Description du stage : The GSES II project was initiated in September 2004 following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Canada and Malawi. The project spans over seven years (2004-2010) and includes a total of CAD 20 million CIDA contribution to the Government of Malawi (GoM). The main emphasis of GSES II is to build the capacity of the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training of Malawi (MoEVT) to procure and distribute 10 million units of educational materials to targeted primary schools in Malawi. Unlike past projects, MoEVT is the owner of the GSES II project, and is supported by a team of the Canadian Facilitation Agency (CFA) based in Malawi and Canada.
