Detailed description of project Back
Mali has been experiencing a political and security crisis for several years, which has had a major impact on the education sector throughout the country, causing thousands of schools to close due to insecurity. In 2020, the global Covid-19 pandemic was the last blow to an already weakened sector; given the situation, the Malian government has decided to close all schools in the national territory.
The closure of schools and the paralysis of the education system can have disastrous consequences such as:
These two crises in Mali have accelerated the need to develop distance learning and self-education opportunities through the use of digital tools so that, despite the closure of schools, students and teachers still have access to educational resources to continue their education. The UNICEF project is part of this effort to ensure long-term access to education for all and also to provide classroom support through digital tools.
The main objective of this project is to support the identification and development of appropriate digital resources and the implementation of a Learning Management System (LMS) in Mali. Another goal is to improve the quality of education and peace education by providing tablets and training teachers in Gao, Timbuktu and Mopti.
The work will help the Ministry of Education to identify the most appropriate platform for the LMS and to strengthen the leadership capacity of the Ministry of Education.
