Together For A More Inclusive Education
In the Republic of Congo, the gap in access to education and schooling between indigenous populations and other population groups remains a huge challenge. In some parts of the country, up to 65% of indigenous children of primary school age are not in school.
Extreme poverty, social exclusion, lack of birth registration, and ethnic and cultural discrimination in schools all contribute to educational inequalities that threaten the prospects of several generations.
Contributing to social harmony through school canteens
In the Lekoumou, a department in the southwestern part of the Republic of Congo that is home to 20% of the country's indigenous population, there is a primary school that is becoming, day after day, an essential and powerful vector of social harmony.
