In line with the interventions already carried out in the framework of the Structural Adjustment Programme, the project aims at:

  • Improvement of the quality of teaching through teacher training, up-grading ofdidactic equipment and improvement of living conditions of teachers in rural areas;
  • Development of an education system including the alphabetisation of youngsters in the non-formal Centres for Basic Education, with emphasis on the preparation fora working career;
  • Support to school canteens.

The strategy adopted consists of mobilizing all those concerned in the local education system and of the dynamism of the education system on regional level in order.
