The education system in Burkina Faso and Mali is marked by multiple problems in the education and training of primary and secondary students. In addition to the problems of insufficient premises, equipment and teaching materials, other major problems must be taken into account. Among these problems are the low quality of teacher training and the near inability of education authorities to provide retraining for teachers. Taking this last aspect into account, HOPE’87 Burkina Faso together with its partners from the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research has implemented this project to facilitate real quality education in Burkina Faso and Mali. The project has enabled the training and retraining of teachers in both technical and general fields in the area of ​​quality education according to the UNESCO principles to which Mali and Burkina Faso have adhered to. Furthermore, schools have been equipped with toilets and ramps to allow students with special needs to have good access to classrooms and computers as well as books in the field of technical and professional training have been made available for students and teachers.
