3 Priorities for Education in Nepal

Video of the week

In this video interview, Secretary Biswha Prakash Pandit of the Nepalese Ministry of Education says his country chose three priorities to improve education:

  1. Increase access to school for all children
  2. Enhance the quality of education that children receive
  3. Link good education outcomes with employment opportunities.

Thanks to a US$120 million grant from the Global Partnership, the Nepalese government has been able to make impressive progress in reaching these goals. For example, the grant helped to train 43,000 teachers and build more than 11,000 early childhood education centers.

The fact that the GPE grant contributed to a pooled fund, where Nepal grouped the contributions from various donors, allowed the country to focus on the most pressing needs in the education sector.
