Defensores de la niñez

We provide children with tools and training they need to access education, overcome barriers and be a voice for change. We’ve had an office in Burkina Faso since 1987.

WHERE
WE
WORK

We foster quality child development

In Burkina Faso, we work with experts inside and outside our organization to support early childhood, a critical time of development. We’re changing mindsets, working with the government to deliver comprehensive, holistic curriculum to classrooms and child-friendly spaces in camps for the internally displaced. We’re helping kids find care, enrol in school and boosting their access to quality early education.
