Burkina Faso

With most of its people involved in subsistence farming, the people of Burkina Faso are overwhelmingly poor. But the poverty is not just at the surface; they deal with spiritual poverty as well. Half of its people are Muslim, 20% are Christians, but all struggle with animist and occult beliefs. With all these extremes, the challenge of Christian ministries is to bring compassion with the truth of the gospel. Awana Burkina Faso brings the life-changing truth to kids; it equips leaders there with mentorship, courage, and proven training methods; and it changes the lives of many who wonder if life can provide something more.  

Reaching Kids in Burkina Faso
There are over 8 million children in Burkina Faso today under the age of 15—a number that is quickly increasing due to rapid population growth. Children there have some of the poorest conditions in the world, including a very low literacy rate for girls. Awana Burkina Faso can meet that challenge with its solid Biblical, visually appealing program. Providing mentoring and discipleship, Awana Burkina Faso is able to come alongside through local churches in ways foreign organizations cannot. Since the first club began there in 1997, the gospel of Christ has shown each child in Awana that he or she is precious to God and created especially by Him!

Every week, Awana Burkina Faso reaches 2,245 children with the gospel in their heart language through 35 clubs.

Equipping Leaders in Burkina Faso
Awana is a proven program for reaching kids with the gospel. Yet it disciples the rest of the church through equipping the Awana club leaders. Discipleship strengthens the church by teaching new converts from Islam and reducing religious confusion. Awana Burkina Faso supports each church’s leaders by building each Awana program upon leadership especially trained to reach children, like those who use our Leader-Based Strategy (LBS) curriculum.

National missionaries, who understand the complexity of their countries, assist the churches which use the Awana program.

Changing the World in Burkina Faso
Countries in Africa are not like the U.S., where kids have an array of choices for activities. When a church starts the Awana program in Burkina Faso, children have a meaningful and fun place to go as they learn about the gospel. Adults are discipled and trained to make more disciples. Awana seeks to reach more children in Burkina Faso with the gospel and equip more leaders there.
