Meeting with Minister of Education

Hello Friends of Burkina Faso

An African University in Burkina Faso with 30,000 students

Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso

We met last week with the Minister of Education of Burkina Faso, the honorable Joseph Par’e. We are very close to securing the final permits, one that will allow the university to be started and the second to protect the land from any infringement. Engineering Ministries International of Colorado Springs, Colorado will travel to Burkina Faso in February 2010 to conduct the final survey and begin the final construction plans, so we may begin construction. The University will be named “The Light of Hope” an African University.
