ACTS Ministry works with the most vulnerable of the poor. Widows and orphans in villages are hopeless without intervention. ACTS is dedicated to bringing education and basic skills to women and children to break the cycle of poverty.

Children at Risk

This comprehensive project provides education for development, sustenance, immediate medical care, and life skills training to AIDS orphans, other children at risk.

The statistics for children in Burkina Faso are tragic:

  • 1 infant in 5 will die before their 5th birthday

  • 37% of children up to the age of five are underweight for their age

  • 65% of children do not attend school

Empowerment of Women

ACTS Ministry believes that sustainable development cannopt be realized in countries like Burkina Faso when whomen do not have access to basic necessities of life nor education. Statistics from the Human Development Index show that only 16% of women over 15 years of age are literate. OPf the entire population of 16 million, 13% have improved sanitation and 61% have access to an improved water source. Electric service reaches only 1.5 million of the population.

ACTS empowers women through literacy, income generation and micro-enterprise, immediate medical care, practical life skill training and education and promotion of human rights.
