Somalia Gets Aid to Educate Children


Monday, September 16, 2013

Somalia, which has one of the lowest primary school enrollment rates in the world, has started a three-year, $117 million, basic education program with financial support from Unicef, Unesco, the U.N. World Food Program and a consortium of international aid agencies.

After two decades of civil war, Somalia has 4.4 million children out of school, according to Unicef. The program, which began this month, aims to bring education to a million children aged 6 to 13.
