In Niger, school books are costly and many pupils can’t afford them. RAEDD, thanks to various partnerships, published several school books to improve the situation.
Personal and Social Education.
This textbook was financed by the Spanish International Cooperation Agency for Development; it deals with health education, sexuality, family life and transmitting life.
It has been used within the Sex Equality Project as well as in the Cesson Dankassari decentralized cooperation, to train primary and secondary school teachers.
They contain selected texts for 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th graders, and were written in French, mostly by African authors. The Rennes City Council contributed financially.
