About the sponsor


The Centre for Integrated Education and Training of the Deaf and Hearing (CEFISE/Benaja) was created in December 1988 following authorisation N ° AN VI-0364/FP-SAN-AS/SEAS/DRS. The Centre is a component of CEFISE-Benaja, recognised as a development NGO in 1993, which operates in six (6) regions of Burkina Faso: Centre, Centre-Sud, Sud-Ouest, Centre-Nord, Nord and Plateau Central. The CEFISE has opened specific services for support, awareness and screening for the benefit of its target audience and the populations of Burkina Faso: Audiology, Speech and Language Therapy, and Psychology of Education. The CEFISE’s specificity as a school in the field of inclusive education in Francophone West Africa is that: – At the primary level, deaf, hard of hearing and hearing pupils learn together in the classroom, with only one teacher who takes the lesson and simultaneously translates into conventional sign language; – In secondary schools, teachers are assisted by professional sign language interpreters (LdS); – At the national level, the CEFISE is a reference centre for training in sign language. It is considered as a resource structure, which the State of Burkina Faso consults for the promotion of inclusive education.
