Resilient Education for Crisis Affected Children in Burkina-Faso

Funding Agency:
US Agency for International Development

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications for a cooperative agreement from qualified entities to implement the Resilient Education for Crisis Affected Children in Burkina Faso. Eligibility for this award is not restricted.

The purpose of the Resilient Education for Crisis-Affected Children activity is to increase primary education completion, particularly for displaced and host community learners who have been marginalized due to conflict and crisis conditions, with improved foundational skills and wellbeing, even in the face of shocks and stressors. A disproportionate number of Burkinabe primary schoolaged children are unable to complete their primary school education, nor receive quality instruction, and therefore struggle to acquire foundational skills. Insecurity, displacement and climate risks further exacerbate poor education conditions for both host community and displaced learners. This activity has been designed to support the Government of Burkina Faso’s Education Sector Plan (2017-2030).

Organizations may submit only one application under this NOFO.  Interested applicants from within Duke should contact fundopps@duke.edu as early as possible.

Deadline: Dec. 30, 2022
