The project will be financed from the Bank’s Transition Support Facility and will be implemented over a five-year period by the Chadian Ministry of National Education and Civic Promotion, in coordination with partners involved in the education sector, civil society organisations, and youth organisations. The Chadian government will contribute a non-monetary contribution of $713,000 towards the program.

“Through this financing, the African Development Bank is providing support to the Chadian government to reduce inequalities through access to education – especially for girls. This enables the development of job skills and the improvement of women’s productivity potential through literacy, job training and the development of income-generating activities,” said Soloman Koné, the Bank’s Deputy Director for Central Africa.

The Project aims to help improve access to quality secondary education in a safe and healthy school environment for 5,000 girls as well as train 2,200 teachers and administrative officials.
