Aga Khan Foundation’s Madrasa Resource Centre Schools: Plugging the schooling gaps in Tanzania

madrasa-akfA new report by the Global Campaign for Education (GCE) has called for more programmes which support bringing marginalised children into school.

In its ‘Equity and inclusion for all in education’ report, the GCE found that while there was focus on ensuring more girls attended school, there were still too many barriers for other disadvantaged children. Speaking to The Guardian, one of the report’s contributors said “increasing the number of girls in education is welcome, [but] government policy is failing other marginalised groups such as disabled children, ethnic minorities, street children and those living in very remote areas”. However, the report’s authors conceded that in certain countries, such as Tanzania, support programmes run by the UK’s Department for International Development which were aimed at girls’ education, also improved the situation for vulnerable and marginalised children.
