Burkina F’Asso: solidarity… and collaboration!
The Burkina F’Asso Student Society is composed of 11 EM Normandie students and contributes to the local development of Burkinabe villages. For a year now, they have supported the Badenya All Purpose Training & Education Centre in Moundasso which welcomes students to train hem in farming, cattle breeding, building and handicraft manual work. Their objective: to give the Training Centre the means to self-finance itself through a circular economy model which allows learners to learn, produce and sell their work to finance their school. To achieve this, this Student Society organises events throughout the year to raise funds together with students from IUT GEA in Le Mans and the Terre et Cité Association.
