The background of this eLearning project is a preschool in Nakamtenga starting nine years ago. The women in Nakamtenga village in Burkina Faso, most of them illiterates, realized the need of a preschool.
The women decided to build the preschool themselves, stone by stone. And by now the school has been running for nine years.
Eva Karlsson, pedagogue working for MKFC with a broad experience of teaching and learning in several African countries since 35 years, were the pioneers working together with the women from the very beginning. She created the structure and developed the content of this pilot project. Eva Karlsson has received, from the hands of the Burkina Faso President Mr Blaise Compaore, the national distinction Chevalier de l’ordre de Mérite.
The new semester has started at the preschool in Nakamtenga in Burkina Faso.
The children stand in line to get a place in kindergarten. Parents will be cycling from neighbouring villages with their children.
