« In the past, we used to struggle. We missed almost everything. For the past 4 - 5 years, UNICEF has provided remarkable support. We have benefited from school kits, classrooms, human resource support. For this Education Cannot Wait programme, we have received science materials including slates, squares, compasses and registers. The aim is to improve practicing science subjects for both students and teachers. More than 12,000 students are targeted, 40% of whom are girls. » Adam Ali Mbodou, pedagogical inspector of Bol Urbain.
"These science materials enable us to teach better. We can draw the different shapes and give students an idea of a straight line, a 90° line or a curve."
« Student kits consist of notebooks, pencils, plastic bags and teacher kits contain squares, compasses, protractors, slates and brushes. At the pilot school in Bol, a total of 10 teachers and 775 pupils (385 boys and 376 girls) are involved in this distribution. We have also received hand washing kits," says David Moussa, Principal at the pilot school of Bol.
