Togo is set to receive CFA33 billion from the International Development Association (IDA) to fund education. This is coming after The World Bank approved last Thursday, the disbursement of in the funds. The fund is intended for “Improving Quality and Equity of Basic Education Project” in Togo.
The monies will be injected into the government’s 2020-2030 Education Sectoral Plan. In detail, some of the funds will “boost primary and middle school education, as well as improve the overall management of the education system.” Part of it will be used to build classrooms, train instructors, reform curricula, and raise schooling rates of girls in isolated or rural areas.
Hawa Wague, the resident representative of the World Bank in Togo, stated that the financing will “contribute to the government’s 2025 roadmap by supporting key projects aimed at raising school capacities and the quality of education, towards increasing the country’s human capital ranking.”
The CFA33 billion project is coming few days after the Togolese government said it would pay school fees of public middle school and high school students for the 2021-2022 academic year.
