Côte d'Ivoire women in training and education to give them employment oppurtunities

Côte d'Ivoire

Our work in Côte d'Ivoire seeks to improve the well-being of women and their families in Bingerville and Abobo.

National Summary

Since the country emerged from a period of prolonged conflict in 2011, the education system has been expanding rapidly, however, education in Côte d’Ivoire continues to face many challenges.  

Although the adult literacy rate has increased in recent years, it remains low at 43.91% and shows a big gap between sexes.

Inequality is also reflected in the workplace and in the economy. Women’s employment positions in Côte d’Ivoire seem to be limited, women’s lack of education compared to men reduces their employment opportunities.
