AusAID supports UNESCO project in favour of girls and women in Comoros
The Australian development cooperation agency confirmed its support to UNESCO’s project “Enhancement of capacities of Civil Society Organizations (CSO) and national education authorities in the provision of functional literacy for girls and women” during a ceremony held on 14 March 2012. It also endorsed the ILO initiative for youth and women employment in agriculture.
The project aims mainly at setting up pilot initiatives for functional literacy carried out together with Youth and Women CSOs. Not only will it enhance NGOs capacities to have literacy training programmes and material in line with the local context taking into account gender issues, but also it will provide the Ministry of Education with a network of trainers.
