The “Ethiopia General Education Quality Improvement Project” is a project that works to make sure Ethiopian students have the resources they need to obtain a quality education. To summarize, the goal is “improving learning conditions in primary and secondary schools and strengthening of institutions at different levels of educational administration.”
The World Bank approved the project in 2013 and it became effective in 2014. The project will continue on for 4 years. The project in the past few years accomplished some incredible work in Ethiopia with regards to education.
