51. Quality education for all children of Nguigmi
In Niger, in 2012 less than 30% of the school-age children (aged 5 to 14) were in school (source: World Bank) In addition, those who attend school do not receive a quality education and do not acquire the necessary knowledge to continue their studies in secondary. Up to 2/3 even more of those who complete primaries do not master reading, writing and calculation. The rate of drop out is 90% of which 70% are girls.
Although the Nigerien government declares the effective gratuity of schooling up to age 16, this remains far from reality because parents need to continue to pay for school equipment.
The area is threatened by the Boko Haram group and school drop outs are obvious targets for the revolutionary propaganda of the extremist group.
