Sports, Blood Drive, and AIDS Prevention on Day of Peace in Burkina Faso


Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso – Several days of celebration included sports, a blood donation drive, and youth character education with an emphasis on AIDS prevention. Programs were held in four provinces of Burkina Faso: Djubo, Kaya, Nanoro and Ouagadougou.

A seminar on “Youth for Peace and Development” was held in partnership with the National Assembly and attended by a representative of His Majesty le Mogho Naaba Baongo, who serves as UPF’s Honorary Chair, members of the Assembly, religious, community and political leaders, and the president of the National Youth Council.

His Majesty Kamsongho Naaba Sanem encouraged the young people to make peace a daily behavior and said that he hoped the conference proceedings could be translated into Morée, the national language. Ms. Ilboudo Mau Ngoma, Secretary General of UPF-Burkina Faso, introduced the UN Day of Peace and delivered the message of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
