Why advance education of girls in Africa?

Girls education is not only a fundamental human right, but also the most crucial vehicle to fulfill other development objectives. It changes the lives of vulnerable girls, empowers them and gives them a chance to take responsibility for their own future. Learn more.

Burkina Faso

Our focus is on Burkina Faso, a landlocked country in West Africa and one of the poorest in the world. Reinhard Gorenflos, the founder of TuaRes, spent part of his childhood in Burkina. The country has approximately 19 million inhabitants and a per capita GDP of $710.1It is ranked 181st out of 187 countries according to the United Nations Development Program’s human development indicators.2 Only 42% of the girls finish primary school.

The Value of Education

We are convinced that educating girls is the single most effective strategy to ensure the well being of families and the long-term success of developing countries.

TuaRes strives to unleash this potential by facilitating access and quality in schools and by adopting targeted measures that increase the graduation rate of the most vulnerable ones. It is our goal to provide girls coming from low-income families, orphans and victims of abuse with adequate means to be able to graduate from school with good marks.
