Pastoral Care and Family Life Education

HOPE for AIDS in Burkina has partnered with local families from the 18 EE/SIM church regions trained in pastoral care of those infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. There are approximately 300 students in the 3 EE/SIM Bible Schools who will receive this training every two years. In addition, teaching modules are available in French, Fulfulde and Gourma in a 20 page summary booklet.

Two couples from each of the 19 EE/SIM church regions have been trained in the first level of marriage and family counseling by a team of couples from Family Life Movement Burkina Faso. The training of other couples in the churches has taken place in 9 regions and will continue in the 10 remaining regions. The trainers will receive two more levels of training and subsequently train the same couples who received the first level in their respective regions.
