« 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.
