The sectoral objective of the project is to support the implementation of the country's sectoral education and training policy. The specific objectives of the project are: (i) contribute to education and training with a view to facilitating the integration of young people into working life; and (ii) contribute to improving the access, quality and relevance of the education system as a whole.


Two main groups are targeted by the project. A first target group concerns young people in school and out of school aged 16 to 25, looking for work and other ways of finding work. It is estimated that nearly 250,000 of these young people arrive each year on the job market. The second target group is school-aged children, particularly in the disadvantaged areas of central and northern areas, for which school infrastructure is planned and their retention in the education system improved. In addition, among the target groups, special attention is given to girls to support the Government in its efforts to improve school enrollment and the status of women and reduce poverty.
