Quality Education is one of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. Education is a key factor to escaping poverty. Despite progress made in the last decade, nearly one fifth of the global population in the relevant age group has no access to schools. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic now jeopardizes hard won gains made in improving global education.
In this context it is even more important that in Niger, one of the poorest countries worldwide, more than 200 new classrooms could be handed over to the beneficiaries despite the pandemic in the final stage of the construction.
The project was carried out in Niamey as well as in the rural regions of Tillabéri and Tahoua, both partly very remote and characterised by unstable security. It included the construction of primary school classrooms, latrines and housing for teachers, as well as equipping school furniture and equipment for servicing, maintenance and education. The project created 126 classrooms in Niamey and 120 classrooms in the rural regions of Tillabéry and Tahoua, providing a total of 12,600 school places in 41 primary schools.
The Programme further included accompanying measures for the promotion of girls’ schooling as well as strengthening the communities, namely by empowering the local parent committees in the creation of activities in the new school buildings to generate additional income. These measures contribute to more confidence in the value of education and to solving the problems of the schooling of their children.
As the implementation consultant we are proud to support the Ministry of Agricultural Development not only in reduction of land degradation and erosion in the “Biji catchment area” as well as in fostering agricultural and pastoral productivity but additionally, in establishing water harvesting measures for livestock and household consumption.
As a part of the “Programa Sectorial de Alcantarillado y Tratamiento de Aguas Residuales en Ciudades de Provincias del Perú“ (Program PTAR financed by German Financial Cooperation through KfW) and of the P “Programa Nacional de Saneamiento Urbano (PNSU)“, we are proud to render services in the project for Chimbote and Nuevo Chimbote working together with the Ministerio de Vivienda, Construcción y Saneamiento (Client) and with SEDACHIMBOTE S.A (Beneficiary) in improving environmental conditions under consideration of climate change risks to the Chimbote Bay as basis for a sustainable development of the sanitation and social-economic sector.
We believe in improving living conditions and that stable and balanced societies need well-functioning public infrastructure
A multinational team of CES experts did not only supply urgently required building and workman’s material but also carried out several renovation works by themselves. The works were implemented in cooperation with patient local craftsmen. Besides painting works, new benches for the kindergarten were crafted and painted, new basketball hoops and goal nets were installed and more than 20 trees have been planted in the school garden. The upgrade of the sanitary and water supply facilities was done by a local construction company.
This year we decided to use our annual donation for upgrading a school located in El Khatara Al Soghra Village in Sharkia/Egypt. The identification of this specific school was the result of a stages wise selection process. In a first step, 12 schools were identified. After several site visits to the proposed schools, the Shaeer primary and preparatory School with a nursery in Sharkia Governorate has been selected in cooperation between CES experts and Sharkia PIU. The school is located in El Khatara Al Soghra Village.
A committee for the school renovation has been established to identify the required works. The committee consisted of: School Headmaster, Representatives for school teachers, Representatives for Parents Board and a Representative for Local Municipality Unit “Contact Person” .
