Access to education for all children in Mali (PACETEM)




Improving access to quality primary education for out-of-school children

On the educational front, the main issue in 2021 was the reopening of schools closed due to the security crisis. In November 2021, 1 621 schools were closed, affecting 9 726 teachers and 486 300 students. The national education conference, held in December 2021, recommended matching the education system to the labour market, as well as access to basic social services for people with disabilities.
