Côte d’Ivoire

Mission context

Following a decade of political crisis, which ended in 2011, with a heavy human and material toll, the socio-economic environment in Côte d’Ivoire deteriorated sharply. Despite the recovered stability since 2012, the Ivorian population remains vulnerable; inequalities are increasing, water-borne diseases are proliferating in large urban areas and health conditions are worrying. While the October 2015 presidential election and national reconciliation efforts are a step forward towards greater stability and growth in the country, there is still a long way to go.

ACTED in Côte d’Ivoire

In Côte d’Ivoire, ACTED contributes to the creation of a facilitating environment for social and economic development and works towards poverty and inequality reduction. ACTED continues to support development with a project improving access to pre-school, primary and secondary education in the sub-prefectures of Boundiali and Ganaoni through a three-pronged approach: the construction of eight primary schools, community mobilization around these schools, and community mobilization at the level of the four local colleges.
