Global Initiative on Out-of-School Children
The Global Out-of-School Children Initiative (OOSCI), a partnership between UNICEF and the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS), was launched in 2010 to help countries to undertake focused research on the situations of Out-of-School Children.
The UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) estimated in the 2013 Global Monitoring Report that fourteen countries had more than 1 million children out of primary school in 2011, including Afghanistan, China, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia, Sudan (pre-secession) and the United Republic of Tanzania. Phase one of the OOSC Initiative focused on conducting studies in 26 countries. Tanzania joined the countries participating in the second round of studies.
