  • Bright Schools Improve Girls' Education

    BURKINA FASO, 2014/03/14 This story was originally published on the Millennium Challenge Corporation's website March 12 as "From all Angles: BRIGHT Schools Improve Girls' Education." Just a decade ago, one could walk into a primary school classroom in Burkina Faso and see only a few girls sitting alongside 50 or 60 boys. Girls rarely attended middle school, let alone finished secondary school. Through its five-year, $480.9 million compact with Burkina Faso, the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), USAID and other partners are working together to find solutions to this problem.
