EOI – African Education Fund (AEF) Coordinator - AHHD


The AEF is a proposal for a unique, Africa-initiated, continental level education fund designed, owned, led and managed by Africans. Its main purpose is to provide strategic support for the development of more efficient and effective education systems that are financially and environmentally sustainable and to encourage innovative financing and fiscal reforms. The AEF feasibility study and its operationalization have been funded by the Government of Japan. The overarching goal seeking to attain is to enhance skills and human resources development in Africa by providing quality education through AEF under the Bank’s High 5s agenda (i.e. “Feed Africa”, “Light up Africa”, “Industrialize Africa”, “Integrate Africa” and “Improve the quality of life of the people of Africa”).This goal is in line with the strategic objectives of the African Union’s Continental Education Strategy for Africa 2016-2025 (CESA 16-25) and the Association for the Development of Education for Africa (ADEA)’s five-year strategic plan. The AEF is led by the AUC with technical and financial support from the AfDBas well as ADEA and the Government of Japan in the design process.
