ASAP Foundation started a secondary agricultural school (LAP) in 2011, because the level of secondary education in Burkina Faso is quite low and does not match the level of our primary schools. Moreover, the schools are located in the city, making them difficult to reach for young people from the countryside.
The LAP is a boarding school. We offer children who come from poor rural families the opportunity to follow an in-house 4-year agricultural education, adapted to their needs. After this training, they can move on to a further training that also lasts 4 years.
After completing this training, young people have a better chance of finding a job or starting their own project. After the 2nd cycle, they continue on to university.
