New Partnership for African Education (NEPAD)

NEPAD is supporting the development of distance education in partnership with the University of South Africa, the African Virtual University in Kenya, the National Open University of Nigeria and the Commonwealth of Learning in Canada. The focus is primarily on teacher training and development in a number of African countries. It is also supporting the preparation of post-conflict education strategies for Mozambique, the DRC, Angola and Rwanda. The other very important initiative is the expansion of science, math and technology education centre in Nairobi, Kenya, into a NEPAD regional project. The key development partner in these initiatives is Japan.
