In spite of the ratification of international conventions and the definition of a new education and training policy, drop-out rates still represent a major problem in Senegal. Many students leave school early, and the vast majority are girls. The drop-out rate was still 11.9% in 2014. To counter this, it is therefore important to drive through a solid policy, at several levels.
The overall objective of the project is therefore focused on three axes:
- Strengthening the capacities of education stakeholders.
- Keeping girls in school.
- Improving school performance within the department of Tambacounda.
This project is concentrated on the region of Tambacounda, in Senegal.
