In Ethiopia, the focus is on the quality of pre-school education and the extension of access to primary education, especially for girls from disadvantaged families. Another concentration of the program is that of children who are not able to go to school.
For example, a study of 2012 on this target group helped to develop a catalogue of measures to reduce the number of children outside the school system. In 2014, 790 primary schools were equipped with new teaching materials.
What has been achieved so far:
• 130,036 children (47.3 percent girls) had access to quality early childhood education programs.
• More than 380,000 girls and boys affected by emergencies have access to quality educational services.
• 622 primary school teachers and 46 social workers in conflict-affected regions received psychosocial and emotional training that benefited more than 66,500 children.
