Lambs for Girls’ Education

FBF’s partnership with Association Nimbus, Enfance, Environnement, Education et Developpement (a non-profit non-governmental organization formed and run by Burkinabe) launched the Lambs for School Project in 2002 which is still ongoing. This program buys a lamb and school materials for a girl’s first year of school and requires her parents to 1) raise and sell the lamb at the end of the year to pay for their daughter’s school needs the following year and 2) use the proceeds from the sale of the lamb to purchase another lamb.
