    The right to education of internally displaced children/youth in Burkina Faso preserved thanks to the WAN
    Insecurity in the Sahel has displaced hundreds of thousands of people, including many children and young people. In the 9th district of Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso, entire families are settled and live in precarious conditions, with food, economic, health and housing problems. Sensitive to the situation of internally displaced children and young people and faithful to its commitment in their favour, ISS-WA, through the WAN, set up in December 2019, as a matter of urgency, an initiative to promote the rights to education called INITIATIVE 1-2-3. A total of 123 of them supported in an educational project. Three months after their reintegration into school, ISS-WA and the AMWCY organised a follow-up mission for these children and their families.
