Integration and cohesion in the education system
Client: UNICEF and the Ministry of Education of Côte d'Ivoire
Supporting the development of a national education strategy in Côte d'Ivoire
In Côte d'Ivoire, 400,000 children attend Islamic schools, most of which are not recognized by the state. The Ministry in Charge of Education, supported by UNICEF, had initiated the development of a national strategy for the integration of children from these schools in the formal education system. Quale supported this process for a year, bringing to this project our thematic expertise in this area, as well as our tried and tested working methods. We engaged the stakeholders in consultations and participatory analyses. The result was the development of a common vision and a robust strategy that enjoyed broad buy-in.
