Poster Interagency Education WSF2011

FAWE’s West Africa sub-Regional Office (FAWE-WASRO) has joined Plan and other partner organisations of the Inter-Agency Group on Education for West and Central Africa in organising a series of activities to highlight challenges in African education at the World Social Forum being held in Dakar, Senegal from 6 to 11 February 2011.



Through panel discussions, roundtables, press conferences, exhibitions, concerts and a street march, the Inter-Agency Group on Education is seeking to not only give voice to civil society on the issues and challenges in education in the West Africa region, but to encourage partnerships and synergies in actions and advocacy geared towards supporting education in the region.



FAWE-WASRO and Plan will organise a series of panel discussions under the main theme ‘Free quality public education available for all’. Panel discussions will take place each day and will include:

  • Ending violence against girls
  • Inclusive education
  • Financing education in West Africa
  • Children speak out
  • ICTs and quality of education
FAWE Executive Committee member Dr Fatou Sarr Sow will be one of the invited panellists.

The Inter-Agency Group on Education brings together civil society organisations who work on education-related issues. Member organisations include FAWE, ANCEFA, Plan, ActionAid, World Vision, Save the Children, Oxfam, Handicap International and Oneworld UK. Together, they advocate for:

  • Efficient long-term planning which respects the right to education
  • Equity at the core of education policy
  • Adequate funding and renewed governance
  • Inclusive education for all children and all adults in all contexts
