Basic Education in Niger
Dubai Cares focused on the improvement of education opportunities for children, especially girls, in the most remote and marginalized communities in 12 high-impact communes. As part of this program, Dubai Cares strengthened government and NGOs’ technical capacities and boosted communityled change of schooling practices vis-à-vis girls and political practices that affect the status of women. Dubai Cares also provided children access to appropriately equipped schools and school supplies, a healthier school environment and quality education encompassing essential life skills. These schools are managed in partnership with communities and families.
