The U.S. Embassy in Ouagadougou invites all American citizens and parents of minor American citizens to the rescheduled town hall meeting with Ambassador Sandra Clark on Thursday, May 5, from 10:00am to 11:00am.  Due to COVID-19 precautions, the event will be held virtually, although there will be a limited number of spots available to attend the town hall in person at the Embassy.
