Côte d’Ivoire-AIP / Review of the activities of the project “Right to inclusive education and to keep girls in school” in Bouaké

Bouaké, April 29, 2021 (AIP) – On Wednesday April 28, 2021, the Ran Hotel in Bouaké hosted a review of the activities of the project “Right to inclusive education and to keeping girls in school” organized by the two regional directorates of national education and literacy (DRENA) in Bouaké (DRENA-Bouaké 1 and DRENA-Bouaké 2) with technical and financial support from UNFPA.

For the various implementing partners of this project, the aim was to take stock of their implementation activities at mid-term, to identify the difficulties encountered as well as the corrective measures taken to these difficulties.

These implementing partners, in particular, DEMOS, Espoir-vie, ARSIP and the SAS center, have in turn present the main results obtained in the implementation of the project and identify the constraints to the realization of their activities. . They also formulated recommendations to accelerate the implementation of interventions in order to achieve the results of the project.

In the name of the recommendations formulated by the participants in this review appears the establishment of a regional steering committee whose mission will be to promote a synergy of action between the various partners of the project implementation.

With a view to strengthening the access of young girls to education through a transformative approach that touches on the factors of social and economic vulnerabilities, linked to gender inequalities and the non-valuation of the girl in relation to the boy in society, the government of Côte d’Ivoire with the technical and financial support of UNFPA initiated the project “Right to inclusive education and to keep girls in school”.

This project targets areas where vulnerability factors (school-based pregnancies, early marriages, gender-based violence, female genital mutilation) are real and where indicators of access to primary and secondary cycles are still low.

These are, in particular, the educational regions of the North-East (Bondoukou, Bouna and Abengourou), the West (Guiglo, Man-Sipilou) and the center (Bouaké, Yamoussoukro, Dimbokro, Daoukro, and Bongouanou) and the district of Abidjan (Abobo and Yopougon-Niangon).
