Competencies for Tomorrow in Guinea (CPD)




Supporting youth initiatives for socio-economic change

The COVID-19 pandemic did not disrupt the school year. Prevention and case management measures have been put in place at school level. However, there are still many challenges to be met: 1.6 million children and young people aged between 5 and 16 are outside the education system; 53% of children aged between 5 and 16 living in rural areas have never been to school, compared with 18% in urban areas; the net completion rate is 26.8% in urban areas and 13% in rural areas; the repetition rate is 12% in primary school and 18% in lower secondary school.
