Early education is a challenge in Cote d'Ivoire where 25,000 children have not been enrolled in school especially the administrative area of Grand-Lahou due to lack of qualified personnel, land lock areas, and extreme poverty. This project is aimed at providing education for 2-5-year-old children whose parents cannot afford to enrol them during the academic year. The project will help the population to understand that little children, especially the girl-child, have the right to an education.
Early education is a huge challenge in Cote d'Ivoire where 25,000 school-age children have not been enrolled in school especially the administrative area of Grand-Lahou due to lack of qualified personnel, land lock areas, and extreme poverty. Parents do not have the funds to meet their child's school needs. There is a lack of qualified teachers, finance for teacher's salaries, school and administrative supplies, and lack of girl child awareness as parents prefer sending their male child instead.
Providing better school structure, supplies, and qualified personnel close to the rural population will enhance successful schooling, be a relief for families particularly women, and reduce the rate of poverty. This project will help the population to understand that the girl child has a right to education and more girls will be sent to school.
The long term impact is that the living conditions of 60 % of parents especially women will be improved as they will be able to boost their income generating activities resulting in more women entrepreneurs. It will equally reduce the rate of illiteracy in the Grand Lahou community which will help the government solve the problem of lack of schools and at the same time improve the living conditions of the population.
