The Government of Lao People’s Democratic Republic has received a Grant for financing in the amount of US$ 30,000,000 equivalent from Fast Track Initiative (EFA-FTI) Catalytic Trust Fund toward the cost of the Education for All Fast Track Initiative Catalytic Fund Program,, and it intends to apply part of the proceeds to payments for goods and work; and consulting services to be procured under this program.

The Program Development Objective (PDO) is to support the Government of Lao People’s Democratic Republic (GOL) to increase the coverage and improve the quality of Pre-Primary and Primary education with a focus on the most educationally disadvantaged children in 56 districts of 16 provinces. The Program consists of the following components:

Component A: Access and Quality for Pre-Primary and Primary Education:

This component would provide a set of interventions that are directed towards ensuring that the greatest possible number of children of Primary school-going age in Lao People’s Democratic Republic would be assured of having access to a minimum standard of education along six dimensions of educational quality: a) Inclusive of all children; b) Effective teaching and learning; c) Healthy, safe and protective school environment; d) Gender; e) Local ownership and community participation; and f) Effective school management and leadership. In some cases, the community is too remote and small in size to justify the investment required to establish and maintain a school. Presently, the MOE has a policy instrument (the non-formal equivalency framework 2005) and some experience in implementation. This program will help the MOE to revise the framework and begin implementation.

Component B: Stewardship of Education Sector at Local, Provincial and Central Levels:
This component would provide financing to strengthen the MOE’s policy framing and policy implementation capacity through all levels of government. It would supplement the available financing to what is now the Project Management Unit (PMU) of the EDP II project and would seek to improve MOE capabilities to implement the ESDF. The PMU currently undertakes a ‘coordination’ rather than ‘implementation’ role. This program-based approach will be further cemented by the evolution of this office into the ‘ESDF Coordination Unit’. Program activities will be integrated into the day to day work of MOE line departments, while the ESDF Coordination Unit will undertake a coordination role with the line departments and a liaison function with Development Partners
