Background and rationale
The Republic of Djibouti is a small country in East Africa, located at the entrance to the Red Sea, between Eritrea ( North ), Ethiopia ( West ) and Somalia ( South ) with an area of 23,200 Km ². The total population in 2017 was estimated at 948,249 inhabitants, of which around 40% are children ( 0-18 years ). Djibouti has an urbanization rate of more than 70% ( with 60 % in the capital ) and a movement of rural exodus continued due to the weakness of the economy in rural areas and a constant influx of migrants from neighboring countries.
Many past or ongoing initiatives in Djibouti have worked or are working on the inclusion of the most vulnerable populations in the education system and on improving the quality of the system. The economic and financial empowerment of women and other vulnerable populations has also been the subject of many recent efforts, notably through the Ministry of Women and the Family ( MFF ), the Ministry of Youth and Culture ( MJC ), and the Ministry of National Education and Vocational Training ( MENFOP ), supported by external funding. These initiatives are supported by a political framework favorable to the education and empowerment of girls and vulnerable populations, set up by MENFOP, the Ministry of Health,MFF and MJC and supported by a variety of strategic documents, including :
- Vision Djibouti 2035 ;
- The National Child Policy ;
- MENFOP regional education plans ;
- The National Teacher Policy.e.s ( PNE ) ;
- The National Gender Policy 2011-2021 ;
- The National Health Development Plan ( PNDS ) 2020-2024 ;
- The National Employment Policy ( NPNE ) ;
- The National Strategy for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Schools
