Gambia: Stakeholders in CRR Sensitised On School Improvement Grant

 Crr — The Education For All (EFA Net) in collaboration with partners on Thursday sensitised stakeholders on the School Improvement Grant (SIG) in Janjangbureh, Central River region (CRR). The SIG initiated by the Ministry of Basic and Seconday Education (MoBSE) is aimed at relieving parents of their children's educational expenses at the level of lower basic schools by September 2013. The German backup educative initiative for Africa provides funding for sensitisation programmes on the SIG through the EFANET.

How can we provide enough jobs for young people in Africa?

 The security of Africa’s development is under threat. We cannot afford to exclude young people from economic opportunities. In the short term, however, we need to introduce job-creation programmes. In Nigeria, we have engaged in programmes to create short-term job opportunities, including a community services programme for unskilled youth, and a graduate internship scheme, which will support 50,000 university graduates to acquire work experience in private-sector entities. We also created a special fund to provide grants of up to $70,000 to young entrepreneurs.
