Education in Emergency Situation Support Project
USAID-EESA's rapid analysis of education needs in Mali
As a prelude to the baseline of the EESA project study, in June 2016 USAID Mali, through CAMRIS International, asked a research firm to conduct a study entitled Rapid Analysis of Education Needs. This study took place from July to October 2016 in the regions of Mopti, Segou, Timbuktu, GAO and Kidal. This study is intended to accompany the Government of Mali in the implementation of its priority action plan, particularly the Ministry of Education 2014-2016 interim plan.
To this end, USAID has developed a support project to education in emergency situation to ensure access to basic education to 80,000 students and to strengthen the educational system in the areas affected by the March 2012 conflict. The fast analysis of educational needs will therefore allow USAID to better determine which schools to rebuild or rehabilitate, and to identify relevant educational activities to undertake in order to enable the people harshly tested by conflict/crisis to build peace and sustainable social cohesion.
