Improvement and Diversification Programme of the Educational Offer in West Africa (PADOE)

Main objective:

Improve and diversify the educational offer in West Africa through the development of local capacities for management and management of education systems and the promotion of alternative models of education for the care of those excluded from the formal system

Context:

Aide et Action takes action in Ivory Coast in a political and social context of post-crisis. The education system in the north of the country was disrupted or destroyed during the crisis from 2002 to 2010. Rebuilding this system in the whole country has been a priority.

Project:

For decades the education systems of many countries in West Africa, including Ivory Coast, counted millions of young people without a qualification. Given the weakness of apprenticeship systems and trades training, these youth, idle and without prospects, constitute potential risks for the social and political stability of countries. The decline in the level of qualification and motivation of teachers, the difficulties to implement school programmes that are more adapted to needs and
reality, the low quality of the learning environment are the main causes.

In this difficult context, Aide et Action set up a programme aimed at improving and diversifying the educational offer in West Africa through the development of local capacity for management and guidance of education systems and the promotion of alternative models of education for the care of those excluded from a formal system. In 2018, 14,332 students (including 53% girls), 333 teachers and 50 primary schools were involved in our activities.
