Alinea and the Centre d’étude et de coopération internationale (CECI) are pleased to announce the launch of the Equity Support through Institutional and Technical Reforms Project to strengthen the Basic Education Strategic Development Program (PARITÉ).

PARITÉ will improve the accessibility and quality of education for all young people of Burkina Faso aged 6 to 16 years of age, by supporting the Ministry of National Education and Literacy in the implementation of the second Strategic Development Basic Education Plan (PDSEB). The Project will reduce geographic and gender inequalities; support access to education for out-of-school youth; improve learning through better initial and ongoing teachers training and pedagogical oversight; increase participation of parents and the community in school management and improve financial management, procurement and environmental management to ensure effective reforms.

PARITÉ is a five year, CAD 9.6M project, funded by Global Affairs Canada.
