Promotion and modelling of educational bridges in Niger (PASS EDUC)




Improving access and retention of excluded children in education

The adoption of barrier gestures allowed the normal continuation of the learning cycle in the bridge centres and schools.

In early 2021, the project area suffered arson attacks on huts used as classrooms in several schools, both in rural and urban areas, including the capital, Niamey.
