World Bank’s IDA to invest $60M in Togo to improve education quality

(Togo First) - The World Bank approved last Thursday the disbursement of $60 million (about CFA33 billion) by the International Development Association (IDA) to support education in Togo. The funds will enable the implementation of the “Improving Quality and Equity of Basic Education Project” in Togo. 

The monies will be injected into the government’s 2020-2030 Education Sectoral Plan. This was disclosed in a statement released by the World Bank, and obtained by Togo First. 

In detail, some of the funds will “boost primary and middle school education, as well as improve the overall management of the education system.”  Part will also be used to build classrooms, train teachers, reform curricula, and raise schooling rates of girls in remote areas. 

Hawa Wague, the resident representative of the World Bank in Togo, declared regarding the financing that it will “contribute to the government’s 2025 roadmap by supporting key projects aimed at raising school capacities and the quality of education, towards increasing the country’s human capital ranking.”

The project, let’s recall, was announced a few days after the Togolese government said it would pay school fees of public middle school and high school students for the 2021-2022 academic year.
