Detailed description of project Back

The CREP project has as objective to strengthen the institutional capacity of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MoEYS) in school building project planning, design, management and monitoring of school building projects through:

  • Reduce capital investment in school building by controlling construction costs and quality through the establishment of adequate space norms and standards for primary schools design;
  • With the establishment of sustainable procedures, the MoEYS shall have the capacity to monitor and undertake all projects relating to school building construction either funded from internal or external sources;
  • Expansion of access to primary education with a particular attention to enrolment of girls, ethnical minorities and disadvantaged groups. It is expected to provide access to approximately 75,000 pupils to primary schools located within walking distance for their house through the provision of about 44,000 school places. Better-located schools shall increase access of girls to education and provide higher equity of access to education by contributing to school construction in remote locations;
  • Improve teaching quality by upgrading physical facilities of schools;
  • Sustain community efforts in constructing and equipping primary schools. By implementing school construction projects with community participation, improve building maintenance.
