Regional-Context of EFA Campaigns

EFA Progress towards 2015

  • Between 1999 and 2005, the number of new entrants in primary education in SSA rose by 40% (29 million). However, demographic pressure will remain a challenge throughout the next decade when the primary school age population is expected to grow by 22%.
  • Gender disparities have been reduced in the region particularly in primary education, but not eliminated. Only Mauritius and Seychelles have achieved Gender Parity for both Primary and Secondary education, by 2005

slide12

Regional-Context of EFA Campaigns

  • SSA had about 2.5 million primary school teachers in 2005, an increase of nearly 500,000 since 1999.
  • FTI has received appreciation as a concrete initiative for accelerating EFA achievements.

EFA Challenges for AFRICA

  • With nearly 33 million children of primary school age still not enrolled in school, SSA as a whole was home to 45% of the world’s out of school children, in 2005, of whom 54% were girls.
  • Many a child still suffers from exclusion in provision of education. For example, chances of a disabled child not being in school are two to three times greater than for a child who is not disabled in Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
