÉGER FOUNDATION has been helping give youth in Burkina Faso a chance to succeed by partnering with ATTOUS – Yenenga (l’Association tous pour tous), an organization that supports the training of young women in non-traditional professions.

Thanks to this project, 12 young women are currently in their second year of mechanical studies at the the Ouagadougou Center for Women In Trades (CFIAM, Centre féminin d’initiation et apprentissage aux métiers), with another 11 in their fourth year and on their way to a brighter future.
