Project Nanoro in Burkina Faso: Dreams come true

07.09.2023

TÜV AUSTRIA has been supporting the construction of Bethel High School in Burkina Faso since 2019. The Nanoro project has made significant progress since then and is now nearing completion.

In the past few weeks, final consultations have taken place with the companies involved as well as the lead technician, who is also supervising the construction, in order to coordinate the last steps of the construction phase. Thanks to the recent progress, one can hardly speak of a construction site any more, even if the final touches are still missing. Although the buildings may seem simple to our eyes, the idea and the campus are something unique and inspiring for the people of Burkina Faso.

Technicians of the future

Bethel High School, strategically located halfway between the capital and Mali, can accommodate 900 students from the age of 14. The first school level will start in October and 300 students can already be admitted. Already 220 interested students have registered. It is particularly pleasing that 120 of these registrations are from girls. This is a great success and a sign that the years of educational work and seminars of the project participants in the community have been successful.

Teaching staff is also already available, with 26 teachers, some with university degrees, ready to share their knowledge and shape the future of the students.

The Nanoro project can look back on a remarkable development since the start of the project, especially against the background of the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and political unrest in Burkina Faso.

Education is the key

Driven by the chances that this opportunity for education opens up for the future pupils, the motivation of all those involved in the project for the upcoming final phase is enormous. The project team expresses its heartfelt thanks for the support that has made it possible to realise this project and thus make dreams come true.

End-of-year remarks

Into the new year with optimism
Dr. Stefan Haas, CEO TÜV AUSTRIA Group

The Russian war of aggression has still not come to an end, we are witnesses to Israel’s fight against Hamas terror. Natural disasters, environmental pollution and much more cast a dim outlook on the future. So why are we actually optimistic about 2024?
