Burkina Faso has some of the lowest human development indicators in terms of life expectancy, educational attainment and income. The Hunger Project has been working in Burkina Faso since 1997 and has been incredibly successful in empowering partners in 15 epicenter communities to end their own hunger and poverty.
It has been a very exciting summer at The Hunger Project-Burkina Faso. Boulkon Epicenter welcomed the Head of the Health and Nutrition Department of UNICEF and a specialist in community health on June 6. Over the course of their visit they met with animators and health program leaders.
