Prototype primary schools in rural GUINEA:

In collaboration with the national school construction service of Guinea, UNESCO Dakar, with financing from IDA through a national project loan, constructed prototype primary schools in four different rural settings.

The aim of this project was not only to provide a sample of functional facilities, but also to test the abilities of local artisans to construct a school building at low cost

Results of this research are being utilized for normsetting in the framework of the "Structural Readjustment of the Education Sector in Guinea".

Upon completion of this project a document was published jointly by UNESCO Dakar and the Guinean Ministry of Education:

"The final Report of the Prototype Construction Project".
