YEN.com.gh has learned that a man and woman in Burkina Faso have decided to raise their daughter as both a Muslim and Christian.

Records available show that five-year-old Osnia Ouattara is being introduced to both the Catholic faith of her father, Denis Ouattara and the Muslim faith of her mother, Afoussatou Sanou.

In a rather unique display of religious integration, Osnia celebrates both Christmas and the Islamic festival of Eid.

She argues that "Islam is a religion that promotes tolerance and the acceptance of others in their way of seeing things."

Per a report by BBC News Africa, Denis and Afoussatou have lived together since meeting six years ago in Toussiana, a rural town 55km (34 miles) from Burkina Faso's second city, Bobo Dioulasso.

The business, known as Kiddie Commute, is the only Black woman-owned transportation company in the state.

YEN.com.gh understands that it is also the only comprehensive service which serves the needs of parents and caregivers and offers safety and reliability.

Cureton, per a report by blacknews.com, revealed that Kiddie Commute was created purely out of a need. According to her, “I am a busy working mother. At the time, I worked and went to school full time. My youngest son was in Kindergarten,

I had another son in middle school, and a daughter in high school. It was challenging picking up my youngest son from class in the middle of the day when I had to work or be in class.”

She added that she had no peace of mind and was uncertain about the safety measures provided by the existing transport service.
