Togo gets €15M from AFD for its education sector

(Togo First) - The French Development Agency (AFD) has granted Togo €15 million to support its education sector, in the framework of the Junior High School Reform Project -PAREC II.

The monies should help improve upon capacities and infrastructures in public junior high schools in the Maritime, Plateaux and Savanes regions. More than 160 schools should benefit from the scheme.

In effect, exactly 92 junior high schools will have new classrooms built while 75 will be modernized using the funds.

PAREC II is a project that will be deployed over a four-year period. It includes three main parts, knowingly the construction of 389 new classrooms with sanitary and administrative facilities, support for projects that foster an inclusive, safe and gender-sensitive schooling environment (for girls especially), as well as the reinforcement of capacities, across the whole nation, of nearly 4,000 school directors and teachers (volunteers and under contract).

The financing agreement was signed in Lomé on November 4, 2019. On Togo's side was Sani Yaya, minister of economy and finances, while the French party was represented by Marc Vizy, ambassador of France to Togo, and François Jacquier, AFD's country-director.
