Burkina Faso will receive a $12.9 million MCA grant to improve girls' primary education completion rates, the MCC announced today. The grant is the first of its kind for a Threshold country.
Managed through USAID, the Threshold Program provides assistance to countries that demonstrate a significant commitment to meet MCA selection requirements but nevertheless fail to complete the conditions.
Countries eligible for the Threshold Program are invited to submit funding proposals geared towards improving their performance in the indicators they missed in the selection process.
