Papua New Guinea
Education is critical to enabling a stronger, more prosperous Papua New Guinea. To do this, improving enrolments and retention in school is important. There are also considerable issues that need to be addressed in terms of the quality of teaching and learning materials. Primary schools face the challenge of implementing the new Standards Based Curriculum. The Standard Based Curriculum are national standards designed for all students across PNG and includes numeracy and literacy benchmarks.
The aim of this project is to improve access to quality primary school education in the remote, disadvantaged communities of Papua New Guinea and increase the enrolment and retention of girls in primary schools.
The objectives of this project are:

Aligned with CARE’s long-term strategy, a more integrated network of schools, government and education stakeholders at the Province, District, and Ward level can collectively address constraints to and improve supply of training, tools and supervision to remote communities. The outcomes and supporting strategies of this project have a high likelihood of achieving long-term sustainability within the rural highlands of PNG.
