Enhancing Access to Education for Out of School Youth in Zimbabwe

By CraigNudelman | November 24th, 2011

Since 2005, Zimbabwe has had a continual decline in the number of children attending both primary and secondary school. Despite various projects to curb this turn of events, these efforts have been limited, resulting in many vulnerable and marginalized children failing to enlist on the various programmes in place to assist them. The goal of the project and World Education Zimbabwe is to improve access to alternative education for children and youth who have dropped out of the formal education system. The project’s objectives are to improve the Out-of-School Model through material development, strengthen linkages with other service providers and coordination with the Ministry of Education, Sport and Arts and Culture (MOESAC) and other stakeholders on out of school programmes; and engage in advocacy activities to raise awareness and mobilize further resources for out-of-school children and youth.  The sustainability of the project is dependent on the government of Zimbabwe’s acceptance of the project, so that vulnerable children can continue to realize their right to education after the Children First Project lifespan.
