Beginning in 2010, in partnership with the Milton & Beatrice Wind Foundation and the Federation of American Women’s Clubs Overseas (FAWCO), FBF began supporting scholarships for post secondary education for girls in northern Burkina Faso.  In the past three years, in collaboration with our partners, we have supported 33 scholarships.  GlobalGiving has also become a partner to this project.  We offer scholarships in primary teacher training (approximately $1600), State nursing and midwifery training (approximately $3500) and university education (approximately $9400).  Actual costs in US dollars are dependent upon exchange rates.   All girls have been successful in their training.
