Breaking Barriers - funded by Norad
Breaking Barriers is a four year, Norad-funded multi country project which seeks to address some of the key barriers that prevent children, especially girls and marginalized children from enjoying their right to free, quality, inclusive public education. The barriers include discrimination, inadequate financing and the proliferation of private, low-cost schools. The project is being implemented in Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria and Tanzania.
The project’s objectives are structured around ActionAid’s 4S framework for education financing, emphasizing the need to ensure that:
- Governments take actions to increase the size of national budgets by raising fair tax
- Governments take actions to increase the share of funds allocated to and spent on free, quality, inclusive public education
- Public education policies, systems and expenditure are sensitive to the rights of girls and marginalised children
- A strong active movement of community and civil society structures effectively scrutinise education budgets and expenditure and hold governments to account for the provision of free, quality, inclusive public education especially for girls and marginalised children.
