Ethiopia's higher-education boom

Ethiopia’s higher education infrastructure has mushroomed in the last 15 years. But the institutions suffer from curricula being abandonded due to funding cuts, unqualified – but party-loyal – lecturers, and shoddily built institutions. The rapid growth of Ethiopia’s higher education system has come at a cost, but it is moving forward all the same.

Twenty years ago the Ethiopian government launched a huge and ambitious development strategy that called for “the cultivation of citizens with an all-round education capable of playing a conscious and active role in the economic, social, and political life of the country”. One of the principal results of Ethiopia’s agricultural development-led industrialisation strategy (ADLI) has been a rapid expansion in the country’s higher education system. In 2000 there were just two universities, but since then the country has built 29 more, with plans for another 11 to be completed within two years.

Addis Ababa University



Djibouti boasting a digital telecommunications network and connections to the rest of the 
world through undersea optical fibre that are much admired in the region. Two-thirds of the 
population is urban, and ICT services are readily available in urban areas . The country has a 
good relationship with most western donors. All these factors support Djibouti’s efforts to 
modernise their education sector. 

With an ongoing reform programme, Djibouti has mostly focused on developing and 
improving the physical infrastructure and other non-ICT resources, including building new 
classrooms and providing textbooks. In higher education, a key focus has been on producing 
skilled teachers and encouraging out-of-school youths to get vocational training. At a policy 
level, ICT is a component of the national ICT policy, which was developed by the Ministry of 
Communication. Djibouti needs a sector-specific policy for the adoption of ICT in education, 
together with an implementation plan that will take advantage of the available enablers 
including the telecommunication network.

Djibouti has been ranked the Arab world’s most expensive city for expatriates, according to a new survey by global consultant Mercer.

Declining property prices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai pushed both cities down on Mercer’s Worldwide Cost of Living Survey 2012, ranking third and fourth in the Arab world and 76th and 81 among 124 cities.

“On the whole, most Middle Eastern cities have dropped in the ranking, mainly because price increases on goods and services have been more moderate here than in our benchmark city, New York,” Nathalie Constantin-Métral, principal at Mercer, said in a statement.

“Slight decreases in expatriate accommodation costs were also observed in Abu Dhabi and Dubai,” she added.

The annual survey, based on a basket of everyday items including the price of a cup of coffee, one litre of petrol and the cost to rent a two-bedroom apartment, ranked Beirut third most expensive city in the Arab League and 67 globally.

Tokyo was awarded the top spot as the world’s most expensive city followed by Luanda in Angola, Osaka, Moscow and Geneva. At the other end of the list, Karachi remained the cheapest for the second year running, behind Islamabad (123) and Managua (122).

Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Ethiopia

Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Ethiopia

Addis Ababa – Retrak helping boys move off the streets – 11 Apr 2015

Between April 2014 and March 2015 Retrak served 13 boys in its Vocational Training Program in Addis Ababa. This was two more than their original goal of 11 boys. As of January 2015 eleven of them are still enrolled in the program.

Boys who live on the street before joining Retraks vocational training.

Five boys found jobs in different garment companies after successfully finishing their VOT. Retrak encourages and helps the boys to keep their jobs. The experience of finding new jobs after completing the VOT has had a major impact on boys’ aspirations.

One of the independent young boys has decided to open a garment shop. To do so he is thinking of purchasing all the equipment required to set up his business, such as a sewing machine. Retrak staff encouraged him to develop his entrepreneurial project, since it is a way to achieve economic independence.  Retrak staff visits the other boys every Monday to pay their living expenses and check whether they have any concerns.

Over the course of last year, two boys dropped out from VOT and returned to the streets. Retrak is aiming to visit the boys enrolled with the program on a weekly basis to talk with them about any concerns they may have in order to prevent them from resigning from the program.

Retrak is improving its programming by recruiting community mentors to support recent VOT graduates. In December ten community mentors from local churches were selected to be part of the volunteering program. After a careful assessment, the volunteer mentors were successfully trained on basic mentorship and matched with recent graduates. One of these mentors is a VOT graduate who lives independently.

One enrolled student dropped out of the VOT program because his older brother, who is a professional engineer, offered him a place to live and work.  Retrak staff spoke to him about not dropping out of his training. However, he was happy to be close to his brother again. Retrak offered another boy his place at the VOT training center to replace this vacancy.
