Children in the Central African Republic (CAR) suffer from a massive shortage of quality education services. This is caused by a myriad of factors, such as insufficient financial resources to build and maintain schools or to afford learning materials. Other important obstacles include shortages of qualified staff, lack of adequate quality control mechanisms and an unsafe learning environment due to the violent conflict.
Given the need to improve the educational system, Cordaid has launched an emergency education project in the northwest of the country, in the sub-prefectures of Bocaranga and Koui in Ouham Pendé and the sub-prefecture of Bouar in Nana Mambére.
This publication describes how Cordaid is improving the education sector in the conflict-torn setting of the Central African Republic. We do this, amongst others, through results-based financing and by linking relief, rehabilitation and development.
The first publication is in English and the second is in French.
