FAWE Zanzibar to establish first Centre of Excellence


Thursday, 5 November 2009

FAWE Zanzibar has begun preparations to establish its first Centre of Excellence (COE) in line with FAWE’s strategy to establish eight new COEs this year.

A vision workshop, bringing together FAWE Zanzibar, the Ministry of Education, local authorities, community leaders, teachers, students, parents, school management and other stakeholders, was held in Zanzibar from 2 to 4 November 2009 to lay the groundwork for the establishment of the COE in Kijini village. Among the challenges facing school children in the village are lack of electricity, lack of safe drinking water and poor nutrition.

The three-day workshop included sensitisation sessions on FAWE’s gender-responsive school concept and identification and analysis of issues hindering gender-responsiveness in Zanzibar.

Six COEs have been established this year – in Benin, Comoros, Swaziland, Togo, Uganda and Zambia.

FAWE developed the (COE) model in 1999 through which ordinary schools are transformed into gender-responsive schools that offer quality education and pay attention to the physical, academic and social dimensions of both girls’ and boys’ education.
