Providing children with the widest possible access to education is still one of the greatest challenges in Developing Countries, since the “return” of education is delayed and many families (have to) prioritize the immediate labor force of children over their education.
Many Development Projects therefore aim to enable the acquisition of basic school equipment (such as books, pens etc.) and school infrastructure (such as tables, blackboards and chairs, but also computers, tablets and the like) or simply to cover the teachers’ salaries in whole or in part.
In order for these subsidy systems to be as effective as possible, they must not only be transparent and comprehensible, but they must also involve the private sector and parents in their decision-making matrix.
The return on a development project in the field of education is difficult to measure and can only be measured with a long time lag.
This makes it all the more crucial for this type of Development Aid to design and implement an incentive system that starts at the level of all decision-makers, i.e. in particular the parents, the school authorities and the private sector, which employs the parents and later the educated children.
The expertise of RODEVA can support International Organizations, Donors and Governments of the participating countries in order to create an incentive system by which the invested Development Funds promote education in a sustainable way and thus enable the beneficiaries to help themselves most efficiently in the form of future economic independence. Here, RODEVA and its partners benefit from RODEVA’s many years of experience in subsidies / incentive systems in the fields Agriculture and Healthcare.
