* UNICEF and ‘Dubai Cares’ aim to improve classroom conditions in Djibouti

School is in but there's not too much to sing about at Hadj Dideh primary school in Djibouti. Old classrooms are run down and falling apart. The library is in urgent need of new books and facilities for water and sanitation are poor. These are the conditions for learning 11 year old Arid and his classmates’ experience. SOUNDBITE: ARID, 11 years: “The toilets are broken, the plumbing doesn't work. There's faeces everywhere and the walls have been vandalised.”


But Arid and his classmates won't have to wait too long to see some improvements at their school including new books and equipment such as computers. Arid's school will be one the first to be rehabilitated in Djibouti through a partnership between UNICEF and Dubai Cares - a Gulf based initiative that has raised one billion dollars to help educate one million children in poor countries.


With the support of Dubai Cares, UNICEF is working to improve classroom conditions and the quality of teaching but also increase access to education and ensure children complete their schooling - particular girls. Although nearly 130-thousand children in Djibouti are old enough to go to primary school, tens of thousands are not enrolled.


SOUNDBITE: ALOYS KAMURAGIYE, UNICEF DJIBOUTI COUNTRY REPRESENTATIVE:
“Dubai Cares is about supporting Djibouti to achieve the Millennium Development goal two and three, which are about access to universal
quality education and gender parity.” New schools are also under construction to serve children in remote rural communities. The settlement of Karta lies some 75 kilometres from Djibouti and is populated by the pastoral tribes of the Ado Rassu. Water is scarce. And, like hundreds of others, goat herder Gueda Gadito and his family are now living at Karta where they can access water brought in every week by road. Gueda's three sons have never seen a school. Apart from a mosque Karta has no buildings or social services. Gueda hopes his sons, can have an education
- something he never had the chance to experience.


SOUNDBITE: GUEDA GADITO, FATHER:
“This is something really incredible. Because even here, we have radio and we know that people all over the world gain what they have through education. The fact that I will see a school here in my lifetime, it's important, and it will improve our quality of life and benefit my children.”


The Dubai Cares project aims to boost school enrolment in Djibouti from 66 to 75 per cent by the end of 2009. Soon, for many children a new school and quality education will help not only help fulfil their basic child rights but also provide a life changing experi
