The Ministry of Education has signed a working partnership with its equivalent ministry in Jubaland, Galmudug and South West states.
The agreement, the education ministry said will facilitate smooth management of education and provide a collaboration platform between the National and Federal levels of government.
Education Permanent Secretary Ahmed Hassen Yussuf said the agreement will be instrumental in providing a framework for interaction between the two levels of government.
“With this signing, we will work closely with the State Ministries of Education, with the main goal of ensuring a strong education sector that will benefit all age-groups in Somalia.”
The European Union which supports the arrangement welcomed the agreement as an important step forward to ensuring Somali children get quality education.
“The EU is committed to increasing participation of children, youth and adults in all levels of public education in Somalia; and with the signing of this cooperation framework, the building blocks for a peaceful and economically viable Somali society have been laid”, said the EU Ambassador to Somalia, Michele Cervone d’Urso.
The project is facilitated by the aid agency ADRA.
