Together with the Ethiopian Ministry of Education, we work to address the causes of lack of access, participation and completion of basic and lower secondary education including challenges of enrollment, gender and geographical disparities, quality, completion and dropout rates, school environment and capacity to implement sector plans. 

The programme focuses on supporting interventions to address the causes of lack of access, participation and completion of basic and lower secondary education. It will address challenges of enrollment, gender and geographical disparities, quality, completion and dropout rates, school environment and capacity to implement sector plans. 

The total budget for this programme component for 2012 – 1015 is US$84 million and it will contribute to the following national and regional results:

(i)
   The Ministry of Education, regional education bureaus, woreda education offices and schools have the capacity to improve sector performance, develop and interpret better policies, and build systems to improve access and learning achievement. The emphasis will be on reaching remote /pastoralist and vulnerable populations;

(ii)
  Children from the prenatal stage to age seven living in at least 120 lagging woredas (districts) are supported with integrated health, nutrition, protection, early stimulation and school readiness intervention and are ready to learn;

(iii)
 All out-of-school girls and boys living in selected lagging woredas, including those affected by emergencies, have access to, participate in and complete general education of high quality;
