The Basic Education Enhancement Project was designed and developed in 2003 within the context of Basic Education Development Programme (PDDE) implementation. This programme is the single reference framework for the education policy, which gives priority to basic education in its implementation. The project is limited mainly to this sub-sector of the system. It's the continuation of Education Project I, with which it shares components and a similar objective, and which was implemented satisfactorily. It's limited mainly to this sub-sector of the system. It intends, by taking into account the educational system’s constraints, to provide solutions to the problems of access, quality, relevance and equity of basic education, as well as health and STI/HIV/AIDS in schools. The project has four (4) components namely : (1) access and quality improvement of basic cycles 1 and 2 education; (2) support for girls’ education and female literacy; (3) school health improvement and STI/HIV/AIDS control; and (4) project management.
The project’s sector goal is to contribute to PDDE implementation. The specific objectives are as follows: i) increase access and strengthen equity and quality in basic cycles 1 and 2 education; ii) improve school health and intensify STI/HIV/AIDS control; and iii) strengthen the institutional capacities of basic education.
The final beneficiary of the program is the school-age population of the project areas (Tillabery, Maradi, Tahoua and Zinder regions), as well as the adults who should benefit from the literacy classes. Indeed, students and adults should benefit in the medium and long term from the establishment of better learning conditions. The intermediate beneficiaries are the Ministry of Basic Education I and Literacy, whose institutional and human capacities should be strengthened.
