As entrepreneurship education and training becomes increasingly important in Burkina Faso and more institutions show interest, introducing KAB in Burkina Faso becomes like a more viable possiblity. Thus, a workshop has been held in Ouagadougou involving entrepreneurship education promoters and facilitators working in higher level education in order to raise awareness about the KAB distance learning methodology. So far, there are 3 Burkinabe KAB facilitators, all trained in workshops conducted in Senegal. In 2009, several national education and training institutions, the ILO and partner organizations intend to elaborate and initiate a strategy to boost entrepreneurship education based on KAB in Burkina Faso, including the training of more facilitators, trainers and promoters.
