Project Description
The objective of the Additional Financing for the Education Sector Support Project for Mozambique is to improve access to and quality and equity of education. No changes to the PDO are proposed in the restructuring. The AF will support the existing ESSP by responding to an anticipated shortfall in funding to the education sector due to the current financial and economic crisis in Mozambique, and scaling up existing key activities that will have direct impacts on supporting the most vulnerable during this time of financial instability. The AF would help achieve the overall project development objective (PDO) to improve access to, and quality and equity of education, by continuing to support the implementation of Mozambique’s current Education Strategic Plan (PEE in Portuguese) from 2016 to 2019. As with the original project, the AF will continue to be channeled through the Education Sector Support Fund (FASE, in Portuguese) funded by nine (9) donors (including the Global Partnership for Education - GPE) to support effective implementation of the PEE.
