Main sequences: UNICEF is improving literacy rates in Côte d’Ivoire by helping to establish non-formal schools where children can fit their education around their farming chores. Classes are arranged around farming schedules, with more time for schooling during the slow season. Protecting children’s right to education often requires innovative thinking that works with – not against – local traditions.
