In its move to ensure the entrenchment of gender responsive and inclusive education sector, vis a vis the reformation of Tsangaya system of education, in Adamawa State, the Forum For African Women Educationalist (FAWE) Nigeria with support from PLAN International EU-INTPA project has trained no fewer than 15 Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in Adamawa State.

The training which was carried out in two clusters of four days each has equipped the CSOs with the rudiments and nuances of how to engage the state actors constructively in promoting the two agenda.

Shedding light on the rationale for the eight days training, the education officer FAWE Nigeria, Ibrahim Bello said, the objective of the training is to enhance the capacity of civil society actors to be able to engage government stakeholders on gender responsive and inclusive education sector planning as well as tsangaya education reformation.

“It is believed that when CSOs have the necessary capacity, they will be able to advocate for a more gender responsive education policy and advocate for the transformation of the tsangaya system which we commonly called the almajiri system of education.

“We are training 80 participants from 15 CSOs and 2 Youth groups. Because of the size of the participants we have to cluster them into two groups. Each has four days of training.

“The training on gender responsive and education sector planning component is for two days and training on tsangaya transformation is also for two days which makes it four days for each cluster,” he noted.

He said the training will equip the CSOs with the capacity to analyze the education sector plan, to engage the state actors in a seamless manner through advocacies and to understand the gaps in the two thematic areas and to evolve robust measures to address the identified gaps.

Bello expressed confidence that with the knowledge acquired, there will be rapid changes in the two areas of concern adding that in the nearest foreseeable future, there will be drastic reduction in the number of out of school children and more gender friendly education policies will be emplaced in the state.

Some of the topics taught during the sessions include, understanding the education sector plan, gender and gender analysis, analysis of education sector plan of Adamawa State, skills building, effective community mobilization amongst others.

Appreciating FAWE, the CSOs vow to use the skills learnt to better the lot of education in the state in view of the critical roles it plays in peace building and development of every society.
