Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 aims to ensure access to quality education for all and to promote lifelong learning opportunities.
Provided it is regulated and coordinated by public authorities, the expansion of private education can effectively complement and strengthen public education provision. That is why Proparco participates in the financing of higher education institutions, vocational training centres and universities.
Proparco's investments have 3 main objectives:
- Promoting access to education, especially higher education, by supporting the creation of school networks and university campuses, the development of student loans...
- Supporting the development of quality educational programmes: new curricula, teacher training, etc.
- Strengthening the vocational and technical training offer, in partnership with local businesses, to enable young people to acquire skills that are useful in their civic life and adapted to the needs of the labour market.
