how did education help
How did education help
  • Education helps to see the reconstruction of the country as a “Project for a common future”
  • Education helps to reconstruct a Burundian identity
  • It creates “National Cohesion”
  • It reconstructs a “Society based on human capital”
  • Population is involved in all stages of development of education sector
  • Education has become a programme for “openness to cultural diversity”
back to my message
Back to my message

« Burundi is becoming

a prouder, stronger and

more resilient country

through stronger systems

in the education sector »

  • The education system has shown resilience
  • But, more important, the country has become more resilient by and through a strong education sector
what does it mean for our partners
What does it mean for our partners
  • Donors in post-conflict countries have different attitudes than in “normal” development countries
  • Donors should assist countries in “challenging circumstances” to evolve quickly to a normal development phase (instead of staying in the emergency or transitional logic)
  • Our Education basket fund has problems of absorption capacity, due to very heavy procedures (non-objection ex ante)
