UNICEF supports the national effort to implement the right for all children to education. In this sense, UNICEF activities aim at:
- Effective free education
- Reduction of regional disparities (urban/rural)
- Gender parity through a girl’s education acceleration programme
- Young child and adolescent preparation to education
- Support to alternative education.
UNICEF supports the increase and the improvement of the quality of the education offer, through a strong partnership with other United Nations agencies and technical and financial partners. UNICEF also contributes to the development and recognition by the State of alternative educational offers (bridging classes, community schools).
The essential education package that includes school rehabilitation, hygiene and sanitation facilities, school material, training for teachers as well as community involvement and child participation will be provided to a larger number of schools.
