Abstract:

The purpose of the paper is to show the contribution of Pact and its partner NGOs in promoting basic education in order to meet the EFA goals by 2015/16. Pact Ethiopia has undertaken a comprehensive USAID funded alternative basic education (ABE) program that seeks to meet the needs of unreached peripheral communities by using flexible approach to education. Pact in partnership with local NGOs has been implementing its ABE activities in eight Regional states since 1998..
The USAID/Pact ABE program in the last fifteen years reached over 210000 children and about 70000 adults in over 1000 villages across the country and it recruited 2300 facilitators with the collaboration of the local community, targeting those who have completed grade eight or above. These facilitators were provided with pre service short trainings by partners NGOs and in-service training by Regional Colleges of Teacher Trainings.
One of the challenges of this program has been textbook shortage. And to ameliorate the situation /Pact together with partner NGOs and Government Education Offices has been supporting curriculum and text book development and printing as well as provision of supplementary materials..
Over 1000 communities were also involved in the construction and upgrading of alternative basic education centers. Community members contribute labor and local materials while /Pact through its partners provides construction materials and technical support. Once constructed the centers are managed by center management committees comprised of parents. The committees recruit facilitators oversee school management, determine class schedule.
Pact has also provided trainings for over 700 government education offices in cooperation with a local NGO called ANFEAE. This paper helps to engage in dialogue with participants of CIES in order to envision the civic society future direction in the development of the education sector in post 2015/16 period.
