n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Female education and mission, P. Ouedraogo : book review

Volume 41, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



This book represents the fruit of new and innovative qualitative community-based action research on female education as life-long learning in Africa, with special reference to the context of Burkina Faso. Using a narrative and case study methodology in the absence of substantial primary and secondary evidence, the author rigorously pursued his research in such a way that one of the positive results is the government's adoption of accelerated learning Speed Schools in 2006 as a way of expediting the growth of female education. This model has a universal application. Ouedraogo's basic premise is that the development of female education is a vital component of the socio-economic growth of nations.
