Keeping Vulnerable Children in School
Evidence of A Successful Community Savings Model
To capture the project’s accomplishments throughout implementation, ACCELERE!1 (A!1) created a four-part series of technical briefs addressing fundamental issues of access, equity, and quality in education in the DRC, in support of USAID’s Self Reliance, Inclusion, Systems Strengthening, and Equity strategies.
- Keeping vulnerable children in school: Evidence of A Successful Community Savings Model.
- Low-Cost Private Schools in the DRC: Needs, challenges and recommendations to improve access and quality for all.
- Book Supply Chain – Real costs of getting Teaching and Learning Materials into children’s hands.
- From Robust Formative Assessments to Positive EGRA Results: An Overview of Challenges and Recommendations to improve early grade reading in the DRC.
This Technical Brief, a first in a series of four, describes the pressing challenges of access to education faced by Congolese students and their parents. It covers the issues around school fees, in particular for vulnerable families, the impact on their children, and the solution A!1, a USAID-UKAID-funded project, implemented to address the challenge.
