Description and results

Description

This project seeks to support Burkina Faso’s Ministry of National Education and Literacy (MENA) in implementing its Basic Education Strategic Development Program (PDSEB) for the 2017-2022 period. This is done by helping to improve access to quality education for girls and boys aged 6 to 16. The program is also helping to achieve gender parity in terms of access to post primary education and the completion of primary and post primary education. Project activities include the following: (1) building and equipping approximately 4,000 new classrooms each year for primary and post primary schools; (2) increasing the number of qualified teachers to approximately 105,000 by 2021; (3) adopting specific measures to encourage girls’ education; (4) setting up training programs tailored to out of school youth, training teachers and implementing new curricula; (5) providing textbooks; (6) strengthening school management committees and MENA’s archiving and internal control systems.

Expected results

The expected results of this project include the following: (1) narrower gaps in access to education, thereby improving gender parity at the primary and post primary levels; (2) improved quality of service delivery for basic education; (3) more effective basic education steering and management practices at all levels of the education system.
