Burkina Faso Threshold Program

The Burkina Faso Threshold Program's end date was October 1, 2008. The Threshold Program is now closed.

MCC and the Government of Burkina Faso signed a threshold program on July 23, 2005, to promote economic growth and shared values by improving the level of access and quality of girls’ education in the country’s 10 lowest-performing provinces.

The agency used policy areas measured by the Girls’ Primary Education Completion indicator on MCC country scorecards as guidelines in defining the goals of the program, which ended on September 30, 2008.
