UNICEF grants US$4 million for Papua

An effort to improve the quality of education in Papua.

UNICEF says it has allocated US$4 million for the development of educational programs in Papua and West Papua provinces for the 2010-2012 period.

The support is being provided in an effort to improve the quality of education offered in the two provinces, said Sri Karna, a member of the UN body’s education staff in Biak.

Sri said the funding was intended to finance various programs, including school-based management and strategic education planning.

UNICEF was also closely monitoring the educational programs of other provinces, particularly Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam and East Nusa Tenggara, she said.
