THE STATE OF EDUCATION IN AFRICA – SETTING PRIORITIES FOR
ACTION

1.0 SESSION ONE: OPENING CEREMONY
Chaired by Mrs. Jennifer Chiwela

1.1 Introduction of Participants and Adoption of the Agenda
The Assembly started at 9.30 am with participants introducing themselves giving their
names, indicating their coalitions and or organizations they represent, sub region and
country of origin. From this session it was noted that 25 member coalitions were present.
Other partner organizations did participate either as observers or resource persons; they
included Actionaid, CEF, OGB, Aide et Action, UNESCO BREDA, Pan African
Teachers Center and CODESRIA (full list of participants is appended)

After the introductions, members were taken through the agenda/programme by
ANCEFA lead moderator, Mrs. Jennifer Chiwela. The agenda was then proposed for
adoption by Ms. Abigail Dzimadzi Suka of the Civil Society Coalition on Quality Basic
Education of Malawi and seconded by Mrs. Adelaide Sosseh of the Gambia National
EFA Coalition. The agenda for the two days was then adopted by the Assembly as
presented without any amendments.

1.2 Welcome Speech by the Senegalese National Coalition, represented by its Vice
    President, Mr. Seydi Abacar Ndiaye-------------------
He began by giving a brief background of the process of forming the Coalition in Senegal
saying it took them between the year 2000 and 2003 when the coalition was officially
launched. Currently the coalition is working on establishment of thematic groups to
enhance visibility and intensify EFA campaigns in the country. He acknowledged the
support the coalition has been able to get from UNESCO BREDA, the Ministry of
education and ANCEFA. In conclusion he challenged ANCEFA and its member
coalitions to seriously focus on the role of teachers in the EFA campaign in Africa,
arguing that coalitions will never be effective and broad based if at all they don‟t embrace
participation of teacher unions (find full text of his presentation appended).

1.3 Opening Remarks by ANCEFA Lead Moderator, Mrs. Jennifer Chiwela
In her remarks Jennifer noted that this is the first opportunity that ANCEFA has accorded
its members to meet under one roof to transact their own business as an Assembly. This
marks not only a historical moment, but also a milestone and a turning point for EFA
campaign in Africa. Observing that EFA campaign is now firmly grounded in Africa, on
behalf of ANCEFA Regional Steering Committee, she commended Ministries of
Education and EFA Units for their support to ANCEFA member coalitions.

Acknowledging that EFA goals require broad partnership and collaboration, to which all
CSOs are committed to, she thanked UNESCO BREDA for recognizing and working
closely with ANCEFA regional coordination unit. Were it not for Charles Abani, former



                                             2
AAI/Nigeria Country Director and currently AAI/Africa Regional Operation Manager
and Gorgui Sow, ANCEFA Regional Coordinator the concept & vision of forming a
regional CSO network would not have seen the light of day. She therefore thanked
Charles and Gorgui for their commitment and support since inception and throughout
ANCEFA building process. She urged members to take advantage of the space provided
by the GA to share and learn from each other. In making final points she paid tribute to
Justice Egware, former Policy Advisor of CSACEFA, regretting that ANCEFA has lost
one of the most promising campaigners in Africa. Justice died in a plane crash on his way
back home from Lagos where he had launched the GCAP activities in Nigeria. She then
asked the Assembly to rise up and pay last respect to Justice by observing a minute of
silence.

1.4 Goodwill Message from Mr Luc Rukingama, Program Specialist, representing the
     Director of UNESCO BREDA
The representative started by appreciating the important role ANCEFA is playing in the
EFA process in Africa, noting that in the just concluded Dakar+5 review ANCEFA was
part of the Panel which led discussions of the review report. This report provides a
contextual analysis and reviews trends and or status of EFA goals in the continent.
It is a pity and a major concern to UNESCO that some donors like WB & IMF are urging
governments to stop employing teachers, knowing fairly well quality education depend
largely on the quality of teachers in classrooms. UNESCO will continue advocating for
strong CSO coalitions at regional and national levels. The role of civil society becomes
more critical at a time when there is glaring evidence that several countries in Africa are
far from achieving EFA goals/targets by 2015. This He promised that UNESCO will
continue to collaborate with ANCEFA in mobilization of CSO participation in EFA
processes and activities across the continent.

1.5 Challenges Facing EFA goals in Africa; comments by Balaraba Aliyu of
    Actionaid International Education Team Leader in Abuja
Speaking on behalf of AAI, Balaraba decried the possibility that Africa may not achieve
EFA targets set for 2015 as a result of some pertinent obstacles facing both governments
and CSO actors. She went ahead to outlined the main ones as; (i) bad governance (ii)
conflict and instability (iii) dictatorship or absolute state power (iv) poverty & hunger (v)
subordination of women (vi) disparities and gaps in gender equity (vii) weak regional and
sub regional response mechanisms (viii) natural disasters and human security situations
(ix) HIV/AIDs (x) low budget allocations to education – averaging 20% or less of
national budgets (xi) poor donor coordination and rigid conditionalities (xii) corruption
and inequitable sharing of resources (xiii) education not a constitutionally protected right.

1.6 International issues and challenges facing EFA; remarks by Hellen Rama Niang
    Parnership Manager of Aide et Action Africa Office in Dakar
On the global scene, Hellen observed that the major issues of interest for campaigners
and social advocates revolve around MDGs and EFA process and challenged the
coalitions to pick up the gauntlet and take their rightful positions in these platforms. The
other issues that Hellen raised as a major point of concern is that of expanding access at
all levels of education across the globe, particularly access to excluded groups. In



                                             3
addition she pointed out other issues to include cost and financing of education,
especially focusing on user charges, hidden costs and PTA levies which are still very
common in Africa and Asia; lack of CSO participation in education planning and
management which are largely state led and government driven. As part of international
civil society, Aide et Action is pushing for the following core recommendations to tilt the
balance in favor of EFA goals;- radical shift for donors and national governments to
commit more resources to education, increased space for CSO participation in planning,
implementation and monitoring of EFA plans and policies, building capacity of CSO
actors and establishing strong platforms to give CSOs to give non-state actors effective
voices. Finally Aide et Action is ready and committed to helping ANCEFA expand to a
formidable African movement on EFA.

1.7 Civil Society and EFA campaigns in Africa; notes by Emily Lugano, CEF
    Coordinator for Africa
Arguing for greater space, Emily noted that CEF believes that the achievement of EFA
goals lies on viable consultative mechanisms and broader partnerships. She maintained
that CSOs must work closely with their governments to ensure that they deliver on their
commitments to deliver on EFA goals. Setting agenda for this kind of engagement she
outlined the following areas as core for civil society attention;- (i) research and policy
analysis for credible data (ii) advocacy and campaigning (iii) linking micro and macro
level issues (iv) promoting internal governance and democratic structures (v)
coordination of CSO efforts (vi) resource gaps and donor conditionalities (vii) moving
away from service delivery to policy influencing work. As CEF is a funding mechanism
for CSOs capacity building, she concluded by committing CEF support to ANCEFA and
national coalitions.

1.8 Remarks and Comments by Heather Hawa Johnston of Oxfam GB, Regional
    Education Program Manager for west Africa
According to Heather the Assembly was a unique chance to set new direction for EFA
campaign in Africa. She was particularly happy that Liberia was represented in the
Assembly, saying that after 13 years of civil war they have had successful democratic
elections with new hopes and possibilities. One major expectation was that a vibrant civil
society platform will be formed to start pursuing the core EFA agenda in Liberia,
following the establishment of CSO Committee on EFA. Committing that OGB will
continue to work with ANCEFA to strengthen national coalitions in Africa, she reiterated
her belief that ANCEFA and its members need support to hold governments to account at
national level.

1.9 Observations and Comments by Charles Abani of AAI
WB reductionist thinking would want to make us believe that UPE and gender are the
only important parts of the EFA agenda, and this explains their motivation behind the
push for MDGs. In is instructive to note that the MDGs framework has a narrow focus
and leaves out important sub sectors as literacy, ECD, NFE, secondary and higher
education. It is equally worrying and sounds like a double tragedy that the most recent
UNESCO publication (Dakar+5 review report) concludes that education should be seen
as a private commodity for which resources should mobilized from private sources.



                                            4
Registering his disappointment with UNESCO role and leadership of the EFA process in
Africa, Charles challenged ANCEFA to focus its next phase of campaigns on; (i)
demanding more robust leadership from UNESCO (ii) protection of the right to education
(iii) putting a stop to brain drain and privatization of social services like education (vi)
education financing.

Reiterating that CSOs are not given adequate space, he urged them to work hard to be
strong enough to hold their respective governments to account on national commitments
around EFA. Even UNESCO, he said is not giving CSOs adequate recognition evidenced
by the fact that despite ANCEFA playing a key role in the Dakar+5 process, they are not
even mentioned in a single line in the final document. However he underscored the
responsibility ANCEFA has in disseminating such reports with the aim of picking
advocacy issues to influence change. Acknowledging that both ANCEFA and its
members are still very weak in their observatory role (monitoring) as well as research and
analysis, Actionaid is willing to support capacity building and skills development in these
areas.

1.10 Plenary Responses and Discussions on the Status of Education and Priority
    issues for EFA
After brief plenary discussions in response to presentations and goodwill messages
participating members made the following recommendations:
    (i)     On the question on cost and financing of education in Africa, the meeting
            noted that coalitions and other CSO actors must develop strategies to prevail
            on their governments to reduce cost of education at all levels but most
            particularly those of basic education to improve access.
    (ii)    ANCEFA and its members must take the teachers issue as a core campaign
            agenda in Africa. We have to therefore push the governments to put in place
            policy strategies to ensure that Education Ministries pay attention to teachers
            and gradually reduce the number of unqualified teachers in our schools. If we
            want quality education we have to invest in quality teacher training
            programmes.
    (iii)   EFA campaigns in Africa don‟t seem to be focusing at all on Non Formal
            Education despite the fact that most excluded children end up in NFE centers
            after dropping out or failing to access formal education. To target the marginal
            communities and excluded groups proper attention must be paid to alternative
            basic education approaches. As such governments must be pushed to plan for
            and set aside resources to promote & scale up ABE/NFE initiatives.
    (iv)    Last but not least, it is important for ANCEFA to identify and collaborate with
            specialized research institutes/agencies across the continent such as AAU,
            CODESRIA, OSREA and Pan African Teachers‟ Center among others to help
            strengthen capacity of ANCEFA and its member coalitions in planning,
            research, analysis, monitoring & evaluation.

1.11 Official Opening by Honorable Minister for Basic Education and Pedagogy –
   Senegal




                                             5
The Honorable Minister in his speech expressed his deep satisfaction on what ANCEFA
is doing as a regional civil society network in Africa and said that he was really
impressed by the impact of this work across Africa, giving the example of the presence
and commitment of 32 civil society networks coming together and speaking with one
voice. He said that all governments should support ANCEFA „s work because the policy
dialogue between CSO‟s and Governments cannot take place if the civil society remains
fragmented. He expressed the commitment of the Senegalese government to support such
work and underlined the good relation between the national coalition in Senegal and the
Ministry in charge of education. He declared opened the first ANCEFA general
assembly.


SESSION TWO: EDUCATION FOR ALL IN AFRICA: DAKAR +5 REVIEW -
PAVING THE WAY FOR ACTION: A critique by Octive Igbuzor, AAI/Nigeria
Country Director

3.1 Purpose of Report: it was understood that the Dakar+5 review was done to serve 3
specific objectives namely;
            1. Review the implementation of Dakar framework for action on EFA in
                Africa.
            2. Contribute and inform existing thoughts and on going debates on EFA
                across the continent.
            3. Provide perspectives and bench marks for action by EFA actors.

3.2 Context of the Report: The report was prepared against the background of two
important commitments. The first is the commitment made in the Dakar Forum of the
year 2000 that those countries with serous commitments and credible plans will not be
allowed to fail to achieve EFA for lack of funds. The second is the reinforcement of EFA
goals by two of the MDG goals - gender parity in access to Education by 2005 for
primary and secondary cycle and by 2015 for all levels of education and Universal
Primary enrollment by 2015.

3.3 Core Issues and or Agenda raised in the report: The report addresses itself to three
key issues in regard to education.

First, it asserts that education is a strong basis for economic and social development in
Africa and points out that reaching a critical threshold of educated population is a
condition for economic take-off of any nation. In addition, it maintains that “equity in the
distribution of education between individuals is necessary to multiply the expected
beneficial effects” (pg 17)

Second, it analyzes the current situation and dynamics of education systems in Africa by
comparing statistics of 1990 and 2002/3.The report shows that there has been little
progress at primary school level. For instance, in 1990 about 25% of African children did
not have access to primary school education. In 2002/3, the figure is still about 10%.
Similarly, in 1990 about 49% completed primary school education, while in 2002/3, the



                                             6
percentage has increased to only 59%. Surprisingly, secondary and higher education
enrollments have progressed more than primary school enrollments, despite emphasis on
UPE. For instance, in 1990 only 28% had access to secondary education but the figure
increased to 46% in 2002/3. Also, in 1990, only 21% completed secondary education but
in 2002/3, the figure has risen to 39%. This finding has important policy and practical
implications especially for the current advocacy by CSOs to look beyond primary
education in terms of emphasis.

The report sadly projects that on the basis of current structural conditions of the systems
in terms of access, survival and completion of primary education, 31 countries in Africa
will not achieve UPE by 2015.

Third, the report scrutinizes current policies in Africa and compares their efficiency in
terms of quantity, quality and equity. It argues that the success of education system is
dependant on three factors:
    1) Sufficient level of resources
    2) Efficient use of available resources and lastly,
    3) Successful implementation of quality education based on good management.
        (pg110)
The report concludes that identifying more effective policies for education is not enough
but that we must “ move on from a commitment or a sector priority to a true social pact
for education at national level” with solidarity and responsibility at both national and
international levels.

3.4 Contribution and Value addition to EFA Process: whatever the weak points, the
report makes very significant contribution to EFA efforts in Africa. This contribution is
notable in four main areas as outlined below.
     i) Reviews the implementation of the Dakar framework for action and provides
        clear statistics that governments can use in planning and civil society in
        advocacy.
    ii) The report has reinforced the importance of education in social and political
        development and the fact that the right to education is an enabler right that helps
        to achieve other fundamental rights.
   iii) The report has once more raised the alarm that 31 countries will not achieve UPE
        if we do not change course of policy and action.
   iv) The report further shows that we need to exercise caution in the recent move to
        advocate for governments to put emphasis on secondary education.

3.4 Critique of the Report: though the review raises very pertinent issues it has some
gaps or flip sides which should not pass unnoticed. Some of the most discernible ones
include;

i) The analysis captured in the report is economistic, market driven and evades hard
questions of politics, unjust economic order and the role of IFIs in undermining the
achievement of education for all in Africa. A recent report by AAI titled “Contradicting




                                            7
Commitments: How the achievement of education for all is being undermined by IMF”
states.
    WB and IMF‟s stringent monetary and fiscal policies, which are attached as binding
    conditions for loans and agreed upon and implemented by Finance Ministries and
    Central Banks, present serious challenges for the ability of countries to generate more
    revenues, and corresponding increase spending on education, health and HIV/AIDS.
    On the one hand, they are expected to honour their national commitments and achieve
    internationally agreed goals on education, gender and health. But on the other hand;
    the IMFD tells them that they cannot increase their spending to a level necessary to
    achieve the self same goals……..

ii) The impact on education has been cutback in the overall budget allocation to the
sector, and reduction in the number of teachers who are employed or the salaries they are
paid. To compensate, countries have turned to hiring non-professional teachers and have
allowed class sizes to rise to levels where no teaching can effectively take place.

iii) Important reforms to improve quality of education are sacrificed due to lack of
funding. Special initiatives to ensure that all children have access to education especially
girls and those presently excluded (children living in remote rural areas, the disabled,
extremely poor, pastoralists, and conflict affected children) continue to be undermined
and suffer for lack of resources. This position was corroborated by Jeffery Sachs,
Director of the Millennium Project when he stated:

   “International Monetary Fund program design has paid almost no systematic attention
   to the goals when considering a country‟s budget or macro-economic framework. In
   the vast number of country programs supported by the IMF since the adoption of the
   goals, there has been almost no discussion about whether the plans are consistent with
   strategies for achieving them”.

iv) The report fails to capture the context of achieving EFA in Africa. Therefore, there is
no analysis of the impact of HIV/AIDS and conflict on the achievement of EFA.

v) There are dangerous premises and policy options elucidated in the report. The report
gives a market driven conceptualization of education. According to the report,

“……Education can be defined as a private good, largely because it is incorporated, and
consequently to be the concern of private funding”. (pg 56)

vi) The report further states that, we can distinguish between the following values of each
of the levels of education:
     A direct or indirect productive market value (by accommodating knowledge and
        skill by selection) illustrated by the positive link between education and salaries
        on an individual level.
     An unproductive market value, of which many examples given earlier by using
        the result of work on the impact of (basic) education on health, fertility etc.




                                             8
      An optional value, achieving a level of education beyond one‟s own advantage is
       necessary to rise to the next level.

This analysis led the report to conclude that there is justification only for public funding
on basic education than other levels of education. This analysis to us is erroneous and
only reminds us of the position of IMF and WB in the early 1980s at the commencement
of the structural adjustment programs that Africans do not need University Education.

3.5 Conclusion and Way forward
The Education for All in Africa: Dakar +5 report is a useful addition to the resource on
education in Africa. It will be very useful to all those interested in advancing the
education agenda particularly in terms of statistics and challenges that it provides. But as
said earlier, the analyses in the report are market-driven and evade the context of Africa
with some dangerous premises and policy options. It must therefore be used critically and
selectively.

The Assembly resolved that ANCEFA secretariat in consultation with member coalitions
extends further/in depth debate on this report out which a critical review will be prepared
and formally submitted to UNESCO in the next two months.

On a controversial note, Mr Luc Rukingama, representative of UNESCO BREDA
acknowledged issues raised in the critique but insisted that the world is now in a market
economy and therefore there is need to build education that can respond to market needs.
Commenting on partnerships, he maintained that UNESCO is not responsible for
government-donor relationships but only tries to provide the link between governments,
donors and civil society groups and that though UNESCO leads the writing of EFA
monitoring reports, they do not necessarily reflect UNESCO thoughts.

SESSION THREE: PRIORITY SETTING AND CAMPAIGN AGENDA FOR
ANCEFA; Syndicate groups and plenary discussions led by Charles Abani

4.0 ANCEFA Strategic Focus for the Next Three Years

Issues raised in this section will be used to inform and build ANCEFA‟s next strategic
plan. They are based on the input and contributions from coalitions during the first day of
the General Assembly of November 2005. It will also be fed by the plans developed by
the sub-regions. In line with the objectives of ANCEFA, we will work in collaboration
with national coalitions, sub-regional and regional bodies in Africa as well as other
networks across different continents, and through the GCE to:

a) Advocate and protect the rights to education within the context of the whole
   EFA agenda, with a special focus on
      EFA Plans
      A renewed focus on Adult Literacy and excluded groups
      Bring renewed focus to the issue of women and girls education
      Moving beyond minimalist MDG agenda


                                             9
b) Conduct research and develop an advocacy agenda specifically around
       Privatization and the WTO
       The need for quality teaching and quality teachers, including their training and
        conditions of service.
       Conflicts, disasters and emergencies

c) Conduct advocacy and policy input into the process of generating resources for
   EFA, specifically looking at:
       Pushing for actualization and expansion of the FTI
       Advocating against the IMF conditionalities which block new resources
         flowing for education
       Advocating for full, complete and unconditional debt cancellation to release
         resources for education
       Advocating for increased national budgets on education
       Developing budget and expenditure tracking mechanisms and capacity to
         ensure accountability.

d)      Support greater citizen participation in governance and policy dialogue
     through
          Supporting involvement of coalitions in EFA processes at national level on
           policy issues
          Providing capacity for greater participation at local level
          Providing capacity for budget tracking and transparency and accountability

e) Develop strong and robust organizational systems to facilitate and ensure
       Proper coordination ANCEFA activities and member coalitions
       Develop clear information mechanisms and develop two-way communication
         strategy
       Develop a database on expertise and human resources
       Providing capacity building especially in the areas of research, policy
         analysis, advocacy and campaigns.
       Develop and use innovative tools such as report cards in advocacy work
       Develop a robust research, monitoring and evaluation and „education watch‟
         capacity.
       Develop a fundraising strategy and assist in raising new funds for ANCEFA
         work at all levels - national to International.

f) Build strategic engagements, partnerships and alliances in order to;
        Coordinate, support and participate fully in GCE - GWA and follow- up
           activities.
        Strengthen critical engagements with international bodies such as World
           Bank, IMF and UNESCO among others
        Build strategic links with all coalitions in Africa, fostering their emergence
           where they do not exist.


                                          10
          Build alliances with GCE and other networks and coalitions in EFA both in
           Africa and beyond.
          Build links with sub-regional and regional bodies such as ECOWAS, EAC,
           SADC, COMESA, AU, NEPAD, ADEA, and CONFINTEA in pursuit of
           EFA.

   DAY TWO: WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 30, 2005

REORGANIZING TO MEET OUR FUTURE CHALLENGES – BUSINESS
MEETING OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY

SESSION ONE: HISTORICAL OVERVIEW AND STRUCTURE OF ANCEFA;
presented by Andiwo Obondoh, ANCEFA Capacity building coordinator for eastern and
southern Africa

1.1 Strategic Objectives of ANCEFA:
The network exists as a regional platform to pursue the following objectives;
    • Work towards ensuring that African governments elaborate and implement
       concrete, time bound and costed EFA action plans with support and participation
       of civil society.
    • Campaign for concrete strategies and actions from Africa regional and sub-
       regional bodies [ African Union (AU), Economic Community of West African
       States (ECOWAS), South African Development Community (SADC),
       Communauté Economique et Monétaire de l‟Afrique Centrale (CEMAC) and
       New Partnership for Development (NEPAD) ] to address education, HIV/AIDs,
       conflict and poverty in Africa and lobby them to create CSO voice and space and
       put quality education for all in their agenda.
    • Set up an African education watch in order to promote CSO monitoring
       mechanism and harness relevant CSO contributions to the UNESCO Global
       monitoring report. This will help in assessing progress on EFA planning,
       implementation, financing and monitoring with focus on civil society
       participation in the entire EFA process.
    • Facilitate communication, consultation and experience sharing between national
       EFA coalitions, sub-regional/regional networks in Africa and mobilise support
       towards achieving EFA goals by 2015.
    • Help to build and strengthen national coalitions to create strong political pressure
       on governments to formulate credible EFA action plans and mobilize resources
       for their effective implementation

1.2 ANCEFA Building Process; the formation process of ANCEFA began way back in
1999 and for the last 5 years, ANCEFA has undergone different phases of growth as
outlined below in this section.
    • December 1999 – African CSO Preparatory Meeting held in Johannes burg, South
       Africa. The need for regional CSO platform was raised.
    • March 2000 – regional CSO forum where the idea was pursued and discussed
       further.
    • April 2000 – CSO preparatory meeting in Dakar shortly before the World
       Education Forum. Close to 350 civil society groups agreed to form a network of
       CSOs on EFA.




                                           12
   •   May 2000 – a consultative meeting held in Abuja selected 4 countries to organize
       sub regional consultations;- Ghana, Congo, Tanzania and Mozambique. Interim
       Moderators were appointed – Martin Itoua from FAPE (Congo), Leoncia
       Salakana from TEN/MET (Tanzania), Marta Cumbi from EFA Movement
       (Mozambique) Gorgui Sow from NGO coalition in Senegal
   •   February 2001 – ANCEFA held its next round of committee meetings in which a
       decision was made to give ANCEFA space as a strong regional platform or
       movement and for Actionaid together with other partners to take a back seat and
       provide support from behind.

1.2.1 First Generation Sub Regional Consultations; between 2000 and 2001 ANCEFA
managed to organize the first round of sub regional consultative forums out of which the
first Moderators (Steering Committee) were elected. The consultations were held thus;
     • Western Africa – September 2000 convened by GNECC in Accra (the late Koffi
        Appiah). Gorgui Sow was the first moderator for this sub region before being
        replaced by Koffi Adu from GNECC (Ghana) in January 2002 when he was
        nominated as ANCEFA Regional Coordinator.
     • Central Africa – January 2001 convened by FAPE in Brazzaville (Martin Itoua).
     • Eastern Africa – February 2001 convened by TENMET in Dar es Salaam
        (Leoncia Salakana).
     • Southern Africa – July 2001 convened by EFA Movement in Maputo (Marta
        Cumbi).

1.2.2 Expanded Moderators Meeting; In early 2002 - an expanded moderators meeting
was held in Mombassa, Kenya. It brought together the four moderators and additional
representatives from member coalitions. This meeting made three important decisions;
                   • ANCEFA be registered in Dakar as a regional network
                   • ANCEFA establishes a regional secretariat in Dakar
                   • Appointed Gorgui Sow as the first Regional Coordinator

1.2.3 Why location in Dakar?
The expanded moderators meeting explored all possibilities of giving ANCEFA legal
status through registration and resolved that ANCEFA be registered in Dakar for these
three main reasons.
    • Symbolic significance of Dakar as the host of World Education Forum 2000
    • As a way of expressing solidarity with Francophone since there was need to focus
        much more on Francophone Africa given peculiar and difficult circumstances like
        poor indices of education.
    • The fact that UNESCO BREDA is located in Dakar would serve to foster links
        with UNESCO and share in leadership roles around EFA processes.

1.2.4 Second Generation Sub Regional Consultations; between 2003 and 2005
ANCEFA organized the second round of sub regional consultations as outlined here
below.
    • Eastern Africa – September 2003 in Dar es Salaam where FENU – Fred
       Mwesigye, was elected to take over the moderation.



                                          13
   •   Southern Africa – February 2004 in Maputo where ZANEC – Mama Jennifer
       Chiwela, was elected.
   •   Western Africa – April 2004 in Dakar where CCEB, Mama Bernadette Kabre,
       was elected.
   •   Central Africa – April 2005 in Kampala where, BAFASHEBIGE – Madam
       Eulalie Nibizi, was elected.

1.2.5 Joint Sub Regional Consultations; as part of the RWS initiative ANCEFA
organized two regional consultative meetings in July 2004; one in Lusaka for Southern
and Eastern Africa and another in Ouagadougou for Central and Western Africa.

1.2.6 First General Assembly; as a culmination of the ANCEFA building process we
have been able to organize the first ever General Assembly in Dakar, Senegal in
November 29/30, 2005.

1.2.7 Current Structure of ANCEFA; the current structure which the GA seeks to
review is as stated in this outline;
    • The General Assembly made up of all members
    • Regional Steering Committee, made up of four moderators and the RC.
    • Sub regional networks made up of all members in the respective sub regions
       under leadership of moderators.
    • Regional Secretariat in Dakar

The Assembly acknowledged the crucial roles played by both Actionaid and Charles
Abani in this process by providing both technical and financial support.


SESSION TWO: ANCEFA BI-ANNUAL ACTIVITY REPORT; Chaired by Martin
Itoua

2.1 Presentation of the Activity Report by Gorgui Sow – Regional Coordinator
The period 2004/05 was a time for consolidation of gains of previous years, which was
however marked by a lot of internal and external challenges. ANCEFA‟s management
and campaign budget over this period of time was funded primarily by CEF, OGB,
UNDP, UNESCO, AAI, GCE/Dutch, and membership fees.

Overall capacity building and campaign work revolved around the following areas or
activities:
2.1.1 Institutional capacity; ANCEFA strengthened its administration and campaign
platform through RWS Nairobi office and recruitment of RWS coordinator for Eastern
and Southern Africa as well as the coordinator for the Millennium (MDGs) campaign for
Western Africa. Registration of ANCEFA by the government of Senegal also served to
bolster the legitimacy of the network. Internal administration and finance management
has greatly improved after the internal audit commissioned by CEF.




                                         14
2.1.2 Communications; this has improved because of website, bulletin and regional
consultations. The publication of the bulletin has been suspended for some time because
of it was co-funded by CEF and OGB contract ended in August 2004. A new contract
with OGB has just been signed and therefore a new edition will be edited very soon.

2.1.3 Networking and Capacity building; during this period the number of coalitions
have increased from 18 to 27, with new coalitions coming up in all the sub regions. On
RWS national planning meetings were held, two separate joint sub regional consultations
held 2004, leading to improved campaign plans and a strong participation in the GCE
Assembly of Dec 2004. Pamoja and ANCEFA have also been working on strengthening
coalitions on school governance.

2.1.4 Monitoring and Evaluation; activities in this have been limited and isolated. The
most significant being UPE Review in East Africa (Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania) done
jointly with OGB. The report of this study was published and launched in Arusha, in
October 2005. ANCEFA has also launched a regional initiative targeting 11 countries on
gender analysis of education sector policies and plans. This will cover Kenya, Tanzania,
Rwanda, Namibia, Malawi, Zambia, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Gambia, and Sierra
Leone. ANCEFA has also participated in the UNESCO led Dakar+5 review. The launch
of regional education watch initiative is rescheduled for 2006.

2.1.5 International/Regional Campaigns; ANCEFA has been part of the GCE,
CCNGO, millennium campaign (MDGs) and GCAP, UNESCO/OSISA conference for
Southern Africa, ECOWAS education working group, AU ministers conference among
others.

2.2 Challenges, Constraints and Opportunities: these have revolved around short term
funding, weak communication mechanisms, poor coordination between regional
secretariat and member coalitions and weaker campaigns in the Francophone space. As
for opportunities we have initiatives like – RWS, regional education watch, ongoing
partnerships with CEF, AAI, OGB, UNESCO, UNDP, Pamoja and FAWE, as well as
potential partnerships with OSISA and NOVIB.

2.3 Questions and Comments on the Annual Report
The registration status of ANCEFA as a network in Senegal should be reviewed to
upgrade it to regional network status with sub regional platforms and focal points as well
as members or chapters at national level. To improve monitoring of EFA goals and
processes, the observatory in the ECOWAS space should be turned into an activity
undertaken by ANCEFA.

Sub regional networks were encouraged to find time and mobilize their own resources to
have annual consultative forums to discuss progress and issues in their respective sub
regions. In order to improve good management practice ANCEFA must move to develop
financial policies and operational manuals on top of the installation of soft-ware package
and recruitment of Accounts officer.




                                           15
Member coalitions should also emulate this practice, since we keep on calling on our
governments to account for public resources in their control, we must also show the way
by ensuring transparency and accountability in management of our campaigns.
Information sharing is very important in networking and coalition building, now that
OGB has suspended funding for the newsletter ANCEFA must look for alternative
resources to revive and sustain this initiative. It is also imperative that the quality of the
newsletter be improved a great deal. Given that the strength of ANCEFA depends largely
on the strength and activities of its member coalitions, we need to see in future reports a
lot of ANCEFA work going towards strengthening capacities of members. The report
should have gone a bit further to outline clearly what kind of challenges and obstacles
ANCEFA has faced during the reporting period. Objective assessment of the gaps and
weaknesses will help members and ANCEFA partners to critically position themselves to
support the network.

SESSION THREE: ANCEFA FINANCE REPORT AND BUDGET
PROJECTIONS; presented by Christophe Zoungrana, ANCEFA Program Manager and
Felicite Ndong, ANCEFA Accountant

3.1 The finance report as prepared was rejected by the Assembly on the grounds that it
lacked details any standard finance report should have and was not professionally done.
By a resolution of the Assembly the discussions on the financial report were suspended
and the regional secretariat asked to prepare proper books of accounts and share the same
report with all members in the next one month.

3.2 Given the inability of the GA to discuss and approve the Finance report, the
Assembly made the following recommendations;
        ANCEFA secretariat works on its in-house capacity to properly manage its
          resources and present to its members professionally done and audited
          financial reports.
        ANCEFA hires a financial expert in the short term to clear the mess and
          streamline records at the secretariat and prepare proper audited accounts for
          members. The accountant will prepare annual report of accounts for every
          donor and thereafter prepare a composite report (income by source and
          expenditure by source) for all funds received. But for longer term ANCEFA
          secretariat must plan to hire a highly qualified finance manager. These two
          proposals be forwarded to CEF and other ANCEFA partners for
          consideration.
        A copy of a cleaned up financial report should be sent all member coalitions
          for review and input before it is included in the GA report.
        Civil Society Coalition for Quality Basic Education in Malawi offered to
          volunteer their accountant to help in streamlining ANCEFA accounts.


SESSION FOUR: PROPOSED REFORMS AND FUTURE DIRECTION




                                             16
4.1 Key Areas of Achievement in Consolidating ANCEFA as a regional Campaign
Platform:

Functional Secretariat: ANCEFA has a functional secretariat since 2002 in Dakar
(Sénégal) and sub-regional focal points in all the four sub regions. A satellite office in
Nairobi was set up in January 2004 to coordinate RWS project for eastern and southern
Africa till December 2005.

High Visibility: For the last four years ANCEFA has had very high visibility at regional
and international levels. However there has been weak linkages between national, sub-
regional, regional and international campaigns.

Collaboration and Partnerships: ANCEFA has been able to develop key partnerships
with international agencies like ActionAid, Oxfam GB, GCE, FAWE, PAMOJA,
UNESCO and other funding mechanisms such as Commonwealth Education Fund (CEF).
In terms of partnering with sister networks, ANCEFA has on going partnerships with
FAWE on mainstreaming gender in education policies and plans in 11 countries. While
on the other hand working with PAMOJA on builing capacity for effective school
governance (a manual has been published in this area).

Capacity Building of Member Coalitions: through RWS project, ANCEFA in
collaboration with GCE, has been able to launch a capacity building initiative for 17
countries, in which the national coalitions have identified their capacity building needs
and advocacy priorities.

Consultations: Joint sub-regional consultations have been held in July 2004 in Lusaka
(Zambia) for Eastern and Southern Africa and Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) for Western
and Central Africa respectively.

Information Sharing: ANCEFA has a functional website (www.ancefa.org) and a
quarterly newsletter – CESIRI KALAN.

Policy Documents and Advocacy materials: ANCEFA has over the past four years
developed key policy documents for advocacy and policy influencing. Some of these
include papers on: Civil society perspectives and position to MINEDAF VIII, Mid-term
review of CONFINTEA, NEPAD, FTI, and Position Paper for 2004/2005, joint position
paper with GCE, UPE Report for EAC. Posters on Gender Check and EFA goals are in
circulation.

International Policy Influencing: Together with GCE, ANCEFA has had effective
participation in key lobby events, opportunities and meetings. Such opportunities range
from NEPAD education meeting in Maputo (put e in Nepad campaign), FTI meetings in
Amsterdam and Oslo where ANCEFA championed for FTI to be extended to more
countries and its criteria made more flexible. These are already being done. ANCEFA
also pushed for creating greater space for CSOs in FTI partners group. During the High




                                           17
Level Group meeting last year ANCEFA was part of the GCE team which held a side
meeting with FTI education Ministers in Brazil.

MDGs and Millennium Campaign: ANCEFA is the focal point for this campaign in
Western Africa, coordinating and or facilitating CSO involvement and leadership of the
MDGs campaign. Our main interest is to make sure that EFA agenda is given priority in
the MDGs campaign.

CCNGO Focal Point: For the last three consecutive years ANCEFA has served as the
focal point for the UNESCO‟s Collective Consultations with NGOs in Africa. ANCEFA
was nominated CCNGO focal point in Bangkok in 2002, in Porte Allegro in 2003, and
Beirut in 2004. As a result ANCEFA has been able to occupy a new and crucial space
within the EFA Working Group and High Level Group – the two main mechanisms
recommended in Dakar.

UNESCO BREDA: ANCEFA has been working very closely with UNESCO Africa
regional office around processes such as CONFINTEA mid-term review, CSO
preparations towards MINEDAF VIII (Lilongwe), MINEDAF VIII (Dar es Salaam),
Dakar+5 review.

ANCEFA in the GCE: ANCEFA represents African civil society in the GCE board. As
a member of the board ANCEFA has been able to represent the GCE key lobby
events/processes such as FTI, LIFE, Global Monitoring Report (research team on
literacy) and the international taskforce on UPE and gender within the MDGs. Further to
these, ANCEFA has been participating in the planning and coordinating processes of the
Global Week of Action held every year under the leadership of the GCE.

4.2 Issues, Challenges and Rationale for Change
ANCEFA strategy has had great impact at the regional and international levels. However
we have faced some challenges and issues as raised here below;

Effectiveness of Moderators’ Mechanism: The current structure has been a bit costly
and less effective, given that too much money has been going towards sub-regional
secretariats while less and less go directly to member coalitions. Accountability has also
been undermined since the regional secretariat has not been able to report effectively to
the Regional Steering Committee, comprising the same Moderators.

Reporting and Oversight role of Moderators: The structure presently creates or allows
room for conflict of interest as moderators are expected to play dual role of overseers,
implementers and coordinators. Given their full time responsibilities within their
coalitions either as chairs or coordinators, moderators happen to be so busy to allocate
quality and adequate time for coordination of joint initiatives or ANCEFA activities in
their respective sub regions.

Policy and Decision Making: ANCEFA has not had clear management policies,
administration guidelines to facilitate effective decision making and policy



                                           18
implementation despite having well established policy organs. Member coalitions have
also not been very visible in policy development and decision making processes within
ANCEFA.

Ownership and Commitment by Members: Lack of members‟ involvement has led to
low level of commitment and their participation in ANCEFA related activities, leaving
ANCEFA a strong regional outfit without a vibrant constituency.

This reform agenda is aimed at strengthening the general membership by giving them
more say and space in policy development, strategy reviews, campaign planning and
decision making. We must also move to strengthen linkages and coordination between
the regional, sub-regional and national platforms. With constant feedback and strong
member coalitions ANCEFA‟s role as watch dog and monitor of EFA progress in Africa
will be enhanced greatly.

Sustainability and long-term funding options: For the last four years ANCEFA has
been financing its activities based on short term, some times activity based strategies and
plans. There is therefore great need for ANCEFA to firm up a longer term strategic plan
for the next three years. This will encourage longer term visioning and planning for
sustainable programs, processes and campaign initiatives, so as to reduce over reliance on
short term funding mechanisms and ensure autonomy in the long run. In short what this
calls for is a longer term strategic plan to attract sustainable funding.

Documentation, Communication and Information Flow: Though ANCEFA has been
running a quarterly newsletter and has published several documents either directly or
jointly with others, the documentation function within the organization is still very weak,
just like communication and information sharing. The newsletter has not been done
professionally and therefore is not very attractive or presentable.

Regular exchange of information between ANCEFA members is key to the success of
any strategies or campaigns outlined. To strengthen the communication‟s function within
ANCEFA the website must be improved with more/new information and have it linked to
websites of member coalitions, as well as that of partners. Information flow must also
improve between, within and among coalitions as well as between the regional secretariat
and the coalitions.

Positioning and Capacity of Members; The core mandate of ANCEFA revolves around
the area of strengthening capacity of its members to engage effectively in influencing
education policy and practice in Africa. ANCEFA has not played this role effectively,
since majority of the membership still lack a lot in key areas as;
                        Monitoring progress on MDG/EFA goals;
                        Advocacy and Policy influencing
                        Tracking expenditure and budgets among other areas

It has also emerged that ANCEFA either directly at the regional level or through sub-
regional networks and member coalitions has not worked effectively with regional blocks


                                            19
or inter-governmental bodies such as AU, CEMAC, SADC and ECOWAS etc. In the new
direction, the strategy must pay attention to engaging effectively with and influencing
these groupings.

4.3 Constitutional Amendments and Policy Reforms; presented by Fred Mwesigye,
FENU Coordinator and ANCEFA Moderator for eastern Africa

4.3.1 General Assembly Meetings: by a resolution of the GA, it was passed that future
General Assemblies will be held every three years. The regional secretariat will take
responsibility to mobilize resources for and organize the assemblies. As a build up to the
GA process, the sub regions will be expected to organize and fund their own meetings or
consultations, once every 12 months.

4.3.2 Regional Board: A new regional board was formed to replace the current steering
committee made up of moderators. The new board will have NINE members, one
representative each for Eastern, Central and Southern sub regions respectively while
Western Africa will have two slots in the board because of its size in number and
language issues (French and English), bringing the number representing the coalitions to
five. The other four will be drawn from the following categories;
         Teachers unions
         Academia
         Media
         Human rights activists

The new 5 board members will prepare nomination criteria, conditions and forms to be
sent out to member coalitions after this assembly for selection of the four remaining
members. The Board will always remain flexible to admit/co-opt a representative of
North Africa any time they get organized and ready to join ANCEFA. The role of the
new board, as the key policy organ will remain leadership, guidance, resource
mobilization, policy making and overseeing implementation by the regional secretariat.

4.3.3 Strengthening the Regional Secretariat: Currently, the regional secretariat has the
following core staff:
         Regional Coordinator – as Team Leader
         Programme Manager
         RWS Project coordinator based in Nairobi
         Accountant
         Secretary
         guard

It is proposed to this Assembly that the new board establishes and raises funds for the
following new positions:
         Finance Manager
         Communications and Networking Officer
         Logistics and administration Officer



                                           20
          Five Sub-Regional Program Officers (attached to the five board members but
           reporting to the Regional Secretariat)

However before this is done, the secretariat will with immediate effect commission a full
OD review/audit to establish the capacity status – strengths, gaps, needs and weaknesses
of ANCEFA. The review will further provide benchmarks for salaries, allowances and
perks each position should attract, as well as minimum requirements for them and
recommend appropriate organizational structure for ANCEFA and reporting lines.
Current staff job description will be revised to adapt them to the new strategy and ensure
accountability. Specific and detailed Job Description will be developed for new positions.

4.3.4 Establishing new sub-regional secretariats: ANCEFA needs to devolve its
regional secretariat down to five levels with one full time programme officer for each
sub-region – Eastern (1), Southern (1), Western (2), and Central Africa (1). All the five
sub-regional officers will be doted lines to the board member in the sub-region. They
will therefore be housed within the coalition of the respective board member. Specific
and detailed job description will be developed for officers in the five sub-regional
secretariats who will account answer to the regional secretariat.

4.3.5 Developing a longer term Strategic Plan: The GA resolved that the new strategic
plan for ANCEFA will cover up to 3 years; the first one running from 2006 to 2008. The
thinking around this plan should be informed largely by the sub-regional plans, past
regional reports and reports of the consultations held in Lusaka and Ouagadougou last
year and the priorities firmed up during this assembly. The new board will finalize within
the next one month, the proposed plan and circulate to members for input.

4.3.6 Administrative and Policy Implications: Beyond the constitution, we will have to
review and strengthen ANCEFA operational and financial manual and develop a
comprehensive HR manual.

4.3.7 Honorary membership: on membership it was resolved that a new category be
created for honorary members in which eminent educationists and or prominent
personalities with track record of activism in education will be nominated.

The Motion to adopt these reforms was moved by Fred Mwesigye of FENU and
seconded by Bruna Irro of SNEFA and Matarr Baldeh of the EFA Campaign
Network/The Gambia . The motion was supported by 17 member coalitions out of 20
present in the room at the moment, with 3 abstentions. As a result these reforms were
adopted by majority vote of the General Assembly.


SESSION FIVE: ELECTIONS
Presided over by Chike Anyanwu, Coordinator of CEF with support of Emily Lugano,
Africa Coordinator of CEF, Charles Abani of AAI and Heather Johnston of OGB as
returning officers.




                                           21
5.1 Election Procedures: members were taken through the election rules and procedures
as adopted in the ANCEFA revised constitution by the presiding officer. All information
related to elections were shared and discussed by the Assembly. All members were in
agreement that the process was open and just enough to ensure free and fair polls.

5.2 Nominations and Elections of the new Board: the presiding officer divided the
Assembly into sub regions and asked each sub region to meet and agree on one nominee
to represent their interests in the Board. West Africa however, was to produce two
representatives. After the sub regional caucuses the following were presented as dully
elected members of the new ANCEFA Board.
                   Eastern Africa – Fred Mwesigye, FENU (Uganda)
                   Southern Africa – Jennifer Chiwela, ZANEC (Zambia)
                   Central Africa – Eulalie Nibizi, Coalition « BAFASHEBIGE » du
                     Burundi (represented by Deo Gratias Nzunogera)
                   Western Africa – CSACEFA (Nigeria) represented by Dung Pwol
                                     - Oumarou Ibro, ROSEN (Niger)

5.3 Election of Chairperson: After elections of the new Board, the Assembly was
expected to elect directly the new chairperson of ANCEFA. Nominations were called for
the chairperson by the presiding officer. Jennifer Chiwela was proposed by Adelaide
Sosseh of EFA Campaign Network/The Gambia and supported by Roselyne Castillo of
TENMET and Abigail Dzimadzi Suka of CSCQBE. Since no other nominations were
received from the floor after three more calls, Jennifer was declared the new Chairperson
of ANCEFA for the next three years.

The GA mandated the new chairperson to work with the new Board to finalize the
revision of the constitution and prepare amendment procedures to give members room to
propose any amendments necessary before the next GA. A clause should also be added to
the new constitution to make the position of chairperson rotational across the sub regions
after every 3 years.

Based on the priorities agreed at the GA, reports of past activities sub regional action
plans the new Board was mandated to come up with a draft strategic plan for ANCEFA
for the next three years and circulate for discussion by members by mid January 2006.

The new chairperson then gave her acceptance speech and officially closed the Assembly
at 7.00 pm.
