Burkina Faso is currently ranked by the UN as the 7th economically poorest country in the world. It has one of the lowest levels of literacy in the world, with 73% of its population illiterate. No country has ever achieved continuous and rapid economic growth without first having at least 40% of its adults able to read and write. With this in mind, buildOn expanded to Burkina Faso with the generous support of actress and singer Katharine McPhee and Nick Cokas. Their support funded the first primary school.
