schools in africa

After a very successful first phase (2005-2009) aiming at raising 50 million $ to benefit 4 million children in 6 countries in Africa, Schools for Africa Phase II was launched in 2010 and aims at raising at least a further 70 million $ by 2013 to benefit more children in 11 countries in Africa. Now Phase III is set to launch in 2014 with the aim of raising a further US$80 million for children in 13 countries by 2017.SOS Schools are split between Primary and Secondary Schools. Often, these schools are vital to the education of the local community in which they serve. Nurseries often complement the schools, providing education from a young age. SOS Training Centres are also common in Africa. These specialise in different areas, from technical skills to agricultural skills. In Ghana, SOS Children runs an International College, where children from around Africa get advanced education and the chance to gain qualifications to study at universities around Africa and the rest of the world.they have 185 dollars for schools.The findings are astonishing. There are seven countries in which 40 percent or more of children do not meet a minimum standard of learning by grades 4 or 5. In countries such as Ethiopia, Nigeria and Zambia, over half of in-school students are not learning basic skills by the end of primary school. Through the barometer we aggregate the total number of children not learning based on out-of-school children at the end of primary school, children who are likely to drop out by the 5th grade, and those in school but not learning. The results are distressing. Under the current model, half of sub-Saharan Africa’s total primary school population – 61 million children – will reach adolescence without the basic skills needed to lead successful and productive lives.

While there is much reason to celebrate the progress in education that Africa has made over the past decade, the barometer shows us that there is a deeper learning crisis that needs to beaddressed. Unless African governments and the international community work together and act now to raise standards and improve learning outcomes, the potential of tens of millions of African youth will be wasted and Africa’s social and economic progress will stagnate.consequence, the prognosis for Africa’s future economic growth and social development is poor.

Eastern Africa Consortium for Monitoring Educational Quality (SACMEQ) , and national assessments of 4th or 5th grade students,

Education participation rates in many African countries are low. Schools often lack many basic facilities, suffer from overcrowding and staff being lured away to Western countries by higher pay and better conditions.

consequence, the prognosis for Africa’s future economic growth and social development is poor.
