Mauritania - Education Sector Development Program Project : restructuring (Vol. 2) : Data sheet (English)

Overall the Catalytic Fund (CF) will help the Government of Mauritania to accelerate the implementation of the Government's Education Sector Development Program (ESDP 2001-2015) in its entirety. Activities financed by the CF are within the ESDP's plan of action over the period 2008-2010. The project has made significant progress and is poised to achieve a 100 percent disbursement of grant proceeds through the six month extension. However, a few important activities have incurred unforeseen delays: a) primary school construction that experienced delays due to heavy rain; b) delivery of three million textbooks for the three coming school years; and c) 30,000 student desks. Therefore, an extension of the closing date will ensure completion of those activities. The additional time will allow the project to finalize activities that will support progress towards achieving project development objective (PDO) by: 1) creating additional spaces for students and thus increasing the total number of beneficiaries (including girls): and 2) creating a better learning environment that will entice students to stay in school by providing additional student desks and textbooks.
