Eni's contribution to quality education in Côte d'Ivoire

African teacher hands out classroom books to pupils

In the Sud-Comoé region and Port-Bouët municipality, we are rolling out a programme to promote access to quality education by improving learning and modernising schools, benefiting students in 20 primary and 2 secondary schools. Planned initiatives include the provision of teaching materials, the launch of family outreach programmes and teacher training courses.

Located in the Baleine development area, the project aims to help reduce the lack of educational skills affecting a very significant number of students in Côte d’Ivoire. Added to this are population growth and the introduction of compulsory schooling, resulting in increased enrolment and overcrowding in the country's educational institutions.

Project actions and objectives

Quality for primary education

Recipients of the project to promote access to quality education and to contribute to the improvement of learning are 20 public schools in Port-Bouët (Abidjan District) and in the South-Comoé region, the areas within the Baleine Phase 1 Development Area of Influence Phase 1. The interventions involved the full renovation of 8 schools in Port-Bouët, including the construction of sports fields, and the functional refurbishment of 12 other schools in Port-Bouët and in the Sud-Comoé region, with new sanitary facilities and connection to the electricity grid. Access to electricity and water is now a reality in facilities that previously lacked these essential services.In addition, all schools were equipped with new desks, mobile libraries, books and computer equipment, as well as stationery and hygiene items according to the schools' needs. The programme is aimed both at students, who are provided with new teaching materials and the opportunity to attend remedial courses, and at teachers and families. Teachers are provided with training and capacity-building courses, and families are involved in education promotion in their home communities. To consolidate what has been achieved, the project also aims to strengthen the Ministry of Education structures in the region and to train ministerial pedagogical advisors and counsellors.

Programmes for local students and professionals

The training of local students and professionals is a priority in the countries where we operate. In Côte d'Ivoire, by virtue of an agreement with the Institut National Polytechnique Felix Houphouet-Boigny (INP HB) and Eni Corporate University, we are promoting two one-year master's degrees in the upstream and downstream sectors. Further agreements aim to develop technical training for the maintenance of the Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit and to provide four scholarships for the best students to attend a master's degree course sponsored by us.
