Working together in Papua New Guinea
In Papua New Guinea, around half of primary school-aged children are out of school. A lack of qualified teachers and facilities continues to be a problem throughout the country; an issue that is especially acute in remote areas, where providing teachers is a big challenge. Where there are no teachers, schools simply close, leaving many children out of school.
For candidate countries (Albania, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey) and potential candidates (Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo), the EU provides both financial and technical support.
