Joint efforts between the Government of Djibouti (GORD) and USAID to implement Djibouti’s education reform have produced remarkable results and laid the foundation for the establishment of the much needed human resource base in the country. The USG continued assisting the GORD to meet its “Education for All” goals by 2015, and the GORD demonstrated its commitment to increased access and improved quality of education by committing 25% of its national budget to education, an increase from 17.5% in 1999. In FY 09, USAID consolidated program activities to focus on teacher training, Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs), an education information management system, and training for out-of-school youth.
