Description

This session will focus on the challenges facing formal education authorities in under resourced areas, and how NGO’s can assist to improve formal education in the areas they serve. Many education authorities are willing to partner with NGO’s and may provide nationally prepared curricula and teachers for new schools that comply with their established design standards. We will discuss examples that offer extended educational opportunities for many communities that only have access to grades 1-6. This session will also focus on the challenges of Educational Facility Sustainability and the need for community training to identify and manage the resources needed for the life (50 years) of any new or existing school facilities.
