Burkina Faso, with the great contribution of the Republic of China (TAIWAN), is implementing a significant Program of Vocational Training Reinforcement (PRFP) from 2007 to 2013. Aiming at improving human wealth, this program which was planned to start in 2006 was actually set up in 2007. The PRFP is governed by the decree N°2007 – 775/PRES/PM/MEF of November 22nd providing 2007 general regulation of projects or programs of development to be implemented in Burkina Faso.

It is set under the Prime Ministry’s authority and highly involves the Ministry of Youth and Employment (MJE) and the Ministry of Secondary, Higher Education and Scientific Research (MESSRS).

The decree N°2007-007/PM/SG/DASCE of 30 August 2007, endows the program with three management units and organizes it into five components.
