Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso is a landlocked nation in West Africa. It is surrounded by six countries: Mali to the north, Niger to the east, Benin to the south east, Togo and Ghana to the south, and C™te d'Ivoire to the south west. Formerly called the Republic of Upper Volta, it was renamed on August 4, 1984 by President Thomas Sankara to mean "the land of upright people" in Morˇ and Dioula, the major native languages of the country. Literally, "Burkina" may be translated, "men of integrity," from the Morˇ language, and "Faso" means "father's house" in Dioula. Independence from France came in 1960. Governmental instability during the 1970s and 1980s was followed by multiparty elections in the early 1990s. Several hundred thousand farm workers migrate south every year to C™te d'Ivoire and Ghana in search of paid labour. The inhabitants of Burkina Faso are known as Burkinabˇ
